Fantastic finale as curtain comes down for last time

THE curtain has come down for the final time at West Lakes Academy’s old theatre.

Grease the Musical, performed over two nights last week, was the historic final show in the old theatre building before the new West Lakes Academy, complete with a state-of-the-art theatre, opens on April 30.

The show took place in front of two packed-out audiences and was performed and organised by Year 11 and 13 students as part of their performing arts coursework.

“The students thoroughly enjoyed performing this production of Grease and produced a show that could challenge any professional company; highlighted by their slick, energetic and well-rehearsed performances,” said performing arts teacher Deborah Brown.

“Rizzo’s interpretation of the song There Are Worse Things I Can Do was sung with such intense power, emotion and feeling, that the audience felt compelled to cheer and applaud.

“Sandy’s innocent performance captured the hearts of the audience with her beautiful rendition of Hopelessly Devoted To You, followed by a more sassy interpretation of You’re The One That I Want.

“The T-Birds, The Pink Ladies and Patty Simcox provided entertainment and humour that helped to create an authentic rendition of the classic book musical.

“Both productions were vibrant, entertaining and full of humour, which left the audience feeling uplifted and ready for more.

“Something which should be entirely possible given the quality of students and facilities available in the all- new West Lakes Academy.”
