Audition Information

Disney Channel's smash hit move 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.

Auditions will be held at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church

2600 West 7th Street

Woodridge, IL 60517

Auditions will include singing, dancing and a cold read. All auditioning are asked to sing 32 bars from a pop musical theatre show (no Sondheim please). You only need to come to one day of the auditions. Callbacks as needed will be Tuesday, February 6, 2024.
