Eighty students from grades 9 through 12 appeared in Summerland Secondary School’s performance of the 1970’s Broadway Classic, Grease, which ran Feb. 23, Feb. 26 to 29 and March 1st.
We went to see Danny, Sandra D. Rizzo, Kenickie and all the other student actors pour their hearts and souls into a fantastic performance on closing night, after which there were rousing accolades given to and by their drama teacher, Heather Ayris.
Ms. Ayris informed the audience that the show had been run and choreographed entirely by the students and that they had worked on the production everyday since September as well as Saturdays.
Well, the students’ efforts certainly paid off in a quality performance, hampered only by the theatre’s sound system. It might therefore be nice if the school rewarded them in return with new speakers for the theatre.
New system or not – we can’t wait to see which production they’ll choose next year.
