Add to Watchlist

East High, home of the wildcats, has a very definite social system in place. The athletes play sports, the drama club members perform, and the kids with their noses stuck in books and behind microscopes are the ones who compete in the academic decathlon. There isn't any crossing over into one another's social groups. Until Gabriella Montez and Troy Bolton (Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron) meet on holiday and sing a little karaoke.

When Gabriella transfers to East High, she and Troy can't deny their chemistry, or their newly discovered love for music. The duo audition for the school musical, even though she's an academic and he's an athlete, and in spite of some serious opposition from their classmates, which includes their friends and a scheming brother-sister duo, they change the landscape of their high school forever.

The film features the songs "Start of Something New," "Breaking Free," and "We're All In This Together."
