RMTC’s GREASE is highly entertaining, engrossing and exhilarating!
REVIEW BY STEVE COOKE
What a thrill to be among a sell-out audience in the revitalised Champness Hall for the opening night of RMTC’s [Rochdale Musical Theatre Company] magnificent production of GREASE.
Full disclosure – I thought I didn’t like musicals! I am now converted!
The whole experience was highly entertaining, engrossing and exhilarating.
The stunning cast, wonderful production team and superb [live] musicians pulled off a never to be forgotten show.
One excited audience member was heard to exclaim on hitting the cold night air on Drake Street ‘well that were bloody great’.
We were transported back to the 1950s with the timeless story of the Pink Ladies and T-Birds, and the romance between Danny and Sandy. The show-stopping hits kept coming "Summer Nights", "Greased Lightnin'", and "You're The One That I Want" all bringing rapturous applause, fully deserved by this amazingly talented cast.
The audience spanned the generations and included Grease fans in brilliantly created fancy dress.
At the end of the show the whole audience rose as one applauding and whooping.
Wow! What night – can’t wait for the next one!
