Troy is the star of the basketball team. The big game is coming up but Troy discovers that he enjoys singing, especially with his new friend Gabriella. They'd like to sing together in the High School Musical, but Troy is afraid of how his teammates and his father/coach will react. Gabriella is a "brain" who would rather read than party. She also likes to sing, especially with Troy. After some false starts, the kids at the school decide that friendship means supporting friends in what they want to do rather than imposing the strict limits of the group culture.
Disney's smash hit musical, popular with children 6 - 14, was designed to help combat the power of peer pressure. High School Musical has a lot to say about respect, caring, friendship, and the importance of being your own person. It teaches the value of following your own dream and that kids from different cliques can become friends and work together. Children love the music in this variation, with a happy ending, on the Romeo and Juliet theme. The dance numbers are well choreographed and well performed.
