The reviews are in! Grease was a hit!!!

The reviews are in!!! Grease was a hit!

On Tuesday and Wednesday night, our secondary students performed for back-to-back sold out crowds. After months of rehearsals, their hard work was rewarded with audience participation, cheering, laughing and capped off with standing ovations both times! You could see the actors, the musicians and the audience thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the musical.

Principal Thomas attended the show and he couldn’t rave enough about it. “Wow! If you didn’t get to see our production of Grease, you have missed the best show in town; no, you have missed the best show I have ever had the pleasure to watch.

Forty-one years ago, Grease was made, but last night, our own T-Birds & Pink Ladies brought this musical to Al Ain, and there are simply not enough superlatives to describe this toe-tapping performance.

Once again, I am a very proud Principal and I’m already excited about next year’s performance which will be held in our new auditorium which is on schedule to be completed by September.

Well done to all our performers and musicians. It really was electrifying!”
