Grease Hand Jives its Way into the BHS Theater this Spring

“Grab your poodle skirts and leather jackets. It’s going to be a wild, electrifying ride”
Zach Wilson

The 1978 movie Grease continues to entertain from generation to generation, but will Grease lovers actually be familiar with the show The Barberton High School Vocal Music Department will be putting on in March?

While enjoying the show, the audience will notice that this version of Grease is very unfamiliar to those who have never watched the musical. The scenes and actions of the characters are nothing like the movie. Love interests, the characters’ personalities, and scenes are all switched up. The viewer may even say, “This is not Grease.”

Sometimes different is good. Mrs. Petrarca, the theater director, has this to say about the upcoming musical, “Grease is a highly energetic, fun event that should be entertaining to all. If you enjoy dancing, joking, and a little bit of drama you won’t be disappointed.” The entire cast is filled with great talent and dedicated members who plan to make this musical one to remember. You can catch Zachary Wilson as Danny Zuko and Faith Fetherston as Sandy Olson. The cast is working hard and quickly getting things ready for the spring.

Don’t forget to purchase a ticket in March for a show full of dancing, singing, and fun, to support your BHS vocal music department. The show will run on March 23rd, until March 26th.

“Grease is a highly energetic, fun event that should be entertaining to all. If you enjoy dancing, joking, and a little bit of drama you won’t be disappointed.”

Barberton High School Reacts to School Threat on Social Media


On December 18, 2016, Barberton High School received a threat on an app called “After School”. Security was briefly amped up, with police officers at every entrance.  Many parents were outraged that school wasn’t cancelled due to the threat. Social media was ablaze with fear on that day. I was not afraid and made the decision to attend school to see what was going to happen. Attendance was at an all time low.. My largest classes were mostly empty and I left after 5th period. This incident exposes the power that social media has on our lives. The students who made the threat were disciplined by BHS administration. I made a video documenting my day.
