With the apparent success of STAGES and Trumpets Playshop's staging of Disney's High School Musical (HSM), producer and director Audie Gemora, teen heartthrob and lead star Sam Concepcion, and the whole cast and staff of the production are very happy to announce that their show is extended until July 22, still at the Meralco Theater.
HSM has been performed to sell-out crowds, reaping critical success, as well. Some celebrities who enjoyed the show were: Martin Nievera, Richard and Lucy Gomez, Iya Villania, Karylle, Jamie Rivera, Reymond Sajor, Raki Vega, Bituin Escalante, Gino Padilla, Dra. Vicki Belo, and staunch supporters of the arts, former President Fidel Ramos and wife Mrs. Ming Ramos, among others.
Concert King Martin Nievera says, "I was blessed and inspired, both as an artist and as a member of the screaming audience. HSM educated my curiosity of what talent, dedication and dreams will be like for the superstars of tomorrow. HSM is a must-see. Awesome!"
Aside from lead star Sam Concepcion, Cheska Ortega (Gabriella Montez), Alex Godinez (Sharpay Evans), PJ Valerio (Ryan Evans), Kakki Teodoro (Taylor McKessie), Seve Ching (Chad Danforth), and 40 other cast members also dish out impressive performances.
Veteran actors Sheila Francisco and Jeff Arcilla provide sensational support to the teens as they play Drama Club moderator Mrs. Darbus and Coach Bolton, respectively.
Memorable spots in the show include "When There Was Me and You," "I Can't Take My Eyes Off You," dance spots "We're All In This Together," "Getcha Head In The Game," "Breaking Free," "Start of Something New," among others.
