Characters

Main

  • Troy Bolton (Zac Efron) is the male protagonist of the movie. He is the most popular male student at East High School, and the captain of the varsity basketball team. He is in a relationship with Gabriella Montez, who is played by Vanessa Hudgens. They met at a ski lodge while attending a New Year's Eve party in High School Musical, and were called on stage to sing a duet together. During the countdown to the New Year, Troy and Gabriella exchanged cellphone numbers. Gabriella later moved to Albuquerque due to her mother's career, surprising Troy when she arrived at his school. Along with most of East High, Troy takes a summer job at Lava Springs, the country club owned by Sharpay and Ryan Evans' parents. Over the summer, he gets new opportunities to go to a great college, and easily obtain a basketball scholarship, but this causes jealousy in his best friend, Chad Danforth, and Gabriella starts to worry that he has forgotten about his friends. He is also friends with Jason and Zeke. For this movie, Efron did all of his own singing, whereas in the first High School Musical, his singing was blended with singer Drew Seeley's voice.
  • Gabriella Montez (Vanessa Hudgens) is the female protagonist of the movie. She is a nerdy Latina, who won East High the Scholastic Decathlon in the first film. Known as the "weird and freaky math girl" in her old schools, she appears shy and intelligent, but finds a new popularity for herself at East High. She is in a relationship with Troy Bolton. Along with most of East High, she takes a summer job at Lava Springs (as a lifeguard), the country club owned by Sharpay and Ryan Evans' parents. As the summer progresses, she feels that Troy has become a different person when he gets new opportunities with his promotion. The pair briefly split up, but soon get back together when Troy got fed up with Sharpay's schemes. Her best friend is Taylor McKessie. She is also good friends with Kelsi Nielson and Martha Cox.
  • Sharpay Evans (Ashley Tisdale) is the antagonist of the film. She plans to spend the summer lounging around her parents' country club, Lava Springs, and winning the country club's mid-summer talent show (which was heavily biased in her favor). Sharpay is attracted to Troy Bolton, and she is trying to steal him away from Gabriella and his friends, throughout the movie. It is also said that she hates Zeke. Her plan is taken to a whole new notch when she promotes Troy to be an honorary member of the club, and cancels the Wildcats' performance in the talent show. She is convinced that Troy and Gabriella singing together could steal her spotlight -- after the pair previously beat her and her brother out to star in the lead roles for the Winter Musical of "Twinkle Town". Her plan failed when Troy confronted her about how she treated his friends. Although she is an antagonist, she is portrayed as both friendly and mean.
  • Ryan Evans (Lucas Grabeel) is Sharpay's fraternal twin brother, who is stuck between being an antagonist, and a male protagonist. Throughout the movies, we see that he owes his total devotion to Sharpay. He is portrayed as being minimally intelligent; in High School Musical, he is unable to read the word "Drama". During the second movie, his sister decided to sing with Troy during the talent show instead of Ryan. Desiring to spite his sister because of this, he decided to direct the talent show performance of the Wildcats working at Lava Springs. It was implied that he had a crush on Gabriella on the official website, later to be confirmed by the director.
  • Chad Danforth (Corbin Bleu) is Troy's best friend, and is also very good friends with Jason and Zeke. He has a summer job at Lava Springs as a waiter and part-time golf caddy, and is saving the money from his job to get a car to impress his girlfriend Taylor, whom he appears to be in a serious relationship with. After Troy gets promoted, Chad becomes a little jealous of him and hated the way Troy is being treated by Sharpay while he and the others tend to the customers. He begins to drift away from Troy, and as they begin to separate from each other he becomes great friends with Ryan Evans by playing baseball together. He and Troy make up near the end and it seems that he, Troy and Ryan are best friends at the end of the movie whilst singing "All for One".
  • Taylor McKessie (Monique Coleman) is Gabriella's best friend. She is also friends with Kelsi Neilsen and Martha Cox. She is captain of the school Scholastic Decathlon team. She has a summer job at Lava Springs as an Activities Coordinator. She always sees through Sharpay, and tends to be cynical when it comes to boys. This cynicism appears to have lessened since she and Chad began dating.

Plot

The summer brings excitement to the East High Wildcats as they go over their plans for their break from school. Troy Bolton (Zac Efron) stresses over getting a job, with the price of college looming on his mind, as well as trying to make sure he and Gabriella Montez (Vanessa Anne Hudgens) are able to stay together all summer. The final bell rings, and the students converge in song ("What Time Is It?"). As a symbol of his feelings for her, Troy gives Gabriella a necklace with his initial "T" on it on the last day of school.

