Olivia Oguma has been playing the role of Kelsi Neilson, the composer in the show for 8 months despite the fact that, she is very much Asian American. The character was Caucasian in the movie, which the stage version is based on….but the producers decided to take a chance and have Olivia play Kelsi.
As the tour continues, they will be hitting the West coast for the rest of their run (which is set to close on August 24). For more information on the show www.highschoolmusicalontour.com
