'Grease': A great teacher and a great cast
January 8, 2009 · 6:38 AM
We read with interest the great article about Friday Harbor High School's production of the musical "Grease" (Jan. 2 SanJuanJournal.com).
Congratulations to Fred Yockers and all the cast. Although we are currently living in South Africa for several months, we found your article on the Internet. It is wonderful to be able to read about the show, even though we cannot be there to see it.
We send special congratulations to our grandson, Tristan Wood. We are delighted that he is able to share his talent and his beautiful voice in a production like this one. It is admirable that so many talented young people have been able to participate in this kind of production.
Friday Harbor is a community that has always been supportive of its youth, and Fred Yockers has been a great role model as well as a fantastic teacher. Thanks to Fred and to all the volunteers. We know what an effort it takes to put on a production like this in a small community.
