This Emmy Award-winning musical phenomenon brings the classic tale of Romeo & Juliet to life with a modern spin. In addition to the timeless theme of love against the odds, the characters are faced with contemporary struggles of high school teens today: peer pressure, rivalries, friendships, and finding yourself. At the center of the story are Troy Bolton, captain of the basketball team on the verge of a championship, and Gabriella Montez, a science brainiac who just transferred to the school. Both students struggle against conforming to their prescribed social cliques and decide to audition for the school play together. The seemingly innocent act sends ripples of change throughout East High as students from different social groups break their own status quos to pursue individual interests. Since its premier in January 2006, High School Musical has garnered worldwide praise, numerous awards, including Billboard's Soundtrack Album of the Year (2006), and two equally popular sequels. The stage production at Wolf Trap features all the favorite characters and songs, with two brand new numbers and an electrifying live band.
