Barrow pupils perform Grease
Last updated at 16:22, Wednesday, 16 July 2014
GREASE is the word for the cast of a Barrow school production which is performing to sell-out crowds.
The young performers had the audience at Furness Academy’s theatre on their feet, hand-jiving and singing along.
Yarlside Primary School performed to a capacity crowd of 260 last night and tonight as they put their own spin on the popular musical.
Years Five and Six have been rehearsing since May, both after school and at weekends, and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
They have been assisted by Ben Simon and Mike Jones from Abbey Musical Society, who played Danny and Kenickie in their production.
Year Six teacher Jill Reid said: “I wrote my own version to fit in with our school and Ben and Mike have helped us every week.
“Years Five and Six have been unbelievably excited about this. They have worked really hard and their parents are so supportive so they will be screaming and shouting and making more noise than the children.”
The highlight of the performance was the Grease medley, which had everybody on their feet confirming that Grease is just the thing for summer nights.
Mrs Reid added: “We wanted them to go out on a buzz because they’ve worked so hard this year and this is a memory they can keep forever.”
