The Wildcats get summer jobs at a country club, and Troy must decide between his friends and a more privileged lifestyle.
School's out and Troy, his teammates and Gabrielle all get jobs at a country club for the summer. Sharpay's father runs the club so she is used to getting her way around there. Sharpay is determined to win the club's summer talent show, an event she has dominated for the last six years. She thinks getting Troy to perform with her will cinch the win, so she dumps Ryan as her partner and schemes to get Troy away from Gabriella so she can perform with him.
