High School Musical gets extra life

Playbill.com says that Disney’s suprise hit musical, "High School Musical" has been given extra life. The show will receive extra airings on The Disney Channel and a new Double DVD to be released in May. The additional airings will be on March 10 and 23. Check your local listings.

The cast features Zac Efron ("Summerland"), Vanessa Anne Hudgens,
Ashley Tisdale ("The Suite Life of Zack and Cody"), Corbin Bleu, Lucas
Grabeel, Monique Coleman as the featured teens with Alyson Reed, Bart
Johnson and Joey Miyashima. Which explains why I’ve been getting so many searches for Zac Efron recently.

Miss Zoot has some funny posts about dealing with a teenager who is totally obsessed with the show. If it’s not on TV or his computer, then he’s signing the songs (still ranked #3 on Amazon). "High School Musical"  has also made the talent show circuit and I’m sure it’s driving Drama Teachers crazy at the auditions this season.

    This movie was a pure piece of crap. The storyline was directly ripped off “Eddie’s Million Dollar Cookoff,” with a few cliche songs thrown in. I must admit, some of the songs were catchy, but this is about the movie. And really, at the end, after a buzzer beater do you really think that all of the players, fans, and cheerleaders would dance a horribly choreographed dance? When you really think about it, Disney is just trying to make money off all of you. Overall, I’d give the movie 1/5 stars and the soundtrack 2/5 stars.

    I love your dances and show.It was so cool.I even can do some of the dance steps.It must of took a lot of time to do those moves.I’m in hip-hop.I go to Power and Grace,in Shreveport,LA.Oh!I was wondering if there will ever be a thing that you ever get to meet the stars and other people on the set?Cause if there is I’m going to sign up.Or what ever you have to do!Well bye everyone!

  34. joshua

    This movie was the greatest movie I have ever saw.in this movie I happy at the biggining, but as the the movie comes to a separation between Zac and gabriella i felt sad.as the movie ends i almost cry when they sang the song “breaking free”.

  35. The real Mz.Bleu

    At first I thought this movie was going to be the dumbest thing ever, but now that i seen it, i can’t stop watching it. I guess I thought wrong. I don’t want to sound like all these crazy girls but Corbin Bleu is cute.

I am trying to find a way to meet him right now because my brother is in the backstreet boys and he said that he was going to try to talk zac efron into meeting me. I can’t wait. He is so cool and cute and when I meet him I am going to make him mine.

  55. Dan Lowy

    Why can’t we have another showing of the High School Musical on Disney…..People are clamoring for more……Who does one write to in order to get some action……Not only is the show, the singing, the acting terrific, but there is also a tremendous message ……”We;re all in this together.” In this age of utter selfishness, we need more productions like this one.

  56. Natalia

  77. Nameless

    High School Musical is a lame attempt to create a movie that people of all ages can enjoy.
    No one over the age of 11 should be watching this and enjoying it, if he or she is sane.

  78. T Garner

    My dauhgters kendall and kloie love this movie they are only 3 and 4yrs old!! The cast Is Great Role Model , but to the person that says it’s a lame attempt dosn’t know anything about dance or singing & if your a people person you would know it is great for ALL Ages So It looks Like To Me Your The One Insane!!!

  79. TC

    I am a film student, and I found that disney has done a great job once again. The means of shooting, the casting, the song writing, it is all wonderful! I am 18 and I really enjoyed the movie (and not just because Vanessa Ann Hudgens is gorgeous). The editing was phenominal, the only thing is the storyline was not illustrious as to the plot of the play. The movie was about a play, but it outside of that, the movie was great. I think anybody who has the audacity to say the movie was substandard or all out insults it needs to have their head examined or get an education, whichever is prevalent.

    Thanks

  80. amanda
