Grease Review

A fantastic show performed by the senior school students, they performed Grease as a school play, It was absolutely magnificent, all the cast had a wonderful connection with their roll and all the extras did a fantastic job even if they didn’t have a big part. The costumes and the props were amazing. There was some bad language throughout the play and Mr Lamb was shocked and would not stop covering his ears!
