Description:

Disney Channel's smash hit movie musical comes to life on your stage! Troy, Gabriella and the students of East High must deal with issues of first love, friends and family while balancing their classes and extracurricular 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 that is being 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.

WHAT TO BRING TO AUDITIONS:
Lots of enthusiasm and a smile!
Arrive with the few documents that you will print.  Auditioning is like a job interview.  You don’t need to wear a suit, but don’t wear shorts and flip flops.
Attach a 5X7 headshot to the back of the costume form. Please use paper clips instead of staples. 
Prepare a 60-second song in the style of the show for which you’re auditioning.  Your musical accompaniment should be without vocals. Also prepare a 30 second to one-minute monologue.
