Director: Ryan Paige

Choreographer: Samantha Mcloughlin

SYT Artistic Director & Set Design: Linda Treash


Troy, Gabriella and the students of East High must deal with issues of first love and group identity while negotiating the pressures of friends, family and school. “We are all in this together” is the resulting message of this retelling of the age old story of romance across identity groups. Only 30 youth will get to be part of this amazing musical written for and about teens with fun, creative and inspiring music and dance!

During BarnArts 3-week SYT camp, youth will take on characters, learn songs and dancing, and prepare for the full-scale production to be held at the Barnard Town Hall with original staging, costuming, choreography and a live band! Our team of theater professionals will teach, guide, and inspire your kids. Daily schedule includes a mid-morning snack and a long break for lunch, supervised outdoors at the Barnard Academy.
