Ludlow skater lands star role, 1 July 2007, Cincinnati Enquirer, Cincinnati, Ohio Jordan Brauninger was only looking for a job, but he landed the role of a lifetime.
Brauninger mailed an audition tape to Feld Entertainment, hoping to end a series of local odd jobs. He wound up being one of 18 world-class skaters cast in “Disney’s High School Musical: The Ice Tour.”
The 20-year-old home-school graduate won a lead role as Troy Bolton in one of three tours inspired by the Disney Channel original movie “High School Musical.”
Brauninger is eager to skate, act and lip-synch to the role of East High’s jock. Troy, the basketball team captain, leaves his clique to try out for the high school musical.
“I like the (role of Troy) because I can kind of relate to being able to send out the message to be yourself,” Brauninger said. “It’s nice to portray someone who’s good.”
