The movie is set in 1937, centering on high school student Richard Samuels (Efron). While strolling the streets of New York, Samuels happens upon the yet-to-open Mercury Theatre and is noticed by its mercurial founder, Orson Welles (Christian McKay).

Me and Orson Welles will shoot mid-February; Disney’s High School Musical 3: Senior Year will begin filming April 21.
