High School Musical 3 Cast:

It's the end of the Wildcats' championship basketball game

against the West High Knights, where team captain Troy immediately

rallies their spirits ("Now or Never"). With the team's spirit

raised, they win, thanks to the winning shot from their newest team

member Jimmie "The Rocket" Zara. Later, at Troy's after-match party

at his house, Troy and Gabriella are seen thinking about their

future and wishing that their last few months at East High would

not end ("Right Here, Right Now").

Sharpay meets Tiara Gold, a British exchange student whom she

hires to be her personal assistant. When drama teacher Ms. Darbus

notices that there were so few sign-ups for the spring musical,

Sharpay suggests she could do a one-woman show. This alarms Kelsi,

who is writing the show, so she signs up everyone in their homeroom

for it instead. This results in Ms. Darbus announcing they will

create a play about their final days at East High, called "Senior

Year." In addition, she reveals that Sharpay, Ryan, Kelsi, and Troy

have all been considered for a scholarship at Juilliard, but only

one of them is to be chosen. Troy is confused, because he did not

apply to Juilliard. Sharpay becomes desperate to win the

scholarship, and knowing that Kelsi will give the best songs to

Troy and Gabriella in the musical, she gets Ryan to try to persuade

Kelsi to give them a song, by predicting her (and Ryan's) future

("I Want It All").

The next day, Gabriella and Troy meet on the rooftop and she

teaches him how to waltz ("Can I Have This Dance?"). Chad then asks

Taylor to go to prom with him. She initially refuses due to his

lack of enthusiasm, but later agrees when Chad proves he can put in

some effort and asks again in front of everyone in the school. The

group rehearses for the musical, a scene about their prom night ("A

Night To Remember"). Ryan walks in on Kelsi composing ("Just Wanna

Be With You") in the music room, and performs it with her, and then

he asks her to prom halfway through.

While Troy and Chad reminisce about their past ("The Boys Are

Back"), Sharpay and Tiara discover that Gabriella has a chance to

go to college early. Sharpay later convinces Troy that he is the

only thing keeping Gabriella from her dream, ("Right Here, Right

Now (Reprise)"). Troy talks to Gabriella about this over pizza, and

after sharing an awkward goodnight, Gabriella sings ("Walk Away")

and leaves for college the next day.

Troy's dad, Jack, talks to him about his academic future, which

he expects will be in the University of Albuquerque. This

assumption makes Troy become angry, confused, and he runs away,

storming around East High bewildered ("Scream") until he finally

screams at the top of his lungs in the theatre. Ms. Darbus has been

there all this time watching and reveals that she sent in his

application for Juilliard, as she knew how comfortable he was on

stage and how much he liked it. Troy takes no offense and thinks

about the advice given to him. Troy later gets a call from

Gabriella saying that although she loves him, she will not return

to Albuquerque, as she is too used to being away. However, on the

day of prom, Troy visits Gabriella at Stanford and convinces her to

return, as everyone is not the same without her ("Can I Have This

Dance? (Reprise)").

Back at East High, Jimmie receives a text from Troy to tell him

to cover for him onstage because he is going to be late. The

Juilliard representatives are there, and watch as the show seems to

go well ("Senior Year Spring Musical").

During the opening number, Kelsi and Ryan debut. While during

the second number, Chad, Jason, Zeke and Martha debut, Ryan does

his number with the many chorus girls; Jimmie then performs with

Sharpay and embarrasses her. Troy and Gabriella appear during the

second half of the show and sing their duet together. Tiara then

betrays Sharpay and tells her how she is going to take over next

year in the drama department. Sharpay finally learns how it feels

to be humiliated, but does not wish to go down. While Tiara

performs, Sharpay immediately crashes her performance and upstages


Ms. Darbus reveals that both Kelsi and Ryan have won the

Juilliard scholarship ("We're All in This Together (Graduation

Mix)"). Taylor will go to Yale University; Sharpay will go to

University of Albuquerque and along with that, she will also assist

Ms. Darbus in running the drama department in the fall (so that

Tiara does not get to take over the Drama Department). Troy decides

to go to the University of California, Berkeley, where he can play

basketball, study drama, and be close to Gabriella. After learning

about Troy's decision, Chad runs offstage and into the school gym.

There he and Troy work things out and learn that their college's

basketball teams will play each other the upcoming fall. Chad

decides to attend the University of Albuquerque (U of A).

At the graduation ceremony, Troy gives the class speech.

Throwing their caps in the air, the graduates form a giant wildcat

before breaking out into song and dance ("High School Musical").

The six stars walk down the field where a curtain closes off the

graduation ceremony and turns into a stage. The six stars do their

signature jump and then the camera does a close up of each actor.

They take their final bow as the curtain closes.
