Roy Gilbreath Auditorium at Bismarck High School
Crystle Lightning never saw people like herself reflected in the arts and media. So along with her husband, MC Redcloud, Lightning thought there was no better way to celebrate their identity in spaces where they felt Indigenous representation was excluded than by revamping one of their favorite musicals — Grease. Their traveling theatre production is called Bear Grease — an Indigenous twist on the traditional story of high school love. The cast has familiar characters, but Bear Grease was written to give each Indigenous influence, with elements of fashion, humor, and music to really make it their own.
This event is sponsored by Bismarck State College: Bringing Humanities to Life, Sacred Pipe Resource Center, Indigenous Association, Cankdeska Cikana Community College, North Dakota Council on the Arts, and Humanities North Dakota
