Johnson County Park & Recreation District is proud to announce Academy Sports + Outdoors as the Production Sponsor for The Theatre in the Park’s production of Disney’s© “High School Musical 1 & 2.” The one act versions are both rated G, and will be on the outdoor stage in Shawnee Mission Park on Aug. 3 through 5, and Aug. 8 through 11.
“Academy is truly happy to be involved in the production of Disney’s© ‘High School Musical 1 & 2,’” said Regional Marketing Manager Amy Acock. “We are excited to see all of the young talent and look forward to a great show.”
The cast of Disney’s© “High School Musical 1 & 2” spent the afternoon of July 17 on a shopping spree to complete the list of props needed for the production with a donated gift card of $1,500 from Academy Sports + Outdoors. The store also presented the cast with two new basketball goals for the show.
Disney’s© “High School Musical 1 & 2” will mark the end of the 49th outdoor season for The Theatre in the Park. “We’re so happy for the terrific friendship we’ve developed with Academy,” said Producing Artistic Director Tim Bair. “Their help with our production of Disney’s© “High School Musical” has really allowed us to take the production value to the next level!”
The Theatre in the Park is the largest outdoor community theater in the country. The outdoor amphitheater is tucked into 10 beautiful acres in Shawnee Mission Park with a separate entrance at 7710 Renner Road.
