The Beck Center for the Arts has announced the third production of its 2021-2022 youth theater season. The 73rd season continues with the beloved musical that started it all for so many musical theater fans.

Disney’s High School Musical with book written by David Simpatico, songs by Gerrard Robbie, Nevil Ray Cham, Andrew Seeley, Randy Petersen, Kevin Quinn, Adam Watts, Jamie Houston, Andy Dodd, with music adapted, arranged and produced by Bryan Louiselle, is based on the Disney Channel Original Movie, written by Peter Barsocchini, from March 18 to March 27, 2022, at the Senney Theater.

Disney’s High School Musical, is directed by Patrick Ciamacco, with musical direction by Anthony Trifiletti and choreography by Katie Gibson.

Mr. Ciamacco says, “The play reminds me of the struggles and excitement of high school, a place where you are challenged to figure out who they are and where they fit in. Sometimes we feel lost or out of place, and find ourselves yearning to try something new. This show shows that you can be brave enough to stand up to criticism and break free from the status quo. When this happens and people come together for a common purpose, tremendous strength and unity develops within diversity.

This production has a student matinee on Thursday, March 24 at 10:00 a.m. EST and performances open to the public with a curtain at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays, March 18 and 25, Saturdays, March 19 and 26, and 3:00 matinees on Sundays March 20 and 27, 2022.
