With Boi in tow, Sharpay packs her bags and heads to the Big Apple to fulfill her destiny. Her father has given her one month to make it to center stage, or else she will have to return home and learn the family business.

Robert Curtis Brown ("High School Musical") and Jessica Tuck ("High School Musical") reprise their roles as Sharpay's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Evans.
