High School Musical 4 Audition Script & Application Form (the audition script is the same for both males and females).

Initial Roles Being Cast:

ERIN - Eric is a soccer player and the only girl in the soccer team. She likes another player on the team, Derek, but his bad boy reputation is giving her second thoughts about him.

DEREK - Derek might look tough on the outside, but he really has a big heart. Derek is not only an exceptional soccer player, he is also a very talented dancer as during his free time, he also teaches dance at his family’s studio.

CAMPBELL - Campbell seems to have everything. Not only is Campbell the captain of the soccer team, he is also the star of the theater. Sadly, he has his eyes on a girl who likes another, Erin. Disney also let slip that Campbell is Sharpay and Ryan Evans’ cousin.

TAMARA - Tamara is a cheer squad member and a former East High queen bee. Tamara has her eyes in regaining her queen bee status, so it’ll be interesting what she’ll do to get her goal.

NATHALIE - Nathalie is another cheerleader and Erin’s best friend.

If you can not attend one of the in-person open casting calls listed above, you can still be considered by submitting to the casting director. Please follow the submission details carefully:
