Grease is the word…

Grease is the word…

Caterham School’s Humphreys Theatre was transformed into Rydell High School last week as Greasers slouched on the bleachers, the Pink Ladies partied, Patty shook her pom poms, Eugene escaped from the clutches of Cha Cha and Miss Lynch tried to keep control of the 75 strong cast. The School’s Autumn Term drama production was a knock-out success.

Well-known songs such as Greased Lightning, Summer Nights and You’re the One that I Want were brought to life by the amazing Grease Band and fantastic singing and dancing. Lauren as Sandy and Hugo as Danny performed outstanding solos of Hopelessly Devoted and Sandy, creating a powerful emotional connection with the audience within an energetic, action packed show.

The Teen Angel boy band and dancers, led by Nathan, made a theatrical entrance in a sea of haze, angel wings and hair curlers. This year’s backstage and technical teams were entirely pupil run. Their professionalism and efficiency were outstanding as the separate departments – lights, sound, props, set, costume and make up – worked together to add context, colour and sparkle to the production.

By the end of the show the audience were on their feet hand jiving with the cast as Johnny Casino led the entire auditorium in a sensational reprise of Born to Hand Jive.
