High School Musical Jr. On Stage in Des Moines

Disney Channel’s smash hit movie musical comes to life on stage in Des Moines this November! Featuring the largest cast in the DM Young Artists’ Theatre Company’s history, you’ll hear the catchy songs and see exciting dance numbers of the wildly popular Disney movie.  The cast is “All in this Together” as they bring you the romantic-comedy story of two high school students from rival cliques that refuse to “Stick to the Status Quo” when they try out for the lead roles in their school musical.

Disney’s High School Musical Jr., is presented by the The DM Young Artists’ Theatre at the Kum & Go Theater in the Des Moines Social Club. It’s the first day after winter break at East High School and the Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians, and Skater Dudes find their cliques, recount their vacations and look forward to the start of something new. Basketball team captain and resident jock, Troy Bolton, and transfer Brainiac, Gabriella Montez, cause an upheaval when they decide to audition for their school’s musical.
