Hey Man! Hillel students perform Purim inspired ‘Grease’ parody


Eighth grade students perform a song and dance in their original production, Shmaltz! Eighth grade students perform a song and dance in their original production, Shmaltz! Hillel Academy marked Purim on Thursday, March 24 with an eighth grade performance of Schmaltz!, an original parody of the musical, Grease.

Set in Shushan High School, main characters included the student council president, King Ahasuerus; the captain of the football team, Haman; the coach of the football team, Mordecai; and the new Jewish girl/Homecoming Queen, Esther. The eighth graders, dressed in poodle skirts and white t-shirts and jeans, acted out the parts, sang songs and danced to the sound track.

Every time Hey Man’s (Haman’s) name was mentioned the sanctuary filled with the sound of groggers and booing. All ended well when the captain of the football team was expelled and Esther was accepted by the student council president.
