ABOUT THE SHOW: The summertime sequel to the smash hit Disney Channel musical! On the last day of junior year, the East High gang can't wait to get the summer started – they're ready for summer jobs, money for college and to have fun. To that end, Troy gets them all jobs at Lava Springs Country Club – which happens to be owned by Sharpay's, father! While Sharpay tries to steal Troy's heart from Gabriella, her brother, Ryan, hopes to win the Star Dazzle Award. Everything comes to a head at the talent show, where the group has to remember their motto: "All for one, and one for all."​​

POPs has a really special place in Arianna's heart as a company that she's worked with as a student and now as a teacher. She's spent the last four years traveling, teaching and performing in 9 countries all over the world. As somebody who was naturally shy growing up she knows how crucial it was when she learned to be confident through the performing arts. Her greatest goal is to foster a positive, uplifting environment for students to push themselves and grow while passing along all of her knowledge and experience as a performer and person. This is Arianna’s third show with the Mini POPs, and she is thrilled to be surrounded by such talented and kind students! She hopes that this season leaves each of them with something special
they can walk away with and take pride in and she can't wait to see everybody shine on stage!
