Staff report

     The Monticello High School Drama Department presents Disney's High School Musical April 1-3.

     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 that is being 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.

     Performances will be Thursday, April 1, 7 p.m. (virtual only); Friday, April 2, 7 p.m. (virtual or live); and Saturday, April 3, 7 p.m. (virtual or live). Admission is $5 per adult, $4 for students and senior citizens. Ages 5 and under are admitted free.

     Seating will be limited, so pre-order and pick up tickets by contacting Kim Ralston in the high school office. Any individual who will need a seat will require a ticket (even if they will have free admittance). Admittance without a ticket will not be permitted and tickets will not be sold at the gate.
