Production Review of Grease

Production Review of Grease by Auckland Girls Grammar 


A boy named Danny has fallen in love with a girl named Sandy.Sandy was a good girl,she always had good grades and took school seriously but danny was nothing like that.Danny was doing bad in school and showed less interests towards his grades,His friends were like that too and so judged danny for liking someone (Sandy) who is not like them.

My favourite part was when Danny's friend took Sandy like they were together,I liked that part because it was funny and savage.

I recommend this would be a great show for year 6,7,8 and over because I think they would understand what's happening in the show and know not to take some parts of the show too seriously.

I will give 5 out of 5 stars for the show

Step 2: Firstly you will need to add 1 and ½ cups of flour into the bowl.

Step 3: After adding flour add 40gs of butter.Use your knife to cut this butter in many little pieces and then add it into the bowl.When adding the butter into the bowl rub the little pieces of butter between your fingers so the texture is like breadcrumbs.

Step 4: After rubbing the butter between your fingers add ⅝ of a cup of milk.Firstly make a well in the center of the bowl then pour in the milk slowly and gently.

Step 5: When you have finished adding the milk move on to kneading the mixture.When kneading your mixture it will transform into a batch of dough.

Step 6: When the batch of dough is nice and doughy use your hands and press it down so the dough is shaped in small circles.

Step 7: After making the circles place them on the baking tray and put the baking tray in the oven for 200 degree Celsius for 20 minutes.

Step 8: When your scones are cooked you can now add cream,jam and butter (Optional).This was the traditional way to eat it.

Now you can serve your delicious scones!
