School live streams Grease production in students’ first stage show in two years
Talented students have made a glamorous return to the stage.
Twenty-two students from Wellfield Community School, in Wingate, put their dancing shoes on for a much-awaited performance.
Grease is the first musical the youngsters have been able to take part in since Oliver! in 2019.
And although they couldn’t have a live audience in and had to pre-record songs because of Covid restrictions, the show has still gone on and will be streamed to online viewers.
Pippa Dodd, assistant headteacher and school head of music, said: “Obviously, because there’s very stringent rules on singing in schools, we recorded everything in a Covid-safe way and then layered it up."
Mrs Dodd, who directed the show, added: “It was just brilliant. The kids loved doing it, it was great to see them back on the stage finally after so long.
"I’m already planning the next show for the next July.”
Tickets for the streaming, which takes place at 7pm on Saturday, cost £1 from https://www.booktixlive.co.uk/portal/well.
