It's almost graduation day for high school seniors Troy, Gabriella, Sharpay, Chad, Ryan and Taylor -- and the thought of heading off in separate directions after leaving East High has them thinking they need to do something they'll remember forever. Together with the rest of the Wildcats, they stage a spring musical reflecting their hopes and fears about the future and their unforgettable experiences growing up together. Will their final show break them apart or bring them together for the greatest moment in Wildcat history?
All through high school, Tory has been at the top of his game-both on and off the court. But what's next? Suddenly the fin of high school has been replaced by serious life decisions. What happens after the final school bell rings? Is this the end of his basketball career, or just the beginning? Where will he go to college? And most importantly, will he and Gabriella stay together?
Just when Gabriella was getting comfortable being a Wildcat, it's time to graduate and leave it all behind. She's ready to tackle the academic challenges of college, but leaving behind the one place she knows may not be as easy as she would like. With the prom, the musical and college to think about, it's getting harder and harder to find time to be with Troy.
As Drama Club President, there's nothing Ryan loves more than showing off his song and dance. But what happens when the show ends? When the curtain falls on the final musical of Ryan's high school career, will he be able to perform in the real world? Ryan can't help but dream about the next time his name will appear in lights.
Sharpay's always ready to steal the show, and this year is no exception. Prepared to shine and be discovered, she's eager to star in the musical to end all musicals and solidify her future as an entertainment superstar. Will the musical be worthy of a star of her caliber? Will she get her big break? Only time will tell for Miss Sharpay Evans.
It's senior year for the East High Wildcats and naturally Taylor is engrossed in the yearbook. Busy planning all the yearly activities and making sure the yearbook is the best it could ever be, she doesn't have much time for anything else. However, one thing Taylor can find time for is Prom and she's beyond excited for it to say the least! Will Chad ask her to Prom or is he too busy with the state championships?
Basketball is Chad's top priority this year. He wants to say goodbye to East High with a win. Focused on stepping up his game, the last thing Chad's concerned with is prom. Will the Wildcats win the state championship? Will Chad be able to pass on his basketball wisdom to younger players or will the basketball team's unstoppable reputation come to an end?
As resident songwriter for the East High Wildcats, Kelsi is hard at work writing a musical everyone will remember. Kelsi's talent is quieter than most, so it makes it hard for her to stand out in the crowd. Will she get the recognition she deserves for her true talents?
