Tori Vega gets the chance of a lifetime to attend Hollywood Arts, an elite performing arts school after taking her older sister Trina’s place in her school’s big showcase. Tori is roped into helping Trina and her project partner Andre Harris prepare for their performance for the showcase in a few days, including Trina singing a song Andre wrote for her. When Trina’s tongue becomes swollen and she cannot sing properly, Andre tells Tori to fill in for Trina, but she refuses. They force her on stage and, with the help of Andre, Tori receives a standing ovation from the crowd, and accepts the offer to join Hollywood Arts. On her first day, she meets Cat Valentine, a girl who seems to be living in her own head, Robbie Shapiro, an awkward, nerdy student who speaks through his dummy Rex Powers, handsome Beck Oliver, and his mean girlfriend Jade West. After accidentally spilling coffee on Beck and trying to wipe the stain off his shirt, Tori finds herself at the wrath of Jade, who thinks that Tori is flirting with Beck. Jade does an improv scene with Tori, having Tori portray a dog, but then takes iced coffee and spills it on top of Tori, causing her to leave the room in humiliation. After the altercation with Jade, Tori wonders if she is good enough for, or even belongs at Hollywood Arts. At the insistence of Trina and Andre, who tell her not to let a mean girl crush her confidence, Tori returns to class and subsequently gets revenge on Jade by besting her in an improv assignment and then by kissing Beck in front of her.

Tori wants to try out for the lead role in a play called “Moonlight Magic”, which Andre is writing the music for. However, according to her teacher Mr. Sikowitz (Eric Lange), she must master a monologue known as “The Bird Scene” before she can be involved in any school production. Despite putting a lot of effort into it, she fails twice. As well as this, she must also think of a creative and meaningful way to decorate her locker, which is Hollywood Arts tradition, but all her efforts are unsuccessful as well. She again performs “The Bird Scene” and indignantly states that she is proud of her own work no matter what anyone thinks. She passes, as the secret of “The Bird Scene” is to be proud of one’s acting style. Inspired, Tori decorates her locker with the glowing words “Make It Shine”, as that was the song that she sang that got her into Hollywood Arts. Andre and Robbie sign up for ballet class as a way to meet girls, but arrive only to see an all-male class, They want to drop out, but they must continue the class unless they want to fail the semester. But then, a pretty girl joins the class, and the boys go crazy about her.
