High school unveiled by EDMT

“High School Musical 2,” like its predecessor, “High School Musical,” is a wow that appeals to youngsters from grade-school age to high-school graduating classes. The current El Dorado Musical Theatre production gives a rather thin plot, about rivalries between members of a senior class as they work at a country club during a summer vacation.

A dual cast of nearly 100 is subdivided (with some overlap) into the Lava and Springs groups. As usual with EDMT, the production values are spectacular as the young performers jam the stage with complex choreography and dazzling song, amid some eye-popping scenery and costumes.

“High School Musical 2” continues through April 26 in the Jill Solberg Performing Arts Theatre at Folsom High School, 1655 Iron Point Road in Folsom. From Hwy. 50 take the Prairie City Rd. exit (Exit 25) north and turn right directly across from the Intel facility. Performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 7 p.m., with matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. Closing performance is at 6 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $20 for adults, $16 for children and seniors, with group discounts available. For tickets and more information see www.edmt.info or call (916) 941-SING.
