Northwestern: ‘High School Musical’

Thursday, February 22, 2018 by The Press in Focus

Northwestern Lehigh High School presents “High School Musical” with music and lyrics by Matthew Gerrard, Robbie Nevil, Ray and Greg Cham, Drew Seeley, Randy Petersen, Kevin Quinn, Andy Dodd, Adam Watts, Bryan Louiselle, David N. Lawrence, Faye Greenberg and Jamie Houston. The book is by David Simpatico. It’s based on the 2006 Disney Channel movie of the same title.

The show is at 7 p.m. March 1, 2, 3 and 2 p.m. March 4, auditorium, Northwestern Lehigh Middle School, 6636 Northwest Road, New Tripoli.

Bill Mutimer, co-chair of the Northampton Community College Theater Department Co-Chair, directs, assisted by choreographer Tina Williams and music director Elizabeth Marsh-Gilkeson.

Basketball team captain and resident jock, Troy, brainy Gabriella, and the students of East High deal with first love, friends, family, classes and extracurricular activities just after winter break. As Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians and Skater Dudes return to their cliques, the “status quo” is upset when Troy and Gabriella decide to audition for the high school musical. Will their alliance open the door for others to shine as well?

Featured songs include “Start of Something New,” “Get’cha Head in the Game, “What I’ve Been Looking For,” “We’re All in This Together” and “I Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You.”
