“Grease” was a play before it was a blockbuster movie. In fact, at the time that it closed its run on Broadway in 1980, it had racked up more than 3,000 performances since its start in 1971. The play has different songs, and the school version of the play is very G-rated when compared to the original production. Marathon High School’s drama club will perform “Grease” this weekend — Friday and Saturday, April 9-10 with a 7 p.m. curtain, and on Sunday, April 11 with a 2 p.m. curtain. “It took me a while to appreciate the differences between the movie and the play,” said director Carrollyn Cox,...

THE NEED FOR SPEED: MARATHON HS STUDENT WINS SCHOLARSHIP TO FLY

On March 29, 16-year-old Molly Prince received the first check for her EAA Chapter 1241 youth flying scholarship at Marathon Airport. For the Keys Weekly photo opp, she wore mirrored aviator sunglasses while flight instructor Sol Bradman handed her a check and gave a thumbs-up, in true Top Gun style. All we needed was Maverick and Ice Man in flight suits to saunter on by, and the scene would have been perfect. But it’s perfect enough for Prince. “I feel really blessed,” Prince told Keys Weekly. “It’s really cool. Especially being one of the few women in the field.” The Experimental Aircraft...
