These youngsters from Hipperholme Grammar School will take to the stage tonight to perform the musical Grease.

It will be the second and final night of the hit West End and Broadway show, which is being played out by a cast of around 40 pupils from Year 8 to Year 11 at Brighouse Civic Theatre.

It follows a previous successful production of The Pirates of Penzance in 2010.

The show is produced by Hanni Fisher and Adrienne Settle of the school’s English and drama department.

The music is co-ordinated and directed by choirmaster David Condry and Elizabeth Free of the music department. Hanni said: “We’ve been busily perfecting the songs, the action and the dance routines to make the show the best it can possibly be.

“We’re very excited about this production and it promises to be a spectacular show,” she added.
