"High School Musical"takes us back to high school, but with more music! It is the story of the students, and the cliques they survive in, at the fictional East High. Drama Divas, Briainiacs, Skater Dudes, and Jocks all look for their chance to musically shine. Will peer pressure keep them from their dreams? Will Sharpay, heir apparent to the High School Musical crown, connive her way to victory? Can Troy lead the Wildcats to victory in the championship game and still manage to get to musical callbacks? Get the answers to those questions and more while you watch a new generation of Genesians blow the roof off the theatre. Don’t miss this rousing Summer treat!
