During the final High School assembly for Term 2, IGS Music Teacher and Musical Director Nik Glass warned the audience they’d find it impossible to keep their feet still, as the cast gave a sneak peak of the show.
Students were taken back to the 1950s as they performed “Shakin it at the High School Hop.”
Nik said it was fantastic to work with such a “talented, energetic and committed group of students”.
“Grease takes place during a time in history when rock and roll became the soundtrack for young people pushing boundaries and fighting for freedom,” Nik said.
“Grease explores a range of themes that are still relevant for teenagers today. It’s about love, friendship, rebellion, identity and peer pressure.
“This show is particularly poignant for IGS, as it deals with the importance of treating others with respect and dignity, which is reflected in our IGS motto of Unity Through Diversity.”
Principal Shauna Colnan said she couldn’t wait to see the School’s hall transformed into Rydell High.
The show will take place from July 24 to 27.
