Proud parents, teachers and theatregoers packed into the Seckford Theatre at Woodbridge School on Tuesday night, as pupils pulled on their leather jackets and pink lady costumes to perform Grease.  

The cast made up of students from Year seven to Year 13, was huge and as they ran on stage in their impressive costumes, I immediately knew it was going to be a good night!  

Grease, is not only a major film, it started life as a Broadway musical and for that reason, there were a few songs in the show that I hadn’t heard before, this only added to its charm.

However one of the songs that stole the show on Tuesday night did make the film – Beauty School Drop Out.  

Alexander Ridge threw himself into the role of ‘Teen Angel’ belting out the song whilst wearing a beautiful bright pink shirt.

Serenading Lakisha Charema as beauty school dropout Frenchy, the crooner had the audience giggling along.  

The duo had a lovely charm about them and you could tell they loved performing the number – just as much as the audience loved watching it!
