Pictures from my trip to NYC to see Grease on Broadway 14 years ago

Here’s a slideshow with pictures from my trip to NYC to see Grease on Broadway 14 years ago. The guy that played Danny was from WV & that’s how I got to see them perform. His name was Derek Keeling and unfortunately he passed away several years ago.

Slideshow of pictures from my NY Grease on Broadway trip

13 years ago I got the opportunity to take a bus trip to NYC and see Grease on Broadway. Derek Keeling, who played Danny & whom I was able to get a picture with, was a graduate of Winfield High School and it was some people from his school that put together this day trip on a bus to see him perform. A local news reporter went with us, so after the show was over we got to talk to the cast members & ask questions.

It was a really fun experience and the picture of me posing with the Barbies was after the event. They gave us a couple hours to go sightseeing and I thought it was cool that I found the Grease Barbies. 😁

The last picture was at the end of the day, right before we were getting ready to head back home. I look mad, but I was just really tired and wanted a picture with the poster! 🙈🤣

I was saddened when I learned that Derek Keeling passed away in December of 2018. I’ve included an article from my local newspaper talking about it.
