High School Announces HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2 Cast!

“WHAT TIME IS IT?!?!” Time to reveal Highlands High School's 

CAST of Disney’s High School Musical 2: On Stage! 


A sincere congratulations and round of applause to every student that had the courage and motivation to audition for this year’s musical production! We are beyond honored and excited to celebrate the anniversary of the 35th consecutive musical at Highlands High School! It is very surreal how quickly 10 years have flown by. Our first High School Musical production at Highlands premiered in 2012 as the 25th musical.


The judges were extremely pleased with everyone’s level of professionalism and enthusiasm, especially since we are returning to a "sense of normalcy". In-person auditions incorporating live singing, choreography, and acting were all reinstated in a safe manner, while once again following the district’s safety protocols. Thank you, HHS Cast of 2022, for showcasing your passion, dedication, and musical talent. The caliber of music and theatrical “Disney Magic” this show requires is going to be life-changing and memorable for you as well as our district and community!


This production marks my 12th year as your HHS Musical Director. It is extremely gratifying to have had the opportunity to spark such an interest in musical theater with so many talented teenagers! To the HHS Cast and Graduating Class of 2022, thank you for the lifetime of memories we are about to create. Each one of you are a blessing, and our district and community will continue to love and support you all. It is an honor and a privilege having the opportunity to be a part of your music education experience. I wish you all the best of luck in all your future endeavors during musical season and thank you for being "golden stars”!


Please save the dates for these upcoming events!

Musical description from


We're all in this together… again! The wildly successful Disney's High School Musical team is back with another adventure for everyone's favorite Wildcats. Disney's High School Musical 2 debuted on the Disney Channel to a record-breaking audience of 17.3 million viewers. The stage version debuted at Atlanta's Theatre of the Stars and has subsequently been released for licensed productions at hundreds of eager venues worldwide.


On the last day of junior year, the East High gang can't wait to get the summer started – they're ready for summer jobs, money for college and to have fun. To that end, Troy gets them all jobs at Lava Springs Country Club – which happens to be owned by popular girl, Sharpay's, father! While Sharpay schemes to steal Troy's heart from Gabriella, her brother, Ryan, hopes to win the Star Dazzle Award. Everything comes to a head at the talent show, where the group has to remember their motto: "All for one, and one for all."


Disney's High School Musical 2 features rockin' songs, action-packed dance numbers and ample opportunities to highlight a strong ensemble. With MTI Theatrical Resources available, Disney's High School Musical 2 is an ideal choice for schools and other groups that are working with young actors.
