Review of Grease by Auckland Girls Grammar School

There was a boy named Danny and a girl called Sandy. They thought that they would never meet again after seeing each other at the beach. She enrolled in his college, Rydell high but they broke up.

My favourite part of the play was when they sang Grease Lightning. I really liked the story of the play and how some people didn’t like Sandy. I liked the singers because they were very talented and they had nice

I would recommend the play to my family and friends my age. I will tell other people to go and watch it because I thought it was really good.

I would give it 5/5 because their acting was beautiful.
