It's showtime! Curtain-up on High School Musical

The curtain has been raised on this year’s feel-good school production, High School Musical, with tickets completely sold out for its four-night run - and a mention in the Express & Star.

Around 100 students are involved in the musical, which features a host of uplifting songs, including Start of Something New, Breaking Free, What I've Been Looking For and We’re All In This Together.

Students from Highfields and neighbouring Penn Fields School have been rehearsing every Thursday evening and Saturday morning for months in preparation for the show, which runs until Saturday. (4)

The musical follows the story of two high school juniors from different cliques - basketball team captain, Troy Bolton, and shy straight-A student, Gabriella Montez - who dream of showcasing their singing talents.

It became a global phenomenon thanks to the original film version featuring Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens.

Sharon Bishop, Head of Performance, said: “We are so excited that it’s showtime after months of rehearsals.

“The students have worked incredibly hard and their effort, commitment and dedication has paid off because the opening night was fantastic. We are very proud of what they have achieved and can’t wait for the upcoming shows."