Sharpay and Ryan Evans (Ashley Tisdale and Lucas Grabeel) plan on spending the summer at their family's country club, Lava Springs ("Fabulous"). However, Sharpay's summer plans also include breaking up Troy and Gabriella by getting Troy hired at Lava Springs, and making her move on him. But what Sharpay does not plan on is Troy talking the club's manager, Mr. Fulton (Mark L. Taylor), into hiring Gabriella and their close group of friends; this includes Gabriella's best friend, Taylor (Monique Coleman), and Troy's best friend, Chad (Corbin Bleu). Mr. Fulton is unable to fire the "extras" at Sharpay's command, since her mother (Jessica Tuck) approved of their hiring, so she orders him to make them want to quit. Fulton exerts his powers of intimidation upon explaining their place at the club. Seeing how his friends are intimidated and unconfident, Troy offers to help his friends working in the kitchen, and convinces them that they can work their hardships out ("Work This Out").

While Troy continues to worry about obtaining a college scholarship, Gabriella is simply thrilled to be in one place over the summer; the first time in her life when she doesn't move to a new city. Sharpay schemes harder than ever to make the Wildcats miserable, and win Troy, who has to choose between two worlds: his own with the Wildcats and Gabriella; or another, in which Sharpay's family can offer him an easy way to college and other luxuries he has only dreamed about.


Meanwhile Kelsi, inspired by their relationship, writes a ballad for Troy and Gabriella, and Troy agrees to sing with his friends in the upcoming talent show ("You Are the Music in Me"). Sharpay conspires to get Troy to perform with her in the show, and holding his future over his head. She and Ryan trap him as he prepares for a date with Gabriella, and show him the song she wants to make him do with her ("Humuhumunukunukuapua'a"). Later, she takes Kelsi's song away, speeds up the tempo, and forces Troy to sing it with her.


A visit from a local college basketball team, The Red Hawks, causes a rift between Troy and Chad when Troy chooses to spend time with the Red Hawks, instead of his friends, alienating especially Chad. As Troy grows further away from what was formerly his, Ryan realizes he doesn't mean much to Sharpay anymore. Taylor and Gabriella even invite Ryan to the baseball game, and Chad offers him Troy's place in the game ("I Don't Dance"). Troy and Gabriella's relationship is silently strained to the breaking point when Troy sees Ryan with Gabriella, sparking a little jealousy. Troy's relationship with Chad is tentative, as the latter feels Troy is abandoning him and the rest of their friends. Despite that, Troy (forced by Sharpay) and Sharpay (singing all but one line) then practice their song for the Midsummer Night's Talent Show ("You Are the Music in Me: Sharpay Version").


When Sharpay discovers that Ryan and the Wildcats are putting together their own performance in the show, she finally crosses the line by getting Mr. Fulton to ban all staff members from performing in Lava Springs' annual Midsummer Night's Talent Show, even though Ryan has been working with the group to put together a performance. Gabriella confronts Sharpay. She makes it clear that she refuses to play Sharpay's "game", and quits her job at Lava Springs. Troy overhears the exchange, and tries to persuade Gabriella to change her mind. Gabriella expresses her loss of trust with Troy, and how she just can't stay while she has a broken heart ("Gotta Go My Own Way"). The song ends with her leaving Troy's necklace in his hand, and running to her car crying, and Troy walking back toward the country club alone. Shortly after, he has a discussion about this with his father, who remains supportive of his son.


Troy returns to work the next day to find that all his friends refuse to talk to him, but Kelsi silently shows Troy the notice from Mr. Fulton. Troy becomes fed up with the downhill events that are occurring for his friends ("Bet on It"), and goes to tentatively reconcile with Chad. Troy confronts Sharpay, and tells her that he won't sing with her because of how she treated his friends, causing Sharpay to burst into tears. The Wildcats and Chad forgive Troy for his absence and later convince him to sing in the talent show, which he does only under the condition that they are allowed to perform as well. Ryan gives Troy a new song to learn moments before the show, saying that Sharpay wants to do to this song instead. As Troy goes onstage, he asks Sharpay why she switched the song, and Sharpay is shocked to find that her brother tricked her. Troy sings the song "Everyday" alone—until Gabriella is revealed from behind the Wildcats. In the end, Sharpay herself proudly presents her brother, Ryan, with the award for the talent show. After the talent show, the Wildcats (including Ryan and Sharpay) all head out to the golf course to enjoy the fireworks. Troy and Gabriella finally share their first kiss—with them kissing for the present, not the future ("You Are the Music in Me (Reprise, Abridged)"). The next day, the staff celebrates a great summer and a job well done with a "staff-only" pool party. ("All for One").
