Summer turns up the heat on our favourite characters and ups the ante on the romance — and the rivalry!
All the gang are working at a country club founded by Ryan and Sharpay’s family! And with the club’s annual talent show right around the corner, Sharpay’s competitive instincts are sizzling. She dumps Ryan as her singing partner and starts wooing Troy to join her on stage instead. Gabriella is less than thrilled that Troy has agreed to sing with Sharpay. How could he do that to her? Things are heating up on the lawns of high society. Will Troy and Gabriella realize that they are meant to be? Or is it already too late for them to sing one last song together?
Featuring hit numbers ‘What time is it?’, ‘You are the music in me’, ‘I don’t dance’, ‘Bet on it’ — and many more – this is irresistible family entertainment!
