REVIEW.

Byline: PAUL MARSTON

Grease - Youth Onstage THE OLD REP LAST December this talented company had to cancel their annual pantomime due to a shortage of members.

What a difference a few months make. New recruits came in and they are now taking part in this popular musical.

Making their debuts in the lead roles of Sandy and Danny, Laura Nicholson and Kyle Passmore sparkle. Their love develops at Rydell High School when Danny is leader of the "greasers" and Sandy has to overcome her image as a good girl.

Outstanding performances, too, from Dom Harris (Kenickie) and Sarah Fullwood (Betty Rizzo), and one of the most impressive scenes features Matt Brook as Teen Angel, Philippa Coley (Frenchy) and the girls in Beauty School Dropout.

Another star of the show is the American car built by members of the company for the big song, Greased Lightning.

Grease is directed by Deb Brook with Suzy Bleasdale's choroeography and Andy Johnson's musical direction.

The show ends tonight.
