Amy Dominguez GLENDALE -- Glendale Community College's "Grease" is fun for the whole family. The music is great, the costumes are festive and the tale is a classic boy-meets-girl love story. The setting is 1959 at Rydell High School. The production is much the same as the classic John Travolta-Olivia Newton John movie. You have the Pink Ladies, the guys in black leather jackets (they're called the Burger Palace Boys), the cheerleaders and The DJ's.
