GREASE onstage video projection

I helped run a theatre company for a couple of years that developed into a very successful children’s theatre company. GREASE was one of our most popular shows. This video was projected onto an 8’x6′ screen on the House Right wall.

For this vimeo version, I shortened all the slides with no music to 2 seconds (just to give you an idea). On the slides that the performers sang during, I only used the first few seconds/phrases from the movie soundtrack.
