SHE may not be Vanessa Hudgens but has the potential to play a better Gabriella Montez when High School Musical goes live on stage in Australia. One out of hundreds of girls who auditioned for High School Musical's lead role of Gabriella Montez, former McDonald College student Rebecca Tapia got the gig. The first High School Musical in 2006 earned Disney a smashing $US100 million. Tapia said she was excited and grateful to be part of such a successful show. ''I'm just so excited. I mean I've done a lot of other shows in the past five years and for this one to be my first lead from a movie so successful, I feel very lucky and grateful,'' she said. Tapia's first break was being a semi-finalist for Australian Idol 2003 as well as appearing in musicals such as Oh! What a Night, Leader of the Pack, Shout! and The Boy from Oz. Despite Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens building an on-screen and off-screen romance, Tapia assures nothing is going on between her and Chris Durling . ''I'm sure there are some off-stage crushes or goss, but right now Chris and I are so apart from everyone else because we have so much to do,'' Tapia said. The cast have been rehearsing for the past four weeks. The show is bound to take children on yet another exciting musical journey. ''I think it's a great new musical for a younger generation that not many shows cater for these days and I think both adults and children will enjoy it,'' Tapia said. The show will stick to the storyline, however, the ending and beginnings of some songs will vary from the movie. Tapia is focused on playing her role the best she can, even though they differ a bit in reality. ''I'm a sweet girl like Gabriella, but I think she's more shy than what I am and she's very much into academics where I was always into dance class and I'm not as brainy,'' she said. After High School Musical, Tapia hopes to become a recording artist. '' I hope to release a song, I'm looking into pop but I love the ballads so maybe a pop ballad,'' she said. Previews start on Saturday and the opening night is next Thursday at the Capitol Theatre, Sydney.
