Our students will focus on character work, acting through singing, and scene basics while putting on the productions of "High School Musical" 

There will be a balanced emphasis on music, acting, and dance. This program nurtures rehearsal and performance principles, requiring commitment, teamwork, and collaboration within diverse creative processes. 

**The first class will consist of an audition portion! No previous preparation is needed, as it will all be taught in class.  



Gabriella Montez : the new student who’s struggling to find her place at East High. She’s a Renaissance woman who doesn’t fully identify with any of the cliques, and so she’s taking her time – and realizing her confidence – along the way. 

Troy Bolton:  the most popular student at East High and the star of the basketball team who yearns to be more than what others – especially his dad, Coach Bolton – want him to be.

Sharpay Evans: the dramatic and self- centered star of the school musicals.

Ryan Evans: Sharpay’s fraternal twin and, like her, he lives to sing, dance, and get loads of attention.

Kelsi Nielsen: the neo-feminist writer- composer of the winter musical, Juliet and Romeo, who possesses a shy demeanor but no tolerance for the egocentric likes of Sharpay.

Chad Danforth: one of Troy’s best friends and s a sports fanatic. 

Zeke Baylor: Troy’s other best buddy; a basketball player with a sweet side.

Taylor McKessie: the very put-together president of the Science Club.

Ms. Darbus: East High’s eccentric drama teacher.

Coach Bolton: The stern basketball coach and Troy’s sometimes overbearing dad. 

Martha Cox: a proud member of the Science Club, possesses a private passion for break dancing.

The BRAINIACS: the smartest girls and boys in school


The THESPIANS are the drama lovers
