Last year Disneys High School Musical soundtrack hit no. 1 on the Billboard charts and iTunes bestseller list, making it the most successful made-for-TV film in history. Not one of those buyers? HSM stars Zac Efron as basketball team captain Troy and Vanessa Hudgens as shy math whiz Gabriella, clique-crossed lovers who manage to overcome their schools status quowhich drop-dead gorgeous teens are apparently at the bottom rung ofand still remain true to their hearts. (And oh my god, oh my god, Zac and Vanessa are, like, totally dating in real life!) If none of that scared you off, congratulations: The Seattle Childrens Theatre will perform a stage adaptation of the musical for the next 10 weeks. If youre ready to brave this modern-day Romeo and Juliet story accompanied by confectionery-sweet pop songs, then let the force be with you.
Fridays, 7 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 2 & 5:30 p.m. Starts: Sept. 14. Continues through Nov. 24, 2007
