It's the first day after winter break at East High. The Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians and Skater Dudes find their cliques, recount their vacations and look forward to the new year. Resident jock, Troy, discovers that the brainy Gabriella has just enrolled at East High. When they decide to audition for the high school musical, is it a threat to the "status quo," or does Troy and Gabriella's alliance open the door for others to shine as well?

Jenny has been singing and acting since the age of 5, and hasn’t stopped, much to her family’s chagrin.
