      Disney Channel created a sensation with High School Musical in 2006. It has spawned two sequels, but I hadn’t even seen the original until last night. Of course, I’m not of current high school generation, so I’m not their target audience anyway.

      That said, I chuckled at the very opening bit, which had the two lead characters of Troy and Gabriella meeting for the first time at a


      Karoake contest and singing together. The way that scene was played reminded me of the very old Woody Woodbury Time or even Elvis Presley’s movie Speedway. It’s the concept of the spotlight hitting on you and then you have to perform. I was definitely amused by that theme being used here.

      The plot of the show is all very high school, which is okay because it is ...


      • high school. The two leads quickly become the two lovebirds, only he’s the jock on the basketball team and she’s the nerd for the math club. Neither of their friends are happy about the distraction that music becomes to the teenagers, though it’s their perception and not the reality.

        Kenny Ortega of Dirty Dancing fame brought this story to life, and that’s probably why it succeeded.

        There’s nothing special or unique about the teenage angst or romance; it’s just done fairly well with some catchy musical numbers and a lot of sizzling choreography.

        Zac Efron plays Troy with appropriate naivete, while Vanessa Hudgens brings a certain charm to Gabriella Montez. Ashley Tisdale is great as the spoiled, self-centered villain of the piece.

        All in all, the movie entertains, and it’s suitable for the family. That works for me.
