COUNTY—Disney’s favorite High School Musical characters are back on stage as The Noble Fool Theatricals Youth Ensemble presents Disney’s “High School Musical 2.” After a sold-out success in 2006 with “High School Musical,” the sequel will be produced with a cast composed of nearly 50 teens and children from the Western Suburbs.

The Youth Ensemble is an exclusive, audition-only program for the best and the brightest young talent. Cast members have been working with theater professionals to learn and improve their acting skills.  They are learning choreography, music memorization and character development.

“Noble Fool’s ‘High School Musical 2’ cast reaffirms my passion and love of musical theatre,” said the director, Shellee Frazee. “I am so impressed with the work ethic of our cast and crew. When everyone feels that kind of passion and love for their art, the result is bound to be stellar.”
