GLOVERSVILLE — The Gloversville Middle School Drama Club will perform “Disney’s High School Musical Jr.” on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

In the musical, directed by Jennifer Flynn and Michele Zavadil, Troy, Gabriella and the students of East High must deal with issues of love, friends and family while balancing their classes and extra-curricular activities. The show’s danceable songs are sure to engage audience members of all ages.

It’s the first day after winter break at East High. The Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians and Skater Dudes all find their cliques. Basketball team captain and resident jock, Troy, discovers that the brainy Gabriella, a girl he met singing karaoke on his ski trip, has just enrolled at East High. The couple causes an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical. Although many students resent the threat posed to the “status quo,” Troy and Gabriella’s alliance might just open the door for others to shine as well.

Performances are Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $5.
