All Saints Academy is delighted to report two hugely successful performances of Grease. Playing to packed audiences the cast and backstage crew put on a masterful production of this musical. The audiences were fully engrossed as the story of Sandy and Danny revealed itself. The acting and singing were truly amazing and the screenwriters’ humour was fully appreciated. The dancing was something else, and it was a delight to see students from all years – Year 7 to Year 13 – performing together with such panache, grace and confidence. Students at All Saints have talent and in great abundance!
We were delighted to host a free show to Houghton Regis Primary Schools where the performance was received with a spontaneous wow! We are delighted that our future students could enjoy the show – we know that many amongst our younger audience were really impressed with the performance and want to see more – not least of our main characters!
The audience’s response to the second performance brought the house down and was a true testimony to the quality of the production. We already have a demand for tickets for the next production!
The complimentary refreshments provided by our Sixth Form Catering and Hospitality students went down a treat and there were many hugely positive comments about the quality of the catering.
Huge thanks go to all students involved, especially to the backstage and front of house crews who made great efforts to make sure that the whole production ran smoothly. More than 100 students were involved in the production – quite a significant proportion of our student body.
Many thanks also to the large number of staff involved, both backstage and elsewhere, and a monumental thank you to Mrs Spurling and Miss Swain. Leaving the best till last – well done Miss Howard! Much of the success of this wonderful performance was down to you and well done to you in bringing this project to its fantastic conclusion. We cannot wait for the next show!
