High School Musical Auditions, Mon. & Tues., Nov. 27 & 28

Auditions for Disney's High School Musical will be Monday and Tuesday, November 27 and 28 at 4:15 p.m. in the high school auditorium. You don't have to be a theatre student to participate.

Students should prepare a brief musical number that best shows off his or her voice. An accompanist will be provided for those with sheet music, and a CD player with an aux cord will also be available. You can audition acapella, but that won't show that you can match pitch and sing with music. Typically, students that audition by singing acapella won't be cast in lead roles. There will also be a movement audition and some students will be asked to read scenes from the script.

Performances will be February 1-4, 2018. Musical rehearsals will be in December before the Christmas holidays. Choreography rehearsals will be December 17-20 (during the Christmas holidays). Blocking rehearsals begin January 2.

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 shy transfer student who excels in mathematics and science. Together, they try out for the lead parts in their high school musical, and this causes division among all the school's students. 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". High school diva Sharpay Evans will do anything not only to sabotage the friendship and romance between Troy and Gabriella, but also to get a lead in the school musical. In order to do this, she is assisted by her twin brother Ryan, who also wants a lead in the school musical.
