“High School Musical” is an entertainment industry sensation. For its premiere telecast, it delivered record Household ratings for Disney Channel and, against all basic cable television networks, was the #1 movie of the month in Households, Total Viewers and its targeted youth demographics, Kids age 6-14.

The “High School Musical” soundtrack from Walt Disney records also made its mark and within a month of its release shipped Gold.
The soundtrack remained the #1 selling album of iTunes for three weeks, and rose to #6 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart. Two singles, the duet “Breaking Free” and the rhythmic “Get’cha Head In The Game” (Troy Version), are also Gold. “Breaking Free” made the largest jump in the 48-year history of the Billboard Hot 100, catapulting from #86 to #4 in just one week. “Get’cha Head In The Game” broke a 34-year record with its biggest jump ever to #23, from #100. Seven other singles from the soundtrack also debuted on the Hot 100.

“High School Musical” follows Troy, a popular high school basketball star, and Gabriella, a shy, academically gifted newcomer, who both discover they share a secret passion for singing. When they audition for the lead roles in the school musical, it threatens East High’s rigid social order and sends their peers into an uproar. In a desperate effort to maintain the status quo, the “jocks,” the “brainiacs” and even the drama club regulars hatch plots to separate the pair and keep them offstage. By defying expectations and taking a chance on their dreams, Troy and Gabriella inspire other students to go public with some surprising hidden talents of their own. Starring are Zac Efron, Vanessa Anne Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale (Disney Channel’s “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody”), Corbin Bleu, Lucas Grabeel (Disney Channel Original Movie “Halloweentown High”), Monique Coleman, Bart Johnson, Oleysa Rulin and Alyson Reed.

The movie was written by Peter Barsocchini and directed and choreographed by Kenny Ortega and is Executive Produced by Bill Borden and Barry Rosenbush.
