This musical about hot-rodding, high-spirited teens at Rydell High ran for eight years on Broadway with good reason — great tunes in the ’50s style of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis plus lots of youthful energy. It’s the kind of show audiences love to see again and again. 

Grease is a perfect show for Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre’s annual production at the Covedale Center: It’s a summer program for starstruck kids from all over Greater Cincinnati. They’re playing Danny Zuko and Sandy Dumbrowski and all the other hoods and good girls. 

Through Aug. 4. $10-$20. Covedale Center for Performing Arts, 4990 Glenway Ave., Covedale, 513-241-6550, cincinnatilandmarkproductions.com.
