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.

Find out all the options here
The Dalby Farm Pre-K Encounter summer learning program offers an educational and fun first chance for kids to meet and learn about the many animals on a fully functioning farm. Most children of three or four have very little experience interacting with animals – except for maybe the family pet! But for young kids, these kinds of interactions are what lay the foundations for them to be conscientious participants in our global ecosystem. Children that have positive experiences with animals early in life are more likely to develop respect and understanding for the many creatures that rely on human caretakers (and that people rely on themselves).
Through an age-tailored combination of stories, songs, crafts, hands-on activities, free play and interaction with animals, participants will learn about the different farm animals at Dalby Farm. Multi-sensory and engaging activities keep children entertained and reinforce learning! The Farm’s capable and experienced staff will work closely with your child to help them develop a better understanding of and appreciation for farm animals in a light and fun way. Our primary objective is to have every participant not only finish the program with a positive experience and a better understanding of farm animals but also for them to like animals and want to nurture them; not to fear them.
The Pre-K Encounter is open to all potty-trained three and four year olds and is the perfect stepping stone for the ‘Dalby Farm Experience’ summer learning program, which is geared for children entering grades K – 8. Regster here
The Experience Summer Learning Program
‘TheDalby Farm Experience’ is an interactive summer learning program for children entering K-8th grade. Our farm provides an ideal environment for children to ‘experience’ learning through hands-on farm and nature activities, games and crafts.
‘Family Picnic Day’ is on the last day of each session. The participant’s families are invited to pack a picnic lunch and visit the farm. Each child is encouraged to show their family around the farm and to introduce everyone to their new animal friends as well! You will be amazed at how willing they are to share all of the new information that they have learned! Certificates of Achievement are awarded to each participant at the end of the picnic.‘TheDalby Farm Experience’ offers a different theme every day. The presentation, activities, and crafts are designed to reinforce and coincide with the presented subject matter so that the child has fun while learning. Each day of the program covers different material so that the participant can partake in both sessions without repetition.
By attending ‘The Experience’, summer learning program, children will enter a world of discovery and through this, will learn to appreciate the value of conservation and preservation of nature’s wonders. It is Dalby Farm’s hope that each program participant will leave with an increased knowledge and understanding of nature, plants and animals. Our role is not necessarily growing crops and animals but rather raising awareness of the critical role that nature plays in our world.
The Experience is offered to children entering grades K-8 . The program is divided into 3 groups, by grade levels, and is offered, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
Extended day programs are available. Ask us for our rates if you need additional coverage. Pre-registration is required.
