High School Musical Trilogy
The entire three-part film series is hitting the big screen at Academy Cinemas.
It has been described as a modern-day adaptation of Romeo & Juliet, only with more hair flicking and choreography than violent bloodshed and deathlike comas. First hitting the big screen in 2006, Disney romantic comedy High School Musical tells the story of star athlete Troy Bolton and nerdy beauty Gabriella Montez as they fight the status quo and try out for the lead parts in the high school musical. With two further sequels, a spinoff television series, computer game and global stage edition on ice skates, the Disney series has since become a cult classic, launching the careers of Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale and Lucas Grabeel.
This October the entire teeth-flashing three-part film series is screening at Auckland's Academy Cinemas. In 370 minutes you'll be taken from East High School to the Lava Springs Country Club in anticipation of the end-of-summer talent show and back again as the gang address hopes and fears about their futures. There will be a 15-minute intermission between each film. As the song says, we're all in this together.
