Vanessa Hudgens is set to take on the role of Allie in The Notebook for an upcoming stage adaption reading by Powerhouse Theater.
Vanessa will star alongside Hailey Kilgore, Candy Buckley, Antonio Cipriano, Clifton Duncan, and James Naughton in the upcoming reading of Ingrid Michaelson’s stage adaptation, to be held in Vassar College’s Martel Theater on June 23.
According to Broadyway.com: “The Notebook is set in 1940s South Carolina, where a mill worker named Noah Calhoun and a rich girl named Allie are desperately in love, despite their parents’ disapproval. When Noah leaves to serve in World War II, Allie meets another man; when Noah returns years later as Allie is about to get married, their romance reignites.”
This won’t be Vanessa’s first time taking on Broadway roles — the singer/actress has also appeared in the live TV productions of RENT and Grease, and also starred in Gigi in 2015.
