Production Camp: Disney’s High School Musical 2

This summer we will be producing Disney’s High School Musical 2 with rising 7th-12th grade students, and 2024 grads. 

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. 

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.”

AUDITIONS

This production is audition only, meaning your child must audition to be cast and we will select those we feel will be the best fit for the production. Auditioning does not guarantee placement in the cast.

  • Auditions will be Thursday, June 20 at 4:00 pm or 6:00 pm
  • Callbacks will be on on Saturday, June 22 
  • PLEASE NOTE: Due to the director being in a professional production at the same time we originally scheduled auditions, we may be moving the audition dates. We will update this information very soon!
  • If you will be out of town during auditions, please contact us in advance, so we can arrange another audition time for you.  You can call (405) 397-1824 or email Mica Harkey at mica@artworksacademy.com.  
  • Please sign your child up to audition on Thursday, June 20 at 4:00 or 6:00 pm
  • Those auditioning should prepare one song from a musical, which reflects the style of the show. It should be 16-32 bars in length.  We will not have an accompanist for this audition, so students will need to bring recorded accompaniment on a phone or tablet.  
  • They should also come prepared for a dance audition.  The dance will be taught to them at auditions and they will dance in small groups for the audition portion.
  • Those who audition for Disney’s High School Musical 2  may be called back to read and sing for specific roles.  Callbacks will be on Saturday, June 22

Again, auditioning does NOT guarantee you will be cast in the show. There are limited roles for this production.

HOW TO SIGN UP FOR AUDITIONS

  • As stated above, you will need to select a time and sign your child up to audition.  If your child is also planning to audition for Musical Theatre Company, please sign up for both auditions.  
  • They will use the same song to audition for both and do not need to audition twice, but we need to know who is auditioning for each.  If they plan to audition at 6:00 pm, for instance, please register for the MTC audition and Disney’s High School Musical 2. audition that are scheduled for 6:00 pm (if they plan to audition for both).
