High School Musical

According to Variey, Disney is bringing a travelling version of High School Musical to Atlanta:

The diversified scale of Disney Theatrical’s business is evident in the development of its newest franchise property, “High School Musical.” The tuner adaptation of the phenomenally popular telepic and CD will be staged by six professional theater companies this year, starting with Children’s Theater Company in Minneapolis and Theater of the Stars in Atlanta. But those productions will serve primarily to whet appetites for licensed school and community theater stagings to follow.

While there are no teens, tweens or pre-teens in my life, my wife will definitely want to attend. She and my 3-year-old daughter have practically worn a spot on TiVo hard drive watching the original.

If I’m going to go I’d much rather see the original cast (let me hold on to some level of my pride), but I’ll be happy as long as they’re happy.

    You should just succumb because the mania and sheer enjoyment is infectious! You should’ve heard the roar of the applause coming from the balcony bouncing onto the stage and reverberating into the orchestra section. Watch it through a child’s eye, but also watch the adults beebopping too! We’ve all seen cliques when we were in high school, and breaking through the “status quo” was always cool in reality. And… there’s nothing like live theatre. What you see via DVD or Disney Channel was rehearsed and retook many times; and, if you do your research the movie cast weren’t always doing their own singing. ahem. The show is dynamite!
