Grease by Auckland Girls Grammar School

On Tuesday Glenbrae school and other schools around Auckland was invited to Auckland girls grammar for a play. Grease is a musical play. There was two groups of cool kids one was the T-Birds and the other was the pink ladies. The main characters where Danny and Sandy.

My favourite part of the musical was when they showed the crowd Grease lighting and started singing the main song grease lighting. I liked the play because it was multicultural and it was really fun to watch. Id recommend you to watch the play because I'm sure there will be a lot of people that will enjoy the musical.

I would give the play 5 stars!
