Everyone has dreams.  While some dream of being the start of the basketball team or science decathlon, others hope to be the lead in the school musical.

The Background

Disney’s High School Musical Jr is as popular today as it was when the Disney Channel original movie premiered in 2006, when it broke cable network ratings records and it’s soundtrack went to become the best-selling album of the year.  The stage version became the most-licensed new musical in history.

Disney’s High School Musical Jr has 9 named male and 9 named female roles and countless ensemble parts with lots of singing and dancing to showcase everyone’s talent.  The cast can number up to 30 roles. We will be looking to fill the 18 main and adult character roles with 13 to 18 year old male and female cast members and/or past students with proven experience to handle lead roles.
