  • 'High School Musical' Hits the Stage!


    Disney Theatrical Productions, the division responsible for such smash Broadway hits as The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast and Mary Poppins will debut a new touring stage version of High School MusicalBig RiverHigh School Musical," in addition to aforementioned director Calhoun, will be choreographer Lisa Stevens, scenic designer Kenneth Foy, costume designer Wade Laboissonniere, lighting designer Kenneth Billington, sound designer Duncan Robert Edwards, and music supervisor Bryan Louiselle.
    Additionally, Disney's High School Musical: The Ice TourHigh School Musical, as well as from High School Musical 2, which is scheduled to premiere on Disney Channel in August.
    High School Musical premiered on Disney Channel on January 20, 2006, and became the highest rated original movie up until that time. It won the Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding Children's Programming, and received two Emmy Awards (of its total 6 nominations), a DGA Award, an Imagen Award for Best Children's Program, and a Humanitas Prize nomination. The soundtrack received a Billboard Music Award for Soundtrack of the Year, and was nominated for an American Music Award in the Favorite Album (Pop/Rock) category. The film even earned an entry in the Guinness World Record Book as the first TV movie to deliver nine concurrent singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. High School Musical is a contemporary musical comedy about a popular high school basketball star and a shy, academically gifted newcomer who discover they share a secret passion for singing. When they sign up together to audition for the lead roles in the school musical, it threatens East High's rigid social order and sends their peers into an uproar. In a desperate effort to maintain the status quo, the "jocks," the "brainiacs" and even the drama club regulars are soon hatching convoluted plots to separate the pair and keep them offstage. By defying expectations and taking a chance on their dreams, however, the couple inspires other students to go public with some surprising hidden talents of their own.
    Hmm, Dont you think Disney is going a little overboard with High School Musical?

      Not really. It's all about money and as long as the kiddies are willing to see anything and everything High School Musical then why not milk it for all its worth? The question is, is that when it starts to lose popularity will Disney let go of this franchise or try to keep it alive? Then I think it will be going a little bit overboard.

          I do agree that it is alot of HSM productions. I guess as long as the kids love HSM and are willing to see every incarnation of it then why not give them what they want? It's good, clean fun and I mean, hey, look at Disney's use of the Princesses, Winnie the Pooh, Tinkerbell and Mickey Mouse & Friends? I mean I see their "face" in practically every single store that I go whether it be a clothing item, toy, food or whatever. Would that be considered overkill? No, I don't think so...it's just knowing what will sell and making it readily availble for the masses to gobble up.

          Oh and welcome to MiceChat!
