Electrifying performance at Abbeywood School By Rachel Land, English teacher at ACS


ith a sensational ensemble and band to match, ‘Grease’ certainly electrified Abbeywood Community School (ACS)! The world famous musical follows rebellious teenager Danny Zuko (Jay) and sweet Sandy Dombrowski (Emily) as their relationship struggles to deal with the peer pressures of Rydell High. From the moment the cast burst onto the stage for ‘Grease is the Word’, the audience seemed utterly enthralled.

On behalf of all the students and the whole of ACS, THANK YOU! Wow, ACS, you proved that Grease truly is the word.
