Grease is the word at Heritage Hall! The Johnson County High School Players hand jived their way into the hearts of audiences all last weekend and they’re set to do it all again on Friday, May 8 and Saturday, May 9 at 7:00 p.m.
New JCHS Players’ Director Michael Eggers dedicated every performance of Grease to former director Lisa Zeggert. Though Zeggert is missed by both students and staff, Eggers did a phenomenal job directing this production. Eggers enthusiasm for the program and his students was easily witnessed through the tireless efforts he made to ensure the production was a success and his efforts certainly weren’t fruitless.
The ultra cool Danny Zuko was played by the strikingly talented Morgan Eggers. Though Eggers has only been a part of the JCHS Players for two years, he has many large productions under his belt including The Wizard of Oz, High School Musical and A Christmas Carol. Morgan is both a powerful vocalist and a captivating performer – it’s easy to see why he was the clear choice to play the smooth talking high school King, Danny Zuko.

The role of Sandy Dumbrowski or more commonly known as Sandra Dee, was acted by Janae Eshelman. Janae is a seasoned stage veteran and utilizing her skills and her wealth of experience, Janae was able to entrance audiences with her honey toned vocals and innocent retorts. In short – Janae gave audiences chills and they’re multiplying because she’s electrifying.
