High School Musical JR.

All students have a dream: they aspire to be stars. Our mission is to encourage their dreams by offering them a chance to audition for the role of a life time. The series of events in this production take place in a high school – a place that is very familiar and important for all our young participants. After all, they are the heroes of their  own lives. If we inspire at least one child to become an actor, then our mission is accomplished.

Troy Bolton, a basketball player, and Gabriella Montes, an honours student, meet at a new year’s party. They share photos and phone numbers the same evening after celebrating the New Year together.

When the school year begins, it turns out that Gabriella has moved to the same school where Troy attends. Together, they decide to secretly audition for a school musical. Soon, this decision turns their world and their school upside down.

All big things start with a small idea. As a great dreamer and social activist, I decided to stage a musical. Gathered around a team of professionals, we are on our way to achieving our goal. This production is fully licensed, all copyrights from Disney are respected. We bought the license for 7 shows, which we plan to hold in the largest towns of Cyprus. The first show will be held on February 22 at the Markideio theatre in Paphos

Successful Auditions

On September 22, we held a casting for High School Musical. We were impressed by the large numbers of talented children on the island of Cyprus, demonstrating excellent dance and vocal skills. More than 50 children took part in the casting eager to secure a part in the musical.

As a result, the jury, together with a panel of teachers, selected 30 of the most suitable children who will be a part of the show. With just under 4 months of rehearsals, we are ready to bring the coolest musical to the Cyprus stage.
