Grease Actor Spotlight: Olivia Morgan

Untitled design (5)
Grease has always been something special to me. When I was little, I would watch our VHS copy of it at least twice a week. It was definitely a favorite movie for many years of my life. I always wanted to be in a production of Grease, and when I heard that the playhouse had decided to put one on, I knew I had to be in it.
So far, this is my 16th production since I started acting in 2012. You may have seen me in some Parkway Playhouse Junior productions when I played Miss Hannigan in Annie Jr., The Sour Kangaroo in Seussical Jr., and a Hot Box Dancer in Guys And Dolls Jr.
For the 68th main stage season at the Parkway Playhouse, I was in The King & I, and also A Midsummer Night’s Dream as Mustardseed. For the 69th season I was in All Shook Up as an ensemble member. And this season I played Nancy Wilson in The Ballad Of Frankie Silver.
My favorite part about the entire rehearsal process has definitely been getting to meet all the new people in the cast. Through this process, I’ve gotten closer to new friends that I’ve met during this year, gotten even closer to old friends, and even met some possibly life long friends whom I love with all my heart. It’s truly been an absolutely amazing experience.
One of my favorite parts in the show is when Sonny gets caught in the hall by Mrs. Lynch. The way he rambles on is absolutely hilarious! Basically anything he does makes me laugh hysterically.
You should definitely come see this show, because it is such an energetic and fun experience! The choreography is so fun to watch, and the songs are so exciting! It’s guaranteed to be a fun night of laughing, singing, and dancing in your seat!
