A rainy day must have...., 14 Oct 2006
My two children had been going on about this for weeks, I finally succumbed to pester power and one rainy afternoon sat down with them to watch it. I have to admit I wasn't expecting to enjoy it. I like a good musical but this to me was more aimed at pre-teens far more than Grease had ever been. However I can say I was very pleasantly surprised. The general stroyline, lifted from the pages of Grease and put into a more modern context was well handled, yes you knew what the outcome was going to be but that didn't detract from the enjoyment of the journey to get there.
The songs are very catchy and I found myself humming them only after hearing them once. The young cast were excellent. All in all a rainy afternoon brightened and a very enjoyable way. I would recommend this to anyone with children as a good way to spend time together and maybe introduce them to the joy of musicals.
