Genèse: Based on the Disney Channel’s 2006 TV musical, a stage version had been released for amateur productions in the USA from August 2006 onwards and became an instant success in summer camps and school and college productions. A professional company started a hugely successful year-long American tour from August 2007. Meantime amateur production rights had been released in the UK and from mid-2007 onwards the show proved to be equally popular with young British audiences. In January 2008 it was decided to launch a professional UK tour, which would occasionally find itself visiting a city where a rival amateur version was on offer. It mattered not – since every performance seemed to be a total sell-out. This was such a box office phenomenon that a decision was made to open a second production in London to run through the summer holidays. Following the release of a sequel movie, a stage version, “High School Musical 2” undertook a UK regional tour in 2009 – but although both shows had received worldwide productions, the phenomenon gradually seemed to run out of steam in the UK. However, during its time it played to huge audiences, packed many theatres, and made a great deal of money.
Résumé: Troy is the High School’s “jock”, star of the basketball team, and his Dad is the coach. Gabriella is the new brainy maths student who met Troy whilst singing karaoke during holidays. Now she has joined East High, they would like to take their romance further. And what better way to do this than for both of them to audition for the leading roles in the school’s musical version of “Romeo and Juliet” directed by cranky drama mistress, Ms Darbus? But problems arise. The auditions coincide with the big basketball match! And there is rivalry from Sharpay, the bitchy queen-bee of the drama group aided by her camp twin brother, Ryan. The two camps – the sporty ones and the theatre ones – are just as opposed as the Montagues and Capulets – but this time, of course, there is a happy ending and love wins out.
