Fresh from its sell-out performances in Johannesburg to “wild” reviews, High School Musical – the stage production of Disney’s smash-hit film of the same name – will soon be in Durban at the Playhouse Theatre, and it’s time to get your ‘head in the game’!
The musical production is a fun, teenage love story featuring basketball “jock” Troy Bolton and “brainiac” Gabriella Montez who meet on vacation at a ski resort while singing in a karaoke competition.
When the two end up at the same High School, they must navigate the expectations of their friends, teachers and parents while exploring their love of singing, and each other! Can they out-perform thespian stalwarts and leads of the drama club, Sharpay and Ryan, to become the stars of their high school’s musical, while not letting everyone down around them?
This will be the 37th production for acclaimed Producer/Director Nick Jourdan, who has been responsible for bringing ‘The Adams Family’, ‘Spamalot’ and last year’s smash-hit show ‘Sister Act’ to the Playhouse Theatre, to name a few.
Nick has also been responsible for developing talent such as Singer-Songwriter Connell Cruise, who recently landed a US record deal; Carmen Pretorius and Samantha Peo, the two leads in the recent international touring production of ‘Chicago’ and Jonathan Rouxmouth, who currently plays the Phantom in the international production of ‘The Phantom of the Opera’.
The young cast and crew of High School Musical boast a superior level of talent and deliver a ball-bouncing, toe-tapping, heart-warming performance that will entertain audiences of all ages.
The production leads, Shannon Howard (as Gabriella Montez) and Joshua Randall (as Troy Bolton), head up this stellar cast which comes complete with interfering friends, presidents of the drama club, an over-the-top drama teacher, a stern basketball coach and an exciting, show stopping, basketball routine.
Don’t miss this feel-good experience and the chance to support this cast who have worked long and tirelessly to bring Durban audiences a professional and delightful show!
