high school musical challenge


Day 8 - Video of your favorite scene

It’s between Chad asking Taylor to prom and Taylor telling Chad they’re not Charlie’s Angels. Obviously i love any scene with Chaylor cause they’re the freaking best. I waited three movies for Chad to officially ask Taylor out and especially when they hugged in this scene…. <3! As for the scene with Charlie’s Angels, that was the scene when i knew they were gonna get together! Just the way they interacted with each other and looked at each other, the first time i saw it i thought, ‘they’re gonna totally get together’ so i was soooo happy when it happened! ^___^

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: why hasn't teen beach movie been adapted into a stage musical yet? if not even for broadway, just for youth theater? it has all the antique 50's/60's charm of grease and hairspray and the modernism of high school musical. the plot and the themes are progressive and challenge young girls to be the best them that they can be. the character development is incredible, and would give young actors a chance to explore their own character development skills while still having fun. the songs are fun and catchy, the choreography is incredible (there's opportunity for even more in a stage musical), and the costume design would be so fun- 50's beach AND biker attire? with modern surfer thrown in???? imagine the possibilities for hair and makeup. not to mention you can add coolest cats in town as a "performance" song in the first scene at big mama's. speaking of big mama's, there is incredible opportunity for not only really good set design, but also room to be creative and explore with set movement, when transitioning from the future to the past, and even from the beach to big mama's. there's a role for everyone- strong female lead, endearing ingenue, stereotypical "dream boat" guy, dorky male lead, zany villains, tough guy bikers, cutesy surfers, there is literally something for every type of young actor. any young theater student, cast or crew, would benefit from putting on a stage production of teen beach movie and i have no idea why it isn't a stage production yet.

Lessons I Learned From HSM2

I just realized, I don’t think I posted anything yesterday! So today, I’m continuing with finishing the 35 Day HSM Challenge and add to the last day, which is lessons I learned from the movies. Today, i’m gonna share the stuff i learned during HSM2! ^^

HSM2 Lessons:
1. You know the teacher you have for homeroom at East High? Apparently she’s your teacher during last period, too. For the same class. In the exact same room.
2. No one actually knows what Darbus is talking about
3. If there’s any running gags during these movies, it’s Jason asking Darbus questions no one wants to know the answers to
4. Summer starts at roughly 3:15 in Albuquerque
5. The ultimate way to show you’re excited for summer and can’t wait to get out of the school is to kiss your teacher
6. When you ask “What Time Is It?” the answer will ALWAYS be “Summertime”
7. Ryan touching the basketball and handing back to Chad had to have foreshadowed the I Don’t Dance number…they don’t talk now, but they will become friends!
8. There’s a Twinkle Towne poster in the back of the classroom…drama teachers always keep posters from shows that happened that year in their classroom
9. It is possible to look like a turtle while you dance
10. Sharpay kissed Zeke’s yearbook. That either means she’s warming up to him, she thought she wouldn’t see him again until next semester so it wouldn’t matter, or she thought it’d make his book worth more. It’s gotta be one of those three.
11. Chad’s surrounded by cheerleaders…. How is Taylor cool with that?
12. I’m not the only one who woke up at 6 am for high school! Troy and Gabriella did, too! I felt like my high school experience was totally in HSM now ^^
13. There’s a girl on the guy’s basketball team. She does the basketball thing with them during What Time Is It
14. East High’s colors are red, white and gold but nobody ever wears gold when they’re dressing in East High colors…just red and white (occasional black)
15. Best dance move of all time = The Roller Coaster!
16. Any time a slide on the floor is added at the end of a song, it’s called the Zac Slide because Zac Efron invented it, apparently
17. Chad thinks Taylor is hot (OTP!!!!)
18. Gabriella can’t take a hint. Sharpay says she’d hate to think the last day of school would be the day they’d say good-bye but then Gabriella says all happily, “no worries, my mom promised me no more moving until after graduation!” She learned absolutely nothing from the first movie.
19. Sharpay is totally afraid of Gabriella. (See: her reaction after Gabriella did Sharpay’s voal exercises)
20. High school students get beat out by college kids for summer jobs
21. Kelsi’s summer goals are the same as my goals every year. Grow!
22. Troy promises Gabriella the best summer ever with a necklace with his initial on it. He watches too many old movies
23. If Troy can take a couple of seconds to look away from his girlfriend and sign a random kid’s yearbook, he can’t be the worst guy ever
24. Chad has a self-timer in him that tells him when Troy and Gabriella are about to kiss
25. Chad also majored in vacation
26. Troy know how to skateboard and Gabriella knows first aid
27. Ryan was standing next to Kelsi at her locker. The first sign they will be cannon
28. Troy and Sharpay make sense to Sharpay, but not to Troy
29. Everything changes during the summer
30. Even though it was the last day of classes and none of them mentioned finals week or anything, everyone put their backpacks in their lockers. Apparently at East High you have the same locker every year, you can keep stuff in there all summer with no worries, and you can reuse last year’s books for next year instead of needing to worry about buying new books and stuffing them in the locker with all of last year’s stuff you never cleaned out.
31. At the end of the second What Time Is It, Chad either gave Taylor an awkward hug, was trying to kiss her, or actually did kiss her. She did skip happily afterwards so something happened
32. Troy’s ringtone is Get'cha Head in the Game
33. Whenever Gabriella calls, Troy blushes. But you’re not supposed to tell him you know
34. The conversation between Troy and Fulton on the phone happened awfully fast. How did he get jobs for all the Wildcats at Lava Springs in under two minutes when he just started saying he knew the most amazing girl for a job?
35. No one messes with Mrs. Bolton
36. There was a guy on Sharpay’s radio that sounded a lot like Ryan
37. Sharpay has a doggy
38. The theme at Lava Springs this year is Redemption
39. There’s 2 Ryan imitators - the one on the radio, and the one playing the piano in the pool
40. Iced tea, lifeguards, towels and turkey are all imported
41. Sharpay wants Fabulous
42. Sharpay also needs more
43. you never really notice how blue Troy’s eyes are until he wears an orangey shirt to bring them out more
44. The way to handle Sharpay is to do yoga. A LOT of yoga
45. Mrs. Evans’ nickname for Ryan is Ducky. Adorable!
46. Namaste: n. 1. a conventional Hindu expression on meeting or parting, used by the speaker usually while holding the palms together vertically in front of the bosom. 2. an angry Hindu expression on meeting or parting, followed by storming out of the room
47. Zeke’s idea of an awesome summer is assisting the head chef and seeing Sharpay everyday. He has a strange definition of “awesome summer”
48. Drawing straws is the best way to decide everything
49. Jason thinks that Fulton thinks Jason looks like Sharpay
50. Chad and Taylor are so in sync with each other
51. 3 strikes = FIRED!
52. Only Jason doesn’t know what ‘henceforth’ means
53. Darbus’ detention is better than working for Fulton
54. There’s enough space in that little kitchen for like 15+ people to break into song and dance in
55. Troy is magic if he can write backwards and upside-down on his little notepad and turn the page to Chad to show 'LET’S GO’ written in perfect writing
56. A team that washes dishes together wins together
57. Troy is an awesome sandwich maker
58. Troyella is Kelsi’s ultimate OTP
59. It’s so convenient Gabriella’s wearing such a pretty dress when she and Troy are singing a sappy mushy song
60. Drums are coming out of the piano
61. Troy’s one of the guys that likes to wear his pants a little lower
62. Troy’s also wearing the same red shirt from the first movie. Consistency
63. The consistency of Troy disappears when you realize his voice is way deeper this movie
64. HSM reference in HSM2 - “Maybe we can Work This Out but only if We’re All In This Together”
65. Ryan’s codename is Jazz Square
66. Ryan goes to facials to eat the pickle slices
67. “…our whole show’s going to be the Troy and Gabriella Show.” Ryan just summed up most of the HSM movies :(
68. If the Troy and Gabriella Show is anything like the Eddie and Raven Show from that one episode of That’s So Raven, it should come with a catchy jingle
69. Troy and Chad’s Ways to Make a Boring Job Fun - Rule 1, every day speak in a different accent and serve the food in a different way like by skipping
70. Chad would caddy for Godzilla if it meant making $40. He really wants that car!

