I Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You-Vocal
I Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You- Instrumental

Yeah we got a good thing going on

Right here is right where we belong

You never really know what you might find

Now all I see is you and I

You’re everything I thought I knew that I’ve been looking for

I cant take my eyes off of you

I know you feel the same way too

I cant take my eyes off of you

All it took was one look for a dream come true

I cant take my eyes off of you

Feelings like i never knew

I cant take my eyes off of you

From the start got my heart yeah you do

What I’ve Been Looking For-Vocal
What I’ve Been Looking For – Instrumental

So good to be seen

So good to be heard

Don’t have to say a word

For so long I was lost

So good to be found

I’m loving having you around

This feeling’s like no other

I want you to know

I’ve never had someone

That knows me like you do

The way you do

I’ve never had someone

As good for me as you

No one like you

So lonely before, I finally found

What I’ve been looking for

Doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo

Doo doo, woah oh oh oh

Doo doo doo doo

Doo doo doo doo

Audition Songs -  Female

When There Was Me and You - Vocals
When There Was Me and You - Instrumental

It’s funny when you find yourself

Looking from the outside

I’m standing here but all I want

Is to be over there

Why did I let myself believe

Miracles could happen?

‘Cause now I have to pretend

That I don’t really care

I thought you were my fairy tale

A dream when I’m not sleeping

A wish upon a star

That’s coming true

But everybody else could tell

That I confused my feelings with the truth

When there was me and you

Start Of Something New – Vocals
Start of Something New – Instrumental

I never believed in what I couldn’t see.

I never opened my heart to all the possibilities.

I know that something has changed –

Never felt this way

And right here tonight

This could be the start of something new.

It feels so right to be here with you. Oh.

And now, lookin’ in your eyes, I feel in my heart

The start of something new.

Stick To The Status Quo – Vocals
Stick To The Status Quo – Instrumental

This is not what I want

This is not what I planned

And I just gotta say

I do not understand

Something really

Something’s not right

Really wrong

And we gotta get things

Back where they belong

What I’ve Been Looking For – Vocals
What I’ve Been Looking For – Instrumental

I want you to know

We’re All In This Together – Vocal
We’re All In This Together – Instrumental

We’re all here

And speaking out with one voice

We’re going to rock the house

The party’s on now everybody make some noise

Come on scream and shout

We’ve arrived because we’re stuck together

We make each other strong

We’re not the same

We’re different in a good way

Together’s where we belong

We’re all in this together

Once we reach we can fly

Know inside we can make it

We’re all In this together

Once we see there’s a chance that we have

And we take it

Monologues

Troy Bolton

“My parents’ friends are always saying, ‘Your son is the basketball guy. You must be so proud.’ Sometimes I don’t want to be ‘the basketball guy.’ I just want to be, you know, me.”

“I can’t believe you guys! Is this what you guys want to hear: Singing means nothing to me! Gabriella means nothing to me! I’ll forget the audition, forget her, and we’ll go get that championship! Everyone happy now?”

 

Gabriella Montez

“At my other school I was ‘the freaky math girl.’ That’s all they thought I was... always pointing at me, whispering behind my back. They made me feel like I was a freak and I hated it. That’s kind of why I want to keep a low profile here, you know, so I can just be me.”

“Guess what? I don’t want to do the callbacks, either! Who were we kidding? You’ve got your team, and now I’ve got my team. I’ll do the science Decathalon, you win your championship. It’s where we belong. Go Wildcats!”

 

Sharpay Evans

“So nice of you to show our new classmate around.
(to Gabriella)
Troy is such a sweetheart, isn’t he? He’s the star of the basketball team, just like I’m the star of the Drama Club. We’re perfect for each other, don’t you think? Are we having lunch together, Troy? Oh, look, the sign- ups for the msucial.”

(Sharpay signs her name on the sheet and says to Gabriella.) Oh.. were you going to sign-up too? I’m so sure we could find something for you. The ugly old Nurse has lots of fun.”

 

Kelsi Neilson

“If you want to rehearse, I’m usually in the music room during free period and after school... and sometimes even during biology class. Call me on my cell phone and I’m there! Or if it’s easier, I can give you a wake up call and come over with my accordion... it’s mobile!”

 

Jack Scott

“Attention, custodial staff: a nauseous freshman just hsared his pancakes all over the third floor corridor. We’re talking major spewage, folks, so watch out-
(Ms. Darbus hands jack a note about the drama club.)
Sorry, Peeps, this just in: Please remember to sign up for the school musical, Juliet and Romeo, by red-hot composer babe Kelsi Neilson. Until later, this is Jack Scott, the Velvet Frog of East High.”

 

Ms. Darbus

(Addressing the class)
“But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, who is already sick and pale with that grief, that thou her maid art far more fiar than she.
(Darbus bangs dong, Sharpay, Ryan and Kelsi Applaud.)
Thank you.... Thank you very much. Well, once again, they forgot to announce the auditions for the winter musical, Juliet and Romeo, written by our very our Kelsi Neilson. Kelsi, stand up and take a bow.”

Callback Songs

I Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You – Vocal
I Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You – Instrumental

Ya never know what you’re gonna feel, oh
Ya never see it comin’ suddenly it’s real

Oh, never even crossed my mind, no
That I would ever end up here tonight

All things change
When you don’t expect them to
No one knows
What the future’s gonna do
I never even noticed
That you’ve been there all along

I can’t take my eyes off of you
I know you feel the same way too, yeah
I can’t take my eyes off of you
All it took . . . Was one look
For a dream come true

What I’ve Been Looking For Reprise – Vocal
What I’ve Been Looking For Reprise- Instrumental

It’s hard to believe
That I couldn’t see
You were always there beside me

Thought I was alone
With no one to hold

But you were always right beside me
This feeling’s like no other
I want you to know

I’ve never had someone that knows me like you do
The way you do
I’ve never had someone as good for me as you
No one like you
So lonely before I finally found
What I’ve been looking for

Bop To The Top- Vocal
Bop To The Top- Instrumental

Bop bop bop, bop to the top

Wipe away your inhibitions

Stomp stomp stomp, do the romp

And strut your stuff

Bop bop bop, straight to the top
We’re going for the glory

We’ll keep stepping up and we just won’t stop
