High school musical’s a first-class revival as Hove Park School puts on Grease
Greased lightning came to a school in Hove as a drama team put on a production of the iconic 1970s musical.
Hove Park School’s student dramatists, dancers and singers pulled on their leather jackets and put on a memorable performance of the rock and roll spectacular at the Nevill Campus.
The famous West End musical tells the story of a bad boy falling in love with the girl next door.
Derek Trimmer, Hove Park head teacher, said: “It was fabulous.
Speaking as a former drama teacher, you know it is a really good show when you can sit back and relax and that was precisely the case.”
The leading roles of Danny Zuko and Sandy Dumbroski, played famously on screen by John Travolta and Olivia Newton John, were portrayed by students Max Bower and India Grant.
Other castings included Lelia Tasher, as Rizzo, Lily Alderson and Ashley Cohen as Jan and Roger, and Eleanor Rowland as Marty, who did a solo performance of Freddie My Love.
The cast was entirely made up of children from the school and the music was provided by the school band.
Referred to in recent years as the original high school musical, the Hove Park performance featured all the favourites such as You’re The One That I Want, Grease Is The Word, Summer Nights and Greased Lightnin’.
The production for the school was managed by teachers Ms Banks and Ms Lloyd.
