Ingrid and I made it out to Mission tonight to see our niece, Brianna Hardy, star as Frenchy in Heritage Park Secondary School’s production of Grease.
From a fantastic performance of ‘Summer Nights’ to a stunning full cast performance of “Born to Hand Jive” to the memorable “You’re the One That I Want”, it was an amazing evening.
We’ve got to know Mathea (who played Sandy) in the past few weeks and both Mathea and Brianna were first-class. Given the events of the past few weeks having a strong focus can be very difficult, but these two found a way. We’re very proud of both of you.
Our congrats to the full cast and crew including the stellar leadership of Director Beverley Holmes and the Music Direction by Jodi Amaya.
My point tonight is about being the best in whatever you’re doing. These high school students gave it their all tonight. That is all that can be asked. (Come on Canucks…pay attention!!!)
I know our Brookswood Secondary friends also recently put on Grease. We were unable to see it, but have heard great reports as well.
Whether it’s a school play, sports, homework, relationships or our jobs, it’s seemingly very evident when you encounter a group of people working as a team to Be The Best.
Congrats to Brianna, Mathea and the entire HPSS gang tonight. You were.
Shows are running April 21-24 at 8pm – Clarke Theatre, Mission
