Disney's High School Musical

Based on a Disney Channel Original Movie

Flying Ducks Youth Theatre

11 March to 15 March 2008

All Performances Have Sold Out

A tale about daring to be different, our story starts with Troy, the school basketball star and Gabriella, possibly the cleverest girl around in a very unfamiliar situation. Having been thrown together in a karaoke contest whilst on a New Year’s Holiday they both realise that they have another growing interest – not just in the singing but in each other... So when Gabriella’s mother gets a transfer to the same area as Troy and Gabriella starts at the same High School it looks like our two heroes can re-unite and live happily ever after – or maybe not!

In step their well meaning friends Chad and Taylor and not so well meaning school drama divas: Sharpay and Ryan who are not so keen on the amount of time Troy and Gabriella are spending together rehearsing for their audition in the school musical or the effect it seems to be having on the rest of the school.

Will our two budding stars find a way to overcome the obstacles placed in front of them and make everyone realise that they really are All In This Together?

Fame costs and right here is where you start paying

The Northern Musical Theatre Company

31 March to 5 April 2008

"To dream that you have FAME, denotes unrealized achievements and disappointed aspirations."

But this show is no dream. It is all about aspiration, passion and damned hard work! Remember those famous lines?


Bev Jones and his Northern Musical Theatre Company bring you a musical show full of youthful enthusiasm and talent showcasing hopeful, impressionable students all wanting to graduate from The High School of Performing Arts in the hope of starting out on a career in Acting, Singing, Music or Dance in order to achieve FAME! All under the watchful eyes of their experienced college tutors, who offer advice and words of wisdom to the exuberant, nervous and sometimes naive students. But student life isnt always a song and dance! Personal tragedy can strike, to even the most talented ......

Embrace this production of high energy, professionally choreographed dance routines, invigorating upbeat musical numbers, and leave the theatre singing to one of the most famous numbers ever since it was shown on TV in the eighties! FAME.
