    Hello…I direct a youth theatre group and they have asked about doing Grease. I didn’t want to do the full version because of some of the content. I was surprised to see that you had done a junior version of this musical. Where can I get the scripts/rights to do Grease Jr? I can’t seem to find it online.

    Thank you for your help.
