We’re all in this together… again! The wildly successful Disney’s High School Musical team is back with another adventure for everyone’s favorite Wildcats. Disney’s High School Musical 2 debuted on the Disney Channel to a record-breaking audience of 17.3 million viewers.
On the last day of junior year, the East High gang can’t wait to get the summer started – they’re ready for summer jobs, money for college and to have fun. To that end, Troy gets them all jobs at Lava Springs Country Club – which happens to be owned by popular girl, Sharpay’s, father. While Sharpay schemes to steal Troy’s heart from Gabriella, her brother, Ryan, hopes to win the Star Dazzle Award. Everything comes to a head at the talent show, where the group has to remember their motto: “All for one, and one for all.”
PPT’s production of High School Musical 2 opens at the Meroney Theater next Thursday night. Director and choreographer Gwen Matthews once again partners with musical director Laurie Klaus on this all-ages show that will be an experience your family will never forget!
