The story centers around the high school jock, Troy Bolton, played by senior Hudson Pendleton, and his love interest, Gabriella Montez, played by sophomore Terra Sloane. They spark a relationship that involves a love of music and decide to audition together for the school musical, but they are thwarted by some of their friends and by the school’s current leading lady, Sharpay, played by senior Sarah Kelly, and Sharpay’s brother Ryan, played by junior Ethan Brown.
