We're all in this together in Disney Channel's smash hit musical featuring the students of East High. (60 Minute Version for Young Performers)
Disney Channel's smash hit movie musical comes to life on your stage in Disney's High School Musical JR.! Troy, Gabriella, and the students of East High must deal with issues of first love, friends, and family while balancing their classes and extra curricular activities.
It's the first day after winter break at East High. 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 discovers that the brainy Gabriella, a girl he met singing karaoke on his ski trip, has just enrolled at East High. They cause an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical, led by Ms. Darbus. Although many students resent the threat posed to the "status quo," Troy and Gabriella's alliance might just open the door for others to shine as well.
Disney's High School Musical JR. is fun for the whole family. Its large cast size can easily be expanded to accommodate students in many grade levels. With its modern-day school setting, scenery and costumes are easy to come by. Infectious, danceable songs like "We're All in This Together," "Get'cha Head in the Game," and "Bop to the Top" are sure to engage performers and audiences alike.
