The series pilot introduces a troupe of theater students led by the melodramatic drama teacher Ms. Darbus (Alyson Reed), a beloved character from the cultural sensation "High School Musical."

Additional casting announcements are forthcoming for the characters Cherry O'Keefe, Colby Baker and Harvey Flynn.
At Madison High, the students embark on a journey of self discovery while trying to build a revolutionary theatre program under the tutelage of Ms. Darbus. She casts a diverse troupe of both seasoned and raw actors to create an original musical production based on their lives.
The show will be driven by original music.
