    How sad, no shows here in CA.

    Thanks for posting it. Amazing how they just keep it up since it's popular.

        'High School Musical' launches U.K. tour

        Show begins in Bromley on Jan. 23

        Total world domination continues apace for "High School Musical," the legit version of the smash Disney Channel telepic. "HSM," already repped in the States by a domestic touring production, kicks off a U.K. tour in January.

        Produced by Stage Entertainment in co-operation with Disney Theatrical Prods., the show begins in Bromley Jan. 23 and plans to visit more than 30 cities in Blighty, including Edinburgh, Wimbledon, Manchester and Glasgow.

        No London plans have yet been set for the production, which is helmed by Jeff Calhoun, director of the U.S. tour.

        Storyline follows the budding romance between a nerd and jock when they both decide to try out for the school tuner. Stage version includes the telepic tunes that have helped drive the DVD and the soundtrack up the sales charts, along with two new numbers.

        Meanwhile, "High School Musical 2" begins airing on the Disney Channel in August.

          CHICAGO, Aug. 10 — New religions do not arise every day, so serious note should be taken when a belief moves from cult status to bona fide faith. Recently a nascent creed has stolen the hearts and minds of thousands of young Americans. Its key tenets include the idea that everyone gets along really well in high school, and thus that being a teenager is super fun.

          Arielle Jacobs and John Jeffrey Martin as teenagers who face peer pressure and self-doubt on the way to true love in “High School Musical.”

          Whether this accords with current reality in American high schools I cannot say, and frankly doubt. But religious devotion is not really about encountering the harsh truths of the world, but about seeking some solace for them and finding the inspiration to change them.

          On that score, call me a skeptical believer in “High School Musical” and its power to improve the world. “We’re all in this together,” the chorus of the show’s climactic anthem, is probably as profound and morally instructive as most religious precepts. So, go Wildcats! Yay, theater!