35 Day High School Musical Challenge

Day 35 - Why did you enjoy all the HSM movies and what lessons did you learn from them?

I loved the addicting music. There were songs i’d constantly get stuck in my head and want to play over again. I liked the characters and in general, the people chosen to play them and especially how close everyone became to each other. I like that the dance-along is probably my only incentive ever to exercise. xD And i liked the plots. Even though the first one had been done tons of times before and will keep being done, it’s usually told in a different way and you just don’t mess with a good thing. The second movie’s plot…uh…hm…meh, guess i just liked it. And even though there was some scrutiny over the third movie’s plot i liked that it was relatable because it came out just after i graduated high school so everything from prom (to a lesser extent, anyway) to finals to saying bye to your friends essentially to just plain graduating i guess made me feel more comfortable about college.

There’s a lot of lessons i learned from HSM. But i don’t think i’m gonna be able to put them all in here. So, in hopes of keeping this challenge going a couple extra days, i’m gonna start with the two things i learned in general from the movies and then break down the things i learned from each movie specifically (not including things from the pop-up versions), starting with the first HSM….

12. Homeroom is for school announcements, listening to your teacher, talking to friends and ends after like 5 minutes. It’s not an actual class

117. It’s important to show Troy Bolton shirtless at least for a few seconds. That’s what really gets viewers and not the music
118. Casting the leads of a show is a challenge and a responsibility as well as a joy and a burden
119. It is possible to hack into the school’s computer system to make the scoreboard in the gym go all flooky and to make some chemical reaction not attached to any electricity stink

124. Kelsi = show business. End of story

134. Kelsi is the playmaker
135. Jason randomly fell in love with Kelsi because he walked over to her, seeing she was awkwardly holding the basketball, pulled her hat off and helped her shoot it into the net. Most random couple

SIXTEEN SIXTEEN SIXTEEN Days of High School Musical
Day 15: Who’s your favorite actor from the movie?

Finally an easy question! As awesome as Zac is and even though i love Lucas, Corbin’s my favorite actor from the movie. I love his hair, he’s an awesome singer, actor and dancer, he’s down to earth, is a good role model and he’s pretty fricking good looking! Every time now i hear Corbin’s gonna be on a show or something i’m gonna be watching it!
