Two smitten teenagers separated by feuding gangs, destined for true love as well as great heartache.  Is it “Romeo and Juliet?”  Is it “West Side Story?” No, it’s “High School Musical!”  Star basketball player, Troy Bolton (Dante Rynone) meets Gabriella Montez (Marissa Fargnoli-Peterson) at a karaoke contest.  Not only does their meeting spark a lasting friendship, but it also reveals a mutual interest in singing and performing.  Much to the dismay of their best friends (Chad Danforth – Patrick Banfield and Taylor McKessie – Zozha TenWolde), the ridicule of basketball coach, Coach Bolton (Nolan Ruocco) and the distrust of drama director, Ms. Darbus (Jordann McKenna), the two teenagers create school-wide chaos when they pursue their newfound interest in the theatre by auditioning for leads in their high school’s winter production of “Juliet and Romeo.”  Resident “drama queen,” Sharpay Evans (Mackenzie Green) and her flamboyant brother Ryan (Jeffrey Allen) lead the charge to halt Troy and Gabriella’s plans and encourage the Brainiacs, the Thespians, the Jocks, and the Skater Dudes to “Stick to the Status Quo”. With rebels like Zeke Baylor (Bailey Olmstead) who loves to shoot hoops AND bake, Martha Cox (Devonn McKenna, who also choreographs the show) whose secret passion is hip-hop, Ripper (Camryn Olmstead) who skateboards by day and plays cello at night, Kelsi Neilson (Jordan Adams), the mousey composer who gains confidence with the help of two new friends, and D.J. Jack Scott (Jake Brown) who provides a frequent play-by-play of the school’s important events, what happens next is worth the price of the ticket. Rest assured the resolution will not parallel the darker sides of “Romeo and Juliet” nor “West Side Story.”  Instead, the inventive students of East High will “Bop to the Top” with the “Start of Something New” and, in the end, prove that “We’re All in this Together.”

“High School Musical” has a large and talented cast, crew, and rock band; and everyone involved is excited about this incredible show.  So, “Get’cha Head in the Game” and hustle to the Aiosa Auditorium to root for the East High Wildcats! We’re “Counting on You” to join in the fun! We promise that you’ll leave with something to cheer about!
