Kidz Act Up


Review by Kathy Carpenter


June 30, 2023 (La Mesa) - Transport yourself to another time and place as the Visionary Dance Theatre, in collaboration with Kidz Act Up, brings the timeless musical "Grease" to life. Under the skillful direction and choreography of Sharla Mandere, this production takes us back to the vibrant era of the 1950s, a bygone era that stands 70 years in the past. The world was vastly different then, and today's youth may struggle to grasp the realities of that time. However, "Grease" remains a classic that many of us grew up with, but for the younger generation, it offers a window into a fascinating period. Successfully capturing the essence and attitude of that era on stage is truly an accomplishment in itself.
