Disney’s High School Musical

It is with deep regret that the Summer Musical “High School Musical” is cancelled for the summer of 2020. Given Covid -19 there is just no way to safely proceed. 

We are planning to do the show in the summer of 2021. We will extend the age range for the show so graduating seniors this year will be able to participate next year. 

We are working on providing some online dance and monologue workshops throughout the summer. Information will be emailed and posted on the JTC website and Facebook page as opportunities become available. Also look at the opportunities through the Children’s Theatre Company, Children’s Fantasy Theatre, Chanhassen Dinner Theatre, and Stages Theatre by visiting their Facebook pages.  

Audition Form

Please click the link to complete the High School Musical audition form.


Monday-Friday, starting June 15-July 29 from 8:30am -12:00pm in the Kennedy High School Auditorium. No rehearsal July 2 and 3. Open for performers entering 6th grade through graduating seniors. Tech crew will come to the first rehearsal (June 15) and then will begin rehearsing daily beginning July 6.

COVID 19 Provision 

In the event life doesn’t begin again for summer camps until July 1, we still intend to go ahead with the show. Rehearsal would just be more intense. We need theatre and the joy it brings, so we will make it work! 

Performances: July 29, 30, 31, and August 1.


$195 for performers; $140 for orchestra and tech crew. Scholarships are available! We do not want the cost of the show to prevent ANYONE who is otherwise eligible from participating. Because of the uncertainty of “Stay At Home” orders and social distancing mandates, we will collect tuition CHECKS at auditions which will NOT be cashed until the first day of rehearsal.


HSM’s pit orchestra has 4 players: drums, bass, guitar and keyboard. If you are interested in the pit orchestra, please email Jamie Schmidt jschmidt3@isd271.org.
