Everybody has their head in the game for Triple Threat’s Production of "High School Musical Junior" this July!
This is Triple Threat’s third year to offer a summer theatre camp and they have over 30 participants with a very energetic crew to add to the energy this year. Last year's participants staged "Bye, Bye Birdie."
This year camp meets Monday through Thursdays 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will culminate in performances on July 25th and 26th which are open to the public.
“This is my third summer performing with Triple Threat," James Ford said. "This year is more fun that last and it is evenbetter because I am acting opposite some great friends!”
In the play, James plays Troy Bolton, who finds himself falling for the new girl in school, Gabriella (Barbara Calderone) which causes major problems between the high schools most well known cliques.
Young love is not the only problem. Both Gabriella and Sharpay (Monica Callaghan) are up for the same part in Ms. Darbus’s (Emily Wiessman) Spring Musical. The cast is rounded out by a great group of teens such as Sharpay’s Brother Ryan played by RJ Clemens, Troy's best buds Chad and Zeke (played by Joe Mondi and Jake Robins), musician Kelsi (Catherine Cooney), Gabriella’s best friend Taylor (Ali Alexander) and the oh-so-smooth sound stylings of Jack Scott (Josh Megan Wood).
“This year’s production is going to be a smash,” Triple Threat co-owner Tori Clemens said. “From the moment the kids sang on the first day, I knew this was going to be an amazing show.”
Tori is supported by co-owner Laurie Wood who has spent countless hours designing a set that will stand up to the action and costumes that will pop with color. Tori and Laurie are assisted by Stage Manager Todd Bennington, Musical Director Nick Casiano, Choreographer Deana Carlucci and Director’s Assistant Melissa Hirsch.
The show is July 25th and 26th at 7 p.m. at Green Brook Middle School 132 Jefferson Ave.in Green Brook. Tickets are $10, and can be purchased by calling 908-868-6121 or firstname.lastname@example.org
