While at Burlingame High School, Dianna was active in the drama group at the school. For their 2004 school production, the class put on the iconic “Grease”! Named after the 1950s United States working-class youth subculture known as greasers, the musical is set in 1959 at fictional Rydell High School (based on William Howard Taft School in Chicago, Illinois) and follows ten working-class teenagers as they navigate the complexities of peer pressure, politics, personal core values, and love.
Dianna’s character: Dianna portrayed Martina Helena Maraschino, more commonly known as Marty. She is one of the members of the Pink Ladies, and her boyfriend is Sonny. Marty often tries to act sophisticated. She is generally nice, but can be uninterested with conversations unless they are about her or juicy gossip. In “Summer Nights”, she doesn’t seem to care about what Sandy is saying, along with Rizzo. Marty is very concerned with appearing mature and not seeming juvenile, as indicated by her embarrassment when Jan acts childish. This is probably due to her romantic life; Marty has many pen-pals who she claims sarcastically to be “hopelessly devoted” to. One of them is a marine deployed to Korea. She likes older men, and is flattered by the older Vince Fontaine flirting with her at the Rydell prom.
