University High School presents "Disney's High School Musical"
The high-energy story of rivals trying out for top roles in the school play is the theme of the 2006 Disney Channel Original Movie High School Musical. A major hit for Disney, it became instantly popular in many forms, including the stage, concerts, ice shows and video games!
Uni's Director of Theater Arts, Ronnie Sperling notes that Disney's High School Musical is our most ambitious production to date. Exciting choreography, a large cast, awesome sets, contemporary costumes, some modern lighting, and a surprise appearance by the Uni High Drumline will combine to make this Disney Channel classic come to life on our Stivelman Theater stage.
The Creative team is led by Sperling and includes choreographer Lindsey Lorenz and music director Kahlil Sabbagh.
The Design team includes sets by John Ong, costumes by Suzanne Scott Wakefield, and lighting by Rob Fritz.
