Friday Last Day of School, June 1st, 1962, the Rydell event of the year!
And it's called June Moon due to the fact that a it takes place in June, as in usual school years go from September to June. Ignore that the dates on the sets are inaccurate, the year the Talent Show takes place in is actually now 1962.
- Stacie & Gracie performing Brad, The Song. Takes place during the T-Birds' pursuit of Lone Rider. It could be assumed that somebody else played the piano for their act as Michael Carrington was just returning from the successful leap over Dead Man's Curve, which was only a little over 4 miles from Rydell, so Michael was able to perform for the rest of the acts.
- Martin Meisner and His Red-Hot... Accordion. A `fortunate' equipment malfunction - the Flamenco dancer's fan snapping in half - ended the song early, much to Mr. Stuart's relief.
- Stephanie Zinone and the Ghost of Lone Rider (Actually Michael Carrington backstage - he survived - singing from backstage) performing Love Will Turn Back (The Hands of Time)).
- The Preptones were going to compete with their male viewpoint singing of the Chordettes "Mr. Sandman" but the T-Birds "detained" them by tying them to the shower pole in the boys locker room and drenching them.
Spoiler alert! Both the T-Birds and the Pink Ladies won their division of the talent show! Like there was any doubt ;-)
The Grand Prizes: 100 long-playing records, 2 certificates for 50 LPs each, including "At least Ten Roy Orbison albums" and classical music like Tchaikovsky and Chopin (Tee-Choks-ski and Choppin, according to Louis DiMucci). 50 rock artists, 50 classical artists.
And to Goose McKenzie's chagrin, the T-Birds won the classical albums. It's a safe bet that Rhonda Ritter wouldn't share her Roy Orbison albums doe to Goose razzing her about her nose - which was actually fairly petit - on the first day of school.
