High Schoolers


The Story...

Disney Channel's smash hit movie musical comes to life on your stage in Disney’s High School Musical JR. Troy, Gabriella and the students of East High must deal with issues of love, friends and family while balancing their classes and extracurricular activities. The show’s infectious, danceable songs are sure to engage performers and audiences alike.


It’s the first day after winter break at East High. The Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians and Skater Dudes all find their cliques. Basketball team captain and resident jock, Troy, discovers that the brainy Gabriella, a girl he met singing karaoke on his ski trip, has just enrolled at East High. The couple causes an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical. Although many students resent the threat posed to the "status quo," Troy and Gabriella’s alliance might just open the door for others to shine as well.

What parents say

My daughter loves going here. She has been going a few years now and does acting classes plus the musicals. The teachers are wonderful, everyone is treated equally, there are no favourites and she has made lots of friends. It is a great place for children to build confidence and help with issues like anxiety. I highly recommend!
