The Main Street Youth Theatre is heading to high school this summer with “Disney’s High School Musical.” Based on the popular Disney movie, this high-energy production features Troy, Gabriella and the students of East High dealing with issues of first love, friends and family while balancing their classes and extracurricular activities.  If you aren’t familiar with the main storyline, basketball team captain and resident jock, Troy, discovers that the brainy Gabriella, a girl he met singing karaoke on his ski trip, has just enrolled at East High. They cause an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical. Although many students resent the threat posed to the “status quo,” Troy and Gabriella’s alliance might just open the door for others to shine as well.

The show features a cast of 25 with six local high schools being represented and stars Daniel Harrington as Troy Bolton, Harper Krimm as Gabrielle Montez, Elliott Lentz as Sharpay Evans, Luke Herman as Ryan Evans and so many more. “This show embodies the fun, contemporary energy featured in the movie, and is something that the whole family can enjoy,” MSYT Board President Cinda Seamon notes.

The show’s production team includes Hilton Head Christian Academy’s Theater Director Michelle McElroy (Director), Cynthia Cullen (Music Director), Jamal Edwards (Choreographer) and Logan Naddy (Stage Manager).  “We couldn’t be more excited to have this production team together again,” Seamon adds. “Their professionalism and collective creative vision ensure this will be nothing short of spectacular!” Director Michelle McElroy is clearly excited as well, ““We’re All in This Together” is one of the well-known songs from the show, but it really rings true for us!  It’s great seeing the theater kids from different schools come together to create something special in the summer. I’m honored to once again be a part of it!”

There will be 10 performances total; June 19th thru June 30th; evening performances at 7pm and 2pm matinees on Saturday & Sunday (6/23 & 6/30).

Tickets are only $19 for adults and $12 for students and are available online via MSYT.org or by calling the box office at 843-689-6246.
