'Grease': 2013 Production
Gordon's School Presents 'Grease'
Gordon’s school production of Grease played to capacity audiences on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th of March. The cast, crew and band have worked incredibly hard to create this production which was received with delight. The school gym was transferred into an American High School yard, cafeteria, bedroom and diner, amongst other venues, by the creativity of our set design team. The band created the mood wonderfully as did the sound, lighting and costume. The arrival of Greased Lightning, Kenickie’s car, was a highlight as was the dance which followed. Strong performances came from all the cast but particular mention must be made of Vivienne Salter as Sandy, Michael Broom as Danny, Pippa Boorman as Rizzo and Oliver Joseph as Teen Angel whose vocal performances were stunning. The Pink Ladies and T Birds created engaging comedy, ably supported by Eugene and Patty, our ‘geeks’!
However the strength of the production was the total commitment by all cast members from Chorus to those playing main roles which was clearly evident in the big numbers such as We Go Together and Hand Jive where everyone performed with energy and enthusiasm, filling the stage with vibrancy and colour. Our choreographers and vocal team have worked tirelessly to create, rehearse and polish these numbers.
Productions rely on the commitment and dedication of the entire team and we are grateful for all the extra time and effort given by the musicians, choreographers directors and technical crew.
DVDs of the production will be available after Easter.
