High School Musical
Yanney Heritage Park – Cope Amphitheatre
2020 11th Street • Kearney, Nebraska
Disney’s smash hit movie musical comes to life onstage at Yanney Park! It’s the irresistible story of two teenagers — Troy Bolton, super-popular captain of the basketball team, and Gabriella Montez, super-smart transfer student and a genius in science class — who try to navigate the tricky currents of peer pressure to follow their dream and score the leads in the big school show. 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. This high-spirited production will feature all of your favorite characters and songs in a story of friendship, first love and acceptance. High School Musical is sure to be fun for the whole family!
