Spokane Civic Theatre Academy to present Disney’s HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL

HSMBANNER_TEMP-01

Spokane Civic Theatre’s Academy will present Disney’s High School Musical as its Summer Academy Musical. Performances run July 22-31, 2016, and are the culmination of a three-week theatre camp for 13-18 year olds.

This audition-only camp brings together Spokane’s talented teenage musical theatre performers to hone their skills, make new friends, and have fun producing a musical.

Auditions for Disney’s High School Musical will be May 23, 24 & 25 at Spokane Civic Theatre. Actors are not required to have previous experience, but should come prepared to sing a verse and chorus of a contemporary song not from this production along with piano sheet music for provided accompanist.

Disney’s High School Musical is directed by Andrew Ware Lewis, with music direction by Drew Olsen, and choreographed by Hannah Farley.

Synopsis:

It’s the first day after winter break at East High. 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, led by Ms. Darbus. 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.

For more information on auditions please keep an eye on our website in the coming weeks: www.spokanecivictheatre.com/audition/
