    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

    By Gordon Cox

    July 3, 2007

    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.

    A Prayerful Three-Pointer From the Orchestra Pit

    By Charles Isherwood
    The New York Times
    Published: August 11, 2007

    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.

    The national tour of Disney's theatrical adaptation of the television movie "High School Musical" opened at the LaSalle Theater in Chicago.

    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.”

    The name of this new religion is “High School Musical.”

    What began as a mere made-for-television movie (on the Disney Channel, yet) has grown quickly into an international phenomenon both commercial and spiritual, at least for tweenage youngsters (mostly girls). DVDs, CDs, T-shirts, memorabilia and a spinoff concert tour have provided ardent adherents with the relics, icons and apostolic encounters necessary for proper devotion. Now the flock anxiously awaits the coming of a second revelation. The new testament, “High School Musical 2,” will first be shown on the Disney Channel on Friday.

    At the same time, a fully staged replica of the original movie — a singing and dancing crèche, you might say — has at last been assembled and sent out on the road to help believers keep the faith. The live production of “High School Musical” played preview dates in Detroit and Philadelphia before opening officially here in Chicago at the LaSalle Bank Theater, where it plays through Sept. 2. As a chronicler of the theatrical theology, journalistic duty required that I be in attendance.

    For the uninitiated, some background is perhaps in order. Just as new faiths grow out of old belief systems (see Judaism and Christianity), “High School Musical” is essentially derived from a previous mythology promulgated in the latter days of the 20th century. Namely, “Grease.” (That religion has of course not wholly died out; indeed, representatives of a new sect emerge on Broadway this very month.)
    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!
