High School Musical

Wednesday 15th to Saturday 18th May 2019

Hertford Theatre, Hertford


It's the first day back at school after the winter break at East High. Basketball team captain Troy discovers that the brainy Gabriella, a girl he met singing karaoke on his ski trip, has just enrolled. They cause an upheaval when they decide to audition for the High School Musical. Brother and sister duo Sharpay and Ryan have starred in every school musical and will do anything to continue. However Troy and Gabriella's alliance might just open the door for others to shine as well.

Full of catchy songs and exciting dance routines, Disney’s ‘High School Musical on Stage!’ explores issues of friendship, first love and acceptance. Suitable for all the family.
