All slicked up for show


These Queenstown teens are getting all greased up for their role as the T-Birds in Wakatipu High’s musical Grease. 

The boys are part of a 40-strong cast, plus band and back stage crew, who are busy rehearsing for the stage adaptation of the hit movie, which opens at the Memorial Hall this coming Tuesday for four nights. 

Lead actor 17-year-old Max Gunn – who also had the main roll in Arrowtown’s Rock and Roll Suicide – plays Danny Zuko. 

Drama teacher Kate Moetaua says there’s a “real team effort” with students, parents and teachers helping to pull it all together. 

“There’s some amazing talent. The show’s going to be great,” she says. 

Tickets are on sale at the school office.
