Is Derek "The One That We Want"?
Okay. I have to admit. I had no intention of ever watching “Grease: You’re the One That I Want.”
But now that the show has a local connection, I have no choice but to tune in.
If you missed it, Derek Keeling, from Scott Depot, WV (He lists Charleston on the NBC website.), is one of the six finalists for the role of Danny in the new Broadway production. Derek is a graduate of Winfield High School and was a member of Winfield’s show choir.
On the show, Derek is known as the “wholesome” Danny. He’s definitely the best looking.
Interestingly, two of the finalists for the role of Sandy are Buckeyes with one from Massillon and one from Cincinnati.
If you want to tune in to see Derek, “Grease” airs Sunday (January 28th) at a special time of 7 p.m. on NBC. You can watch previous episodes at www.nbc.com...
