Gibraltar alums get Disney treatment

Never in a million years did Gibraltar fifth grade teacher Devin Thomas think he would perform in “High School Musical” again. The first time was in 2007 as a student, but he and some of his classmates got a chance to do it one more time for the Disney+ show “Encore.” The episode takes viewers behind the scenes of putting on the production at a packed Door Community Auditorium this summer with eight of its lead actors. One of those actors was Allison Pfeifer, who had a softball injury that prevented her from playing the lead female in the show and put Kayla Schleicher into the brighter spotlight. Thomas says it was a thrill performing the show again with old friends and doing it in front of his wife and young daughter.

Thomas says the feedback from friends and family has been outstanding since the episode debuted on the streaming service on Friday.
