Although Troy plays ball and Gabriella sticks to the books, they find common ground -- and romance -- auditioning for the school musical. Will the couple's alliance allow them to "Stick to the Status Quo?" Find out when High School Musical on Stage! comes to Hagerstown.

See how Peter became Pan in the hit musical Finding Neverland, which Vogue raved was "a must-see you'll remember for years to come." Directed by visionary Tony winner Diane Paulus and based on the Academy Award-winning film starring Johnny Depp, Finding Neverland tells the incredible story behind one of the world's most beloved characters: Peter Pan.
