They're jumping through hoops to get ready for "Grease." Really.

Theatre students at New Canaan High School have been busy learning the finer points of hula hooping as they prepare for a scene in the school's upcoming production of "Grease."

The popular musical about high school life in the 1950s features rock and roll music and dancing.

The production will be staged March 19, 20 and 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the school's auditorium. Tickets are available at www.newcanaanhighschooltheatre.com.
