Launching Pad’s High School Musical
February 6, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm$5 – $10
Launching Pad Productions, the Ballston Spa Middle School drama club, celebrates its 15th year with a production of Disney’s “High School Musical.”
Troy Bolton (Kyle Camilli), the star athlete at a small-town high school, falls for nerdy beauty Gabriella Montez (Jordan Brand) at a holiday karaoke party. When they return to campus, Troy and Gabriella audition for the upcoming school musical.
Meanwhile, the jealous Sharpay Evans (Payton Phillips) conspires to squelch their chances with her twin brother Ryan (Davide Bazzani). Troy and Gabriella struggle to make it to auditions while also meeting their existing obligations to the basketball team and the academic decathlon.
Directed by teachers Matt Lopez and Joe Shaver, the cast consists of 56 middle school students and another 55 working behind the scenes as part of the crew. The creative crew includes scenic and lighting design by Pat Ferlo, music direction by Elizabeth Sears, tech and sound design by Crispin Catricala, and choreography by Broadway actor Eric Hatch.
Performances will be held in the Ballston Spa High School Auditorium at 220 Ballston Ave. in Ballston Spa. Shows will be 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 5, 2016, and 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 6. Tickets are $5 for students and seniors and $10 for adults.
