The Summit Playhouse, founded in 1918 and celebrating our 100th Season, is NJ’s oldest continuously running community theatre. Our season consists of three main stage plays, several youth productions, theatrical workshops and community collaborations. Each production benefits a local outreach, and each year a theater arts award is presented to two high school seniors. Our home, built in 1891, is listed on the National Registry of Historic Buildings.

It’s 1959, and Rydell High School’s senior class is in rare form. At the heart of the story is the romance between greaser Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. After a whirlwind summer romance, Danny and Sandy are unexpectedly reunited when she transfers to Rydell High for senior year. But can they survive the trials and tribulations of teenage life, and find love once more?
With hit songs including "Greased Lightning", "We Go Together”, and “Hopelessly Devoted to You”, experience the friendships, romances and adventures of high school pals in the 1950s and see why Grease is still one of the most popular
musicals of all time!
