Pull on your leotard and button down your Oxfords as the Playhouse goes back to the 80s with a stage version of the Oscar-winning film that launched a million pairs of legwarmers. This early blueprint for High School Musical stars X Factor finalist Beverley Trotman as inspirational teacher Miss Sherman, and follows starstruck students at New York’s school for the performing arts from auditions to graduation with some electrifying song and dance routines in-between. You wanna live forever?
