TROY BOLTON [Male Lead] the most popular kid at East High, is the star of the basketball team who yearns to be more than what people want him to be. Troy discovers he loves to sing, but is afraid to admit it to his friends. Athletic, independent, sometimes shy, smitten with Gabriella, a true leader. Vocal range: Eb3-Bb4.

RYAN EVANS [Male Lead] Sharpay's fraternal twin and a star in the making. This character loves singing, dancing and lots of attention. He follows Sharpay's orders, but wants to break free from her shadow. Everything Ryan does is calculated and executed impeccably. Vocal range: F#3-F#4.

CHAD DANFORTH [Male Lead] is a hot-wired jock, second in command to Troy. He is focused on winning his school's basketball championship, but is slowly understanding that there might be more to this world, including his sparring crush on Taylor. Vocal range: C3-G4.

ZEKE BAYLOR [Male Lead] is a basketball player on the Wildcats Team. He has two secrets: a crush on Sharpay and a love for baking! Vocal range: G3-G4

JACK SCOTT [Male Featured] the nerdy school announcer who trips over his own feet with the "gift of gab" radio voice. Jack can be quirky in all aspects: looks, dress and comportment. 

RIPPER [Male Featured] is a cool skater dude who is, lo and behold, a cello player!  Vocal range: G#3-G#4

JAMES [Male Featured] In the big Audition scene, James is the auditionee who sings so badly off key it would scare anyone! Vocal range: A3-C#4.

GABRIELLA MONTEZ [Female Lead] the new girl in school. Gabriella is intelligent, pretty ("girl next door" type) and shy. She possesses a fantastic voice when she sings with Troy. Vocal range: A3-C#5.

SHARPAY EVANS [Female Lead] the egocentric star of the school musicals. She is Ryan's older twin (and the alpha dog of the two) and has a mad crush on Troy. Sharpay has never met a mirror she didn't like. Vocal range: A3-D5.

TAYLOR McKESSIE [Female Lead] the head Brainiac of the school, is the president of the Science Club. Taylor has a hidden soft spot for Chad, which might be why she is always making fun of him. Vocal range: G3-C5

KELSI NIELSEN [Female Lead] is a thespian rehearsal pianist and student composer extraordinaire. Underneath her shy demeanor, Kelsi has no tolerance for people (read: Sharpay) who use their talent only to be number one. Vocal range: D4-Bb4.

MARTHA COX [Female Featured] is a proud member of the Science Club and is brainy with a secret love of dancing. She has a fun-loving sidekicky personality. Vocal range: G3-Bb4.

SUSAN [Female Featured] is the "pop star wanna be" audition candidate. This actor is not afraid to go over-the-top with this short yet humorous part. Vocal range: F4-A4

CATHY [Female Featured] Cathy is the auditionee who can belt like Ethel Merman! Vocal range: G4-E5

CYNDRA [Female Featured] a singer that can imitate an obnoxious vibrato in a serious manner. Vocal range: Ab4-F5.
