With a plot described by the author and numerous critics as a modern adaptation of Romeo & Juliet, High School Musical is a story about two high school juniors from rival cliques: Troy Bolton, captain of the basketball team, and Gabriella Montez, a beautiful and shy transfer student who excels in math and science. Together, they try out for the lead parts in their high school musical, and as a result, divide the school. Despite other students’ attempts to thwart their dreams, Troy and Gabriella resist peer pressure and rivalry, inspiring others along the way not to "stick to the status quo." Sharpay Evans, a drama queen and high school diva will do anything to sabotage the friendship between Troy and Gabriella and also get a lead in the school musical. Can Troy and Gabriella lead their friends to a more open-mind thinking and acceptance of one another? Or will their friends win?
Filled with spectacular songs and energy, Bayside Public School’s version of Disney’s High School Musical Junior will bring the entire community together for family theatre at its best!
