Recently, New Expression Atlanta performed its final musical under the RATCo name. High School Musical Jr. was performed on November 20th and 21st at McIntosh High School in Peachtree City, GA. With a cast of over 50 volunteers and students, it was a high-energy, fun-filled show all about Breaking Free from high school’s status quo.
In High School Musical, the lead character Troy Bolton discovers a new found freedom when he takes the stage and decides to audition for the Spring Musical. True to the character he played, Micah Stuart also found his voice through New Expression.
“I was utterly dumbfounded when Amanda left me a message over the phone asking me about the part. At first the idea of being Troy shook me up something fierce, but eventually I came to embrace the role. When I saw the friendship and kindness people showed me and the positivity everyone embraced, I decided to stick with the first role New Expressions offered me in Seussical. This role took it to a whole new level. Being in this show, I’ve definitely gained more confidence and passion.”- Micah Stuart
