Grease - The Musical
An excerpt from our Director's Notes, "Talk about coming back with a bang! The announcement to the school that we would be staging Grease - The Musical for the spring performance was met with the most enthusiastic response we have ever seen here at the Duke of York's. Over 100 students turned up to audition for the show, with some amazing singing, dancing and acting talent being displayed across all year groups..."
And what a truly spectacular return to the theatre it was for our Dukie Performers; in the words of our Principal, "A huge amount of work, from staff and students goes into putting on a production of this scale, even more so under the current climate which makes this event even more remarkable. I would like to thank Mr Socci, Mrs Cottage, Miss Gerrard and Mrs Acres who have provided the overall direction necessary to put the show on the stage and bring out the best in the cast and crew. Mr Irlam, Mrs Briggs and Mrs Castle have been responsible for the most amazing set, costumes and props and of course, the talented Mr Preece providing the soundtrack! It is however, the students themselves, be they performing, working behind the scenes or in the technical team, who never cease to impress with their levels of commitment and energy".
