Over summer vacation, the East High Wildcats are ready to enjoy their vacation and earn some money at summer jobs. Troy Bolton lands a job at the country club, Lava Springs, not knowing that his job is a part of Sharpay’s plan to steal him from Gabriella. Accidentally foiling Sharpay’s plot, Troy not only helps Gabriella get a job as a lifeguard, but also lands jobs for Chad, Taylor, and the rest of his Wildcat pals. Making it worse, Sharpay finds out Kelsi has written a duet for Troy and Gabriella that’s sure to outperform everyone at the club’s annual Midsummer Night’s Talent Show. Reminded of her humiliation over the winter musical, Sharpay is determined not to suffer a repeat and forms her own campaign to make sure she’s not upstaged again. As they go head to head, Troy is enjoying the life of the privileged set, and begins to question what he’s willing to give up for what he thinks he really wants.
