Kenny Ortega Visits rehearsals for HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL

Kenny Ortega Visits rehearsals for HIGH SCHOOL MUSICALThe Director of the three worldwide smash hit High School Musical movies, Kenny Ortega, visited rehearsals for HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL LIVE ON STAGE! last week. In town for the premiere of the latest movie instalment, Kenny Ortega was full of praise for the Australian cast.
“This cast is a joy to watch,” he said. “They are all young and fresh, and bring enormous energy to the show. This is the sixth cast of HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL Live On Stage! around the world, and I think it could be the best, because these kids are so energetic and talented.”
Ortega saved special praise for the two lead actors. “I worked with Rebecca (Tapia, who plays Gabriella) before in the arena production of The Boy From Oz with Hugh Jackman, and she was fantastic. I honestly think she has one of the most beautiful voices in the world…. And Chris (Durling), well he is just perfect for Troy. He is young, athletic and very good looking. There’s great chemistry between Rebecca and Chris that will make this show so special!”
Ortega spent a couple of hours with the cast, watching their rehearsals, giving pointers about some of the characters and insights into the origins of the show, as well as answering questions from the cast.
“I hope to get back and see their work at some stage during the run (of HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL Live On Stage!),” he said.
