We managed to get a good seat near the front where we could get a clear view of the stage and also Grace.
The story goes...
"It's a comedic romp through the roaring 1920s in New York, where Millie and her flapper friends hang out in the Priscilla Hotel (a boarding house for young ladies) and unbeknownst to them, are in frequent danger of being sold into white slavery in Hong Kong by their house mother Mrs Meers! "
Because the school is all girls, the guys were played by girls as well. I have to say the girls played the guy parts very convincingly! At times I forgot they were actually girls!
Grace's friend Sophie was in the play, playing one of two Asian henchmen. They were pretty funny, speaking in Cantonese with English subtitles on the projector screen (although I'm sure I heard a little bit of Mandarin along the way!).
The singing was also quite good too! They sounded professional at such a young age!
I'd have to say my favourite scene though was the elevator scene, when the two women jumped into the lift and two people standing on either side of the lift held signs saying
"First Floor", then
"Second Floor", then
"Third Floor" etc
as cheesy music played. It was pretty funny!
Another was the Speak Easy Dancers who did this really funny dance!
Oh and finally, I have to say the music was well done!
Overall I enjoyed the production. Well done to everyone who put it together!
