Basketball team captain and resident jock, Troy, discovers the brainy Gabriella, a girl he met singing karaoke on his ski trip, has just enrolled in East High. The couple cause an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical. Although many students resent the threat posed to the "status quo," Troy and Gabriella's alliance might just open the door for others to shine as well. Playhouse in the Park was honored in 2014 to become the seventh theatre in the country to be a part of The Penguin Project. The project has been wildly successful - with the Artists, the Mentors, the Creative Team, the Families, and the Audiences! The Penguin Project was created by Dr. Andrew Morgan and brings together Artists, who are children and young adults with disabilities, and Peer-Mentors who provide on-stage support. The Penguins will take the stage to perform a modified version of a well-known Broadway musical. For more information or tickets, visit playhousemurray.org.
