The Junior Common Room transformed into Rydell High as residents delivered an electrifying performance of Grease: The Musical. The College Play is an annual event on the College calendar, allowing residents to express their creativity and talent across performance, costume and set design, stage management and musical direction. It is coordinated entirely by the student body, with the MCSS Culture Representative (Hannah Lippiatt) acting as the director and key organiser.
The first day was exclusively for Mannixians to see the show for the very first time. On the second day invited alumni and friends to watch as they reminisced back to the days when they too performed in the College Play. The third day was for the wider public and was generally the best run of the team.
“2022’s production of Grease was everything I could have hoped for. From the very first rehearsal, the energy among the cast & crew was incredibly joyous, constructive, and enthusiastic. I cannot thank these people enough. In particular, I would like to thank my fantastic Assistant Director, Sidney White, and Stage Manager, Louis Miller; I simply could not have done it without you guys! Grease was a massive success, with us smashing our ticket sale goals, and some audience members returning for all three nights! This year’s play was a highlight for many Mannixians, and I’m super excited to see Abby reach new heights in 2023” – Hannah Lippiatt (Director)
Through many hours of hard work from many different students involved, this year’s play was a resounding success.
