The cast of High School Musical Jr. at Penn Yan Middle School rehearses a number

Disney Channel’s smash hit movie, “High School Musical Jr.” storms the stage at Penn Yan Middle School Feb. 6 & 7 at 7 p.m. and Feb. 8 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for students and seniors.

Troy, Gabriella, and the students of East High must deal with issues of first love, friends, and family while balancing their classes and extra curricular activities.

It’s the first day after winter break at East High. The Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians, and Skater Dudes find their cliques, recount their vacations, and look forward to the new year. Basketball team captain and resident jock Troy discovers that the brainy Gabriella, a girl he met singing karaoke on his ski trip, has just enrolled at East High. They cause an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical, led by Ms. Darbus. 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.

Disney’s High School Musical Jr. is G-rated fun for the whole family, with infectious, danceable songs like “We’re All in This Together,” “Get’cha Head in the Game,” and “Bop to the Top.”
