High School Musical Auditions

We will use auditions for these roles to cast all characters:

 

Troy Bolton

The most popular kid at East High, he is the star of the basketball team who yearns to be more than what people want him to be. Troy discovers his love for music but refuses to admit it. Athletic, attractive, and a true leader. He becomes smitten with Gabriella.

Audition for Troy if you are interested in Troy, Chad, Zeke, Ripper, Coach Bolton, and any of the other male characters (teachers, students, etc.) If you don’t want to sing a solo, you don’t have to do the singing part of the audition.

Ryan Evans

Sharpay's fraternal twin and a self-delusional 'star in the making.' He typically feels the brunt of Sharpay's attacks and lives under her shadow.

Jack Scott

The resident P.A. Announcer for the high school. He is shy and insecure in front of the rest of the kids, but smooth and confident at the mic. Known as the "Velvet Fog of East High."

Sharpay Evans

The egocentric diva star of the school musicals, she is Ryan's older twin and the alpha dog. She thinks being the musical star defines her and clutches the title like her life depends on it, no matter what the cost to others.

Gabriella Montez

The new girl in school. She is trying to blend in and avoid 'labels' at her new school. Eventually becomes Troy's romantic counterpart. Pretty, shy, and smart.

Audition for Gabriella if you are interested in Gabriella, Taylor, Kelsi, Martha, Ms. Tenny and any of the other female characters (teachers, students, etc.) If you don’t want to sing a solo, you don’t have to do the singing part of the audition.

Ms. Darbus

The kooky, eccentric Drama Club teacher. She has her self-absorbed moments but is still devoted to her students. Passionate about the art of theatre.

 

WANT TO AUDITION, BUT DON’T KNOW WHO TO AUDITION FOR? JUST AUDITION FOR TROY or GABRIELLA AND TELL US ON YOUR AUDITION FORM THAT YOU ARE FOR “ANY ROLE


 

AUDITION MATERIAL

Select the character(s) you would like to audition for, and record yourself performing the scenes below. If you would like to be considered for a solo singing role, see the last couple of pages for info.

 

Troy Bolton (See last page for singing audition info)

 

“My parents’ friends are always saying, ‘Your son is the basketball guy. You must be so proud.’ Sometimes I don’t want to be ‘the basketball guy.’ I just want to be, you know, me.”

 

“I can’t believe you guys! Is this what you guys want to hear: Singing means nothing to me! Gabriella means nothing to me! I’ll forget the audition, forget her, and we’ll go get that championship! Everyone happy now?”

ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

 

Ryan Evans (See last page for singing audition info)

 

Is this some kind of sick joke? They didn't even audition! Someone's got to tell that new girl the rules. Rule Number One: Pick the right clique. Two: Act like your clique. Three: Dress for your clique. Four: Know where your clique clicks. And rule number five: Stick to the status quo! They're up to something! We need to save our show from people who don't know the difference between a Tony Award and Tony Hawk. Now come on!”

 

“Everybody loves a good jazz square – It’s a classic. (To Sharpay) And why do we always have to do what you say? Somebody in this room ought to chill out, sister. And it ain’t me. We’ll get the roles we want, we always do. Sharpay, we’ve had the leads every year since birth. If we get it again, great. If not, we’ll still be fabulous.”

 

ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

 

Jack Scott (does not require singing audition)

 

“Yo, welcome back all you crazy Wildcats. This is Jack Scott, the Velvet Fog of East High with the Homeroom 411 bringing you the morning announcements: The callbacks for Juliet and Romeo have been moved up to... tomorrow at 3:00 PM….but, that’s the same time as the Science Decathlon and basketball championship! Yikes! This is Jack(ie) Scott, over and out in 5-4-3-2-and 1!”

 

 

 

 

ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

 

Sharpay Evans (See last page for singing audition info)

 

“So nice of you to show our new classmate around. (to Gabriella) Troy is such a sweetheart, isn’t he? He’s the star of the basketball team, just like I’m the star of the Drama Club. We’re perfect for each other, don’t you think? Are we having lunch together, Troy? Oh, look, the signups for the musical.” (Sharpay signs her name on the sheet and says to Gabriella.) Oh... were you going to sign-up too? I’m so sure we could find something for you. The ugly old Nurse has lots of fun.”

 

Is this some kind of sick joke? They didn't even audition! Someone's got to tell that new girl the rules. Rule Number One: Pick the right clique. Two: Act like your clique. Three: Dress for your clique. Four: Know where your clique clicks. And rule number five: Stick to the status quo! They're up to something! We need to save our show from people who don't know the difference between a Tony Award and Tony Hawk. Now come on!”

 

ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

 

Gabriella Montez (See last page for singing audition info)

 

“At my other school I was ‘the freaky math girl.’ That’s all they thought I was… always pointing at me, whispering behind my back. They made me feel like I was a freak and I hated it. That’s kind of why I want to keep a low profile here, you know, so I can just be me.”

 

“Guess what? I don’t want to do the callbacks, either! Who were we kidding? You’ve got your team, and now I’ve got my team. I’ll do the science Decathalon, you win your championship. It’s where we belong. Go Wildcats!”

 

ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

 

Ms. Darbus (does not require singing audition)

 

(Addressing the class) “But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, who is already sick and pale with that grief, that thou her maid art far more fair than she. (Darbus bangs dong, Sharpay, Ryan and Kelsi applaud.) Thank you…. Thank you very much. Well, once again, they forgot to announce the auditions for the winter musical, Juliet and Romeo, written by our very our Kelsi Neilson. Kelsi, stand up and take a bow. This year, as always, the Drama Club faces a shortage of male participants, so please come in and audition. I'm offering you fun, glamour... and extra credit!”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTu6NDmR6J8&list=PLdIWHSPDDh8AwgdA-bfARYGxruKPlI78D&index=10

 

Lyrics:

We’re soaring, flying

There’s not a star in heaven that we can’t reach

If we’re trying, so we’re breaking free.

You know the world can see us

In a way that’s different from who we are.

Creating space between us ‘til we’re separate hearts.

But your strength, it gives me faith, faith to believe

We’re breaking free!

Soaring, flying

There’s not a star in heaven that we can’t reach

If we’re trying, so we’re breaking free.

Izzy Leslie High School Musical On Stage – song #3 – What Ive Been Looking For

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FdGTScwGYLo&list=PLdIWHSPDDh8AwgdA-bfARYGxruKPlI78D&index=3

 

Lyrics:

It’s hard to believe, that I couldn’t see

you were always there beside me.

Thought I was alone, with no one to hold

But you were always there beside me.

This feeling’s like no other.

I want you to know.

I’ve never had someone who knows me like you do, the way you do.

I’ve never had someone as good for me as you, no one like you.

So lonely before I finally found what I’ve been looking for.
