Disney's High School Musical February 1-4, 2018

Over 100 students will participate in the Temple High School production of Disney's High School Musical  Thursday-Saturday, February 1-3, at 8 p.m., with a Sunday matinee on February 4 at 2 p.m. General admission tickets are available from students involved in the production. Reserved seat tickets are only available online and include the first six rows of the two center sections. General admission tickets are also available online. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door, and $20 for reserved seats.

ONLINE TICKET SALES — $10 General Admission and $20 Reserved Seats are available on the website. Online sales end 5 hours before each performance. You will be emailed a receipt, which you must show (either on paper or on your phone) at the ticket table to gain admission. There is a 50¢ convenience charge per ticket.

     It's the first day after winter break for the East High Wildcats. The Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians and Skater Dudes find their cliques, recount their vacations and look forward to the new year.
     Basketball team captain and resident jock, Troy (Chris Hitt), discovers that the brainy Gabriella (Adara Felix), 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.
     Jealous diva Sharpay Evans (Sierra Amalbert), with her twin brother Ryan (Alante Anderson), conspire to squelch the new couple's chances.
     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" while also meeting their existing obligations to the basketball team and the academic decathlon.
     Musical selections include "We're All in This Together," "Getcha Head in the Game," "What I've Been Looking For" and more.
