Grease the Musical at Massasoit in Brockton MA

The Massasoit Theatre Company will be performing the Broadway musical  Grease ” one weekend for 3 shows the Buckley Performing Arts Center in Brockton MA.Grease the Musical at Massasoit  in Brockton MA

 

Friday & Saturday-May 5 & 6 at 8:00pm
Sunday, May 7 at 3:00pm

It’s 1959, and Rydell High School’s senior class is in rare form. The too-cool-for-school “Burger Palace Boys” are stealing hub-caps and acting tough and their gum-snapping, chain-smoking “Pink Ladies” are looking hot in bobby sox and pedal pushers. The 1950s high school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical that is both an homage to the idealism of the fifties and a satire of high schoolers’ age-old desire to be provocative and rebellious. At the heart of the story is the romance between hot-rodding gangster, Danny Zuko, and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. They had a secret romance in summer, but now back in the context of school, peer-pressure and cliques make their love a bit more complicated. Can Danny maintain his cool dude status and still make demure Sandy his girl? The whole gang sings and dances around Danny and Sandy’s romance, through such hit songs as “Greased Lightnin'”, “We Go Together”, and “Mooning”, recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. Grease is among the world’s most popular musicals and has a cult-like following, especially among teens! Come re-live the womp-bomba-lu-bop days with this iconic American songfest.

TreeTop Adventures Aerial Forest Ropes & Zipling Park in Canton MA

TreeTop Adventures  at the Irish Cultural Centre  is a new forest  aerial & ziplining  park in  Canton.  TreeTop Adventures provides family fun for ages 7 and up.  TreeTop Adventures Aerial Forest Ropes & Zipling Park in Canton MA

TreeTop Adventures is an aerial forest high ropes course consisting of more than 130 platforms installed in the trees and connected by various configurations of cable, wood, and rope to form bridges and zip lines. Groups of bridges link together to form separate trails. Although every trail has zip lines on them, you will need to climb to get to them. There is much more fun than just zip lining to be had! There are 10 trails in total for ages seven—adult. Each trail has varying difficulty level ranging from beginner to expert. The experience is safe, fun and most  Importantly exciting!

TreeTop Adventures is all about active participation – there are no motorized rides in the park. The trails are designed for everyone to enjoy, and are designated as Yellow, Green, Blue, and Black, similar to ski trails. As one progresses through the difficulty levels, the bridges become less stable under your feet requiring more balance, agility, focus and arm strength. The trails range from easy (yellow) to expert (black) and so every age and fitness level will be find trails that are both challenging and achievable. Ages 7 to teens to adults to seniors find their comfort zone and seek greater challenges.

Climbing at Treetop Adventures is about personal challenge and achievement. There is not a correct way of crossing the bridges. We leave it up to you to figure out the most efficient way of getting from platform to platform.
