Chad Danforth is one of the basketball players at East High School in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He's played by Landon Scott in Civic Theatre's production of Disney's High School Musical.
"Chad is really interested in basketball and has been Troy Bolton's best friend forever. At the beginning of the show, Chad is ready for the big basketball game. Then Troy begins showing an interest in the school musical, and Chad says that Troy can't be part of the musical. But as a good friend does, he supports Troy at the end," Landon said.
"My favorite scene is 'Counting on You.' The team is getting in Troy's face, saying, 'This is your game. Without you, we're nothing.' It's really fun to dance," Landon said.
Disney's High School Musical will be performed July 11-12, 18-19, 2008 at the Tippecanoe County Amphitheater, located on State Road 43 North.
