High School Musical 3: Senior Year

Synopsis: Troy and the gang of East High School are going through their senior year, facing graduating and going their separate ways. Coming to terms with the reality of it all, Troy wants to attend the nearby University of Albuquerque next year on a basketball scholarship, but Gabriella wants to attend Stanford University in California. Meanwhile, Sharpay, the school's shallow and spoiled rich girl, plots to go all out planning the school's final musical show with the idea to add music to her hopes and fears about the future. While Sharpay takes an up-and-coming British exchange student under her wing, her flamboyant fraternal twin brother, Ryan, has his sights set on something different after school. In addition, Troy's best friend and basketball teammate Chad, and Garbiella's best friend Taylor, all have their sights set on their plans after high school and come to terms with the reality of the real world.

Your room is way cool.

Thanks, man. You were in my room?

Well, yeah. I just took a picture. Look.

- Great.

We should hang out tonight.

Get to know each other or something.

I just gotta grab the championship

trophy I left it in my truck.

- Don't sweat it! I'm on it!

- OK.


So, another top-secret hiding place?

You're the second girl I've had up here.

The first was my mom.

She only climbed up here to get me down.

Well, I'm honored.

This place is so cool.

Me and my dad built it.

That the coach
