=oA 2oo community News ,,, ,,, ii q,': Del= Coates Managing Editor When cast members from "Grease" climb into the vintage car on the Town Hall Theatre stage this week, they will have Rick Weaver's construction students at Quincy High School to thank. Weaver's students spent every period for a week build. ing a '50s replica of a Mercury for the play. It was originally framed before wring break. The vehicle is a combination of wood and styrofoan Weaver said that originally the stu- dents had assembled an entire car, but the play's producer and director, Terry Galhgher, said it wouldn't fit on stage--so off went the back. The project hit another snag when Weaver told Gallagher the car would take about five minutes to assemble. ' l'hat's not fast enough," Gal- lagher told him. Instead, it was back to the drawing board, where Weaver took the assembly time down to 30 seconds. From the tires donated from a junkyard to doors that actual- ly open, the car will present the ideal focal point for "Grease." "The students loved making the car," Weaver said.

The '50s model is made of wood and Styrofoam and will soon be on-stage at the Town Hall Theatre in Quincy.
