Sharpay's girls and jock during rehearsals for High School Musical PICTURE: PAT MOORE
Tickets are on sale for the upcoming joint theatrical production between St Kieran’s College and Loreto Secondary School, ‘High School Musical’, which gets underway here next week.
It’s based on the 2006 drama/television film directed originally by Kenny Ortega. The story is about Troy Bolton, the star athlete at a small-town high school, who falls for nerdy beauty Gabriella Montez at a holiday party, before the school term begins.
A very successful day for our TY students - singing and dancing at the Town Hall - along with the boys from St Kieran's College - at the launch of High School Musical. The students were delighted to be joined today by the Kilkenny Rose who dropped by to show her support. pic.twitter.com/OwlH8BdtvL— Loreto (@LoretoKilkenny) April 27, 2018
