Disney’s phenomenally successful made-for-TV movie comes to your stage! Disney Channel's smash hit movie musical ‘High School Musical’ comes to life on our stage, complete with all the songs from the film! Our production of ‘High School Musical’ takes to the stage on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings – 22nd, 23rd, and 24th of November. All involved have put a huge effort into preparing for these performances and their efforts were rewarded with full houses.
2007's musical at Newbridge College is the new stage version of the made for TV movie “High School Musical.” The musical opens with High School Jock and basketball star Troy Bolton and brainy Gabriella discovering a shared love for singing. This subsequently leads to both leads doing the unthinkable by breaking out of their cliques and auditioning for the School musical. Can their friends Chad and Taylor do their best to dissuade them or can Sharpay and Ryan, the ruling school play stars, ensure in no uncertain terms that everyone else stays out of their way.
Set around the auditions and call backs for a musical, Newbridge College’s performance of “High School Musical” is a highly energetic extravaganza from start to finish with much loved song numbers throughout the show, including the crowd pleasing ‘Breaking free’ and the highly energetic ‘Bop to the Top’ and ‘Stick to the status Quo.’
The cast comprises a large group of talented 1st, 2nd, TY and 5th year students who have all worked extremely hard to put on this thoroughly enjoyable show. Cast members include Matt Rafter, Laura Mannix, Louise Farrell and Jack McKenna.
Staff members who must be thanked and congratulated for their dedication to the play are, Alison Bradshaw – Director, Margaret O’Brien – Musical Director and Ger Doyle – Producer.
