From its debut, The Magic Garden, which Demas filmed on her day off from “Grease,” was a hit. “Kids understood that we were really friends,” Janis said. “It wasn’t just some made-up show with two people who hardly knew each other.” In fact, the show only had a one-page script — the hosts’ banter was mostly spontaneous.
CAROLE DEMAS, who created the role of Sandy, in the original Broadway Production of GREASE, as well as the Title Role in THE BAKER'S WIFE, and created leading roles in numerous other shows, various Soap Operas and primetime TV dramas. She continues (in NYC) to be an extraordinary singer, an engaging speaker with over 60 years in professional theatre.

For the popular PBS Series GREAT PERFORMANCES, Carole joined other stars of the Great White Way for Lorimar’s SHOWSTOPPERS - THE BEST OF BROADWAY. On film, Carole starred in the 300 YEAR WEEKEND, with William Devane and THE SPACE WORKS for Trans-Lux Corp. Other films include appearances in: A LOVELY WAY TO DIE for Universal Films and the recently released THE DISAPPOINTMENTS ROOM.
PAULA JANIS traveled widely as a solo musician and folk singer, performing everywhere from Greenwich Village’s Café Wha? to political campaign events at Madison Square Garden. Joining the folk trio, The Wee’Uns, as lead vocalist and musician, she enjoyed appearing on television, at university concerts including Princeton and NYU, and at such famous venues as The Manhattan Center and Carnegie Hall.
As Co-Star of The Magic Garden, the charming children’s show produced by WPIX-TV, New York, Paula combined her two loves, music and education, into an award-winning series which continues to delight both young and old to this day.
