Sing-a-Long-a Grease @ The Waterside Theatre, Aylesbury

Hands up anyone who spent Saturday night wearing a paper bag on their head?  Just me and my friend Tricia then?  Oh and about 1000 others at The Waterside Theatre who joined in the fun for Sing-a-long-a Grease!  It’s a fun night where we were all given a party bag with tissue, balloon, chequered flag and popper to use at appropriate times during the film, as well as the bag itself (no we honestly didn't just decide to wear it throughout!).

The evening gives people a chance to dress up and there were some wonderful costumes, from Pink Ladies with pink wigs and jackets and the guys dressed as a T-bird.  The evening begins with the host warming everyone up and holding a competition for the best costumes.  About 30 people took to the stage and first to win a prize was an 8 year-old boy, dressed as Danny and with all the cool moves sorted out.  Two ladies who’d spent some time making eye-catching costumes with rollers in their hair also won prizes as did a brave lady who’d walked through the streets wearing pyjamas, a dressing gown and carrying a teddy bear!

Watching the film again and singing along to the great songs, Hoplessly Devoted, You're the One That I want etc. and joining in with the action is such a enjoyable way to spend an evening.  If you’ve ever been tempted to one of these nights, then go along.  The great thing is you can take your kids as well and enjoy a fun night out as a family and have something to talk about for years to come.

    Thanks, Yvonne. This sounds like great fun. I think I'd prefer to see the show live ... but if the audience sing along in the theatre that upsets me ... so maybe this is the perfect compromise for singalong fun!!
