‘High School Musical 2’ to be performed at La Colonia Park

Heyjojo Productions’ final summer camp of “High School Musical 2” has two free performances at La Colonia Park in Solana Beach on Friday, Aug. 16 at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Please bring your own chairs.

“This is a wonderful, upbeat and lively show about summer vacation,” said director Jolene “Jojo” Bogard. “Last summer we performed High School Musical (ONE) and the kids all had so much fun so it made a ton of sense to do the sequel this year.”

Original choreography by 15-year-old phenom Carlos Jimenez (and his mom Brenda and sister Arielle Esparza) make this show “sparkle” with summertime antics. All sets, costumes, and props were made by students too.

“We really try and incorporate kids to think outside of the box, recycle items from their house and turn them into a trophy, a fish, or a volcano!” says Bogard.

Heyjojo Productions is located in Solana Beach and their fall season kicks off with auditions for the drama “The Outsiders” on Aug.18, and the musical “The Sound of Music” on Sept. 8. For more information, visit www.heyjojoproductions.com.
