Congratulations to all of the sixth formers involved in the school production of Grease. It was a thoroughly enjoyable production and on a cold winter evening, its evocation of those sultry summer nights of 1950s America were particularly welcome.
I know how much the audiences enjoyed themselves and this is testament to the professional polish of the performance. Everything was handled so well: choreography, stage management, live band, wonderful ensemble pieces - as well as some very entertaining solo performances … and one particularly memorable duet.
It is great to see that sixth formers were involved in every element of the three performances: front of house, selling refreshments, playing music, handling the technical side of the production and – of course - making up most of the cast.
Thank you to site and IT staff for the role they played in making the production such a success – and especially to Mr House and to Mrs Brownley for all the hours they put in after school to give students the opportunity to be part of something so joyous!
