High School Musical returns to the stage

Published 3 March 2009

The New Wimbledon theatre is to host the UK premiere of High School Musical 2 Live On Stage! in August. The new show will tour the UK following the run at the New Wimbledon from 22 August to 5 September.

High School Musical 2 Live On Stage! is the second of the Disney Channel’s popular High School Musical films to be adapted for the stage. The first film was produced as a stage musical in both the US and the UK and enjoyed a successful run at London’s Hammersmith Apollo last summer. This new stage adaptation of the second movie in the trilogy is devised by the same creative team, including director Jeff Calhoun and choreographer Lisa Stevens.  

High School Musical 2 Live On Stage! picks up where the first show left off, centring on the students of East High during their summer break. Troy, Gabriella, Taylor and Chad have found summer jobs at an exclusive country club, but it is not going to be an easy ride as scheming siblings Ryan and Sharpay turn up for a holiday at the same club, and they are out for some fun of their own. As the club prepares for the Midsummer Night’s Talent Show, squabbles, double-crossing and a baseball tournament threaten to stand in the way of their performances and their friendships.

The musical features all the songs from the movie, including What Time Is It?, You Are The Music In Me and Fabulous.

Bill Taylor, CEO of Stage Entertainment UK, which is producing the show, commented: “We are delighted to continue the partnership with our friends at Disney to bring the next part of the High School story to audiences in Britain and Ireland. This tour has been very carefully priced in such a way as to make it accessible for families to enjoy the show together. I’ve never known an audience reaction like that which we experience at High School Musical shows and we look forward to welcoming more people, young and old, for the second instalment.”

No casting has yet been announced for High School Musical 2 Live On Stage!.

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.
