She says about the production itself: “The wildly successful Disney’s High School Musical team is back with another adventure for everyone’s favorite Wildcats. Disney’s High School Musical 2 debuted on the Disney Channel to a record-breaking audience of 17.3 million viewers. The stage version debuted at Atlanta’s Theatre of the Stars and has subsequently been released for licensed productions at hundreds of eager venues worldwide. On the last day of junior year, the East High gang can’t wait to get the summer started – they’re ready for summer jobs, money for college and to have fun. To that end, Troy gets them all jobs at Lava Springs Country Club – which happens to be owned by popular girl, Sharpay’s, father. While Sharpay schemes to steal Troy’s heart from Gabriella, her brother, Ryan, hopes to win the Star Dazzle Award. Everything comes to a head at the talent show, where the group has to remember their motto: ‘All for one, and one for all.’”

The musical, she says, features “rockin’ songs, action-packed dance numbers and ample opportunities to highlight a strong ensemble. With MTI Theatrical Resources available, such as a stage manager script and logo T-shirts, Disney’s High School Musical 2 is an ideal choice for schools and other groups that are working with young actors.”
