The North Shore Music Theatre's production of Disney's High School Musical began previews at the Beverly, MA, venue July 3.
The New England premiere of the stage version of Disney's phenomenon has its official opening July 5.
According to production notes, the piece "follows Gabriella, a shy, brainy new student and Troy, the captain of the basketball team as they discover a love for singing and audition for their high school musical."
Directed and choreographed by Barry Ivan, the 37-member cast features David Nathan Perlow, Addi McDaniel, Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Kate Rockwell, Fred Inkley and Nancy Johnston. Among the ensemble are 12 talented local performers from 10 different Massachusetts communities.
