STUDENTS from St John Fisher and St Patrick's Colleges have combined forces to present their production of Disney's High School Musical.

St John Fisher College Curriculum Leader - Arts and Culture Suellen Geran said more than 90 students had been singing, dancing and acting at rehearsals since February.

"An eight-piece rock band will accompany the on-stage performers and an eight metre wide LED screen will provide backdrops and special effects,” she said.

The story follows high school basketball star Troy and academically-inclined Gabriella who break the 'status quo' by secretly auditioning for lead roles in their school musical.

The production will be held in the Christian Brothers Building at St Patrick's College at 7.30pm from Thursday, May 25 to Saturday, May 27.

Tickets can be purchased online at either www.stpatricks.qld.edu.au or www.sjfc.qld.edu.au.

St Patrick's College is located at 60 Park Parade, Shorncliffe.
