Last year High School Musical Live On Stage! brought the hugely popular Disney Channel film to the UK stage, with a summer run at the Hammersmith Apollo. Now, the same creative team has set its sights on the second film in the trilogy. High School Musical 2 Live On Stage! premieres at the New Wimbledon theatre prior to a UK tour.
Based on the film and featuring the same score, High School Musical 2 Live On Stage! catches up with the East High students during their summer break from school. Troy, Gabriella, Taylor and Chad all land work at an exclusive country club but it’s not going to be an easy ride as Ryan and Sharpay are vacationing there too and plan on having some fun of their own. As it turns out, their family owns the club, so the scheming siblings make it their mission to stir things up for the friends. The action builds to the country club’s all important Midsummer Night’s Talent Show, but will the Wildcats be ready in time? Will Troy duet with Sharpay or Gabriella? Will Ryan finally realise his sister’s true motives and will squabbles, double-crossing and a baseball tournament stand in the way of their performances and, ultimately, their friendships?
High School Musical 2 Live On Stage! features a soundtrack including What Time Is It?, You Are The Music In Me and Fabulous.
Originally created for television, the High School Musical movies have become chart-topping hits in the UK and US. The third installment in the series premiered in cinemas in 2008.
