Disney’s High School Musical is an inspirationalstory fighting against stereotypes of a typical high school. The story revolvesaround Gabriella Montez, a new student at East High who is labeled as a nerd ather old school, and Troy Bolton, East High’s basketball star and schoolheartthrob. They meet at a New Year’s party where they were paired in a karaokesinging contest.

When they find themselves together in a class, Gabriella andTroy audition for their high school’s upcoming theatrical production, Juliet and Romeo. Friends of the two find out about their intention but they advicethem to "stick to the status quo."

Adding to all the confusion are the twins Sharpay and RyanEvans who are obsessed with becoming theater actors. They will do anything toprevent the "jock" and the "nerd" from ruining their moment in the spotlight.
