High School Musical Opens This Weekend
The Key West High School Drama Club and Key West Theater have teamed up to present Disney’s “High School Musical” live on stage at the Key West Theater at 2pm and 7pm this Saturday, May 20th, and at 7pm on May 21st. The entire cast is made up of students from Key West High School with the production team led by Key West Theater’s Juliet Gray, Phillip Cole White, and Alexandra Zeto. The live show is based on Disney Channel’s smash hit film “High School Musical.” In it, Troy, Gabriella and the students of East High must deal with issues of love, friends and family while balancing their classes and extra-curricular activities.
The plot: It’s the first day after winter break at East High. The Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians and Skater Dudes all find their cliques. 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. The couple causes an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical. 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” runs May 20th at 2pm and 7pm and May 21st at 7pm at the Key West Theater, 512 Eaton Street in Old Town. Tickets are available at www.thekeywesttheater.com or by calling (305) 985-0433.
Disney’s “High School Musical” is presented through a special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI) and is sponsored in part by COL (Ret) Jack Paul, USA & Maxine Makeover.
