Milford Haven School’s Drama Club have been working tirelessly over the past few weeks to bring you a brilliant performance of High School Musical On Stage. Since their show-stopping performance of Grease in 2019 and Our House in 2022 they have been waiting to get back on stage to entertain you. They have taken over today’s blog where you will meet the very talented cast, hear from the director and find out how you can purchase tickets to next weeks unmissable performances.

This year’s production is set to be incredible! With the amount of time and effort poured into it by our dedicated and hard working cast, I can guarantee that audiences of all ages will enjoy every second! 

Staff have been working with our biggest cast to date and the commitment given by all has been amazing. I feel really lucky to be a part of it!

High School Musical: On Stage
Disney’s High School Musical on Stage! centres on the blossoming relationship between Troy, a high school jock, and Gabriella, the new smart girl at school.  They meet on a family vacation and become attracted to each other while singing in a karaoke competition.  Rediscovering each other at school, their relationship and their surprise decision to audition together for the school show are thwarted by the school’s current leading lady, Sharpay, and Troy and Gabriella’s well-meaning friends. 

Finally, Gabriella and Troy find a way to be themselves and are rewarded with the lead roles in the school show. Full of catchy songs and exciting dance routines, Disney’s High School Musical on Stage! explores issues of friendship, first love, and acceptance. Disney’s High School Musical is fun for the whole family. Its large cast size and upbeat numbers.
