I would focus on getting requirements out of the way freshman year, but Fine Arts, Drama, and maybe some studies in literature would help to get into a musical theater college. Assisting or taking part of plays/musicals outside of school hours would also be helpful!

As another person said, get the required credits out of the way first year. However, after that do some research into what credits you would need for the specific schools you are interested in, ie: literature, music theory, drama, etc. Also, make sure you keep your options open, I was set on doing law freshman year, but now I am on track for astronomy and astrophysics, so remember, nothing is set in stone.

And the most important thing is to enjoy yourself; high school will be some of the most fun years in your life, so make sure you get required things out of the way, but don't forget to take classes or extracurriculars that are just fun.
