Disney Channel’s movie musical comes to life on the YMCA Theatre as Troy, Gabriella, and the students of East High deal with issues of first love, friends, and family while balancing their classes and extra curricular activities.

YMCA productions are looking for a large cast to bring the show to life.

“We’re so excited to be staging High School Musical. We’re really excited to meet lots of Scarborough’s young performers – whether or not they’ve taken part in a YMCA Production before – to help us bring this brilliant show to life”, said productions director James Aconley.
