Theater of the Stars and Disney Theatrical Productions announced today that the touring production of Disney’s HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL will not be coming to Atlanta in August due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts; a return engagement is planned in summer of 2009 when the show will be remounted locally by Theater of the Stars.
“We are disappointed that the touring production of this wonderful show will not play Atlanta this summer but are excited to offer our ticketholders a special opportunity to see the first professional production of Disney’s HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the original show,” said Nick Manos, President of Theater of the Stars. “Ever since its premiere at the Fox, the stage version of Disney’s HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL has enjoyed a special connection with Atlanta audiences. We look forward to continuing that connection in the fall of 2008 with the premiere of the new musical.”
Based on the Theater of the Stars stage production, Disney’s HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL ON TOUR has delighted audiences in forty cities across North America for the past thirteen months. This high energy, family friendly musical has captured the imagination of regular theatergoers and introduced thousands of new fans to the magic of live theater.
