Rockingham Senior High School students have performed the musical Grease to hundreds of people across several different shows.

A cast of more than 30 students have worked since November to learn the dance routines and songs.

Show director Shelby Kazakoff said putting the show together had been exhilarating and stressful and she was proud of the students.

“It has been great to watch them blossom into performers and see their personal growth as well, that has been the most rewarding part of all this,” she said.

“We have a great team who have helped put this show together, I cannot praise everyone high enough.”

Ms Kazakoff said she had been tossing up between Greace and Annie, but decided Greace was more suited and relatable to the students, with more male lead roles as well as female roles.

Year 12 students Sabrina McCay and Dylan Wilson had the lead roles of Sandy and Danny, and both said they had been nervous and excited to perform.

“We have both been doing drama for ages now. Being with everyone and coming together as a cast has been a great part of this experience,” Sabrina said.

“This is the first performance with a big audience we have done, I was definitely nervous and scared but loved getting my head around the character of Sandy.”

Dylan said he really liked Danny as a character and had been excited to play the male lead role.

“He is very cool and laid-back and that was a lot of fun to portray. I would love to be involved in a performance like this one after graduating school,” he said.
