A HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL - 1973 takes a satirical look at high school relationships as in GREASE, FOOTLOOSE, ZOMBIE PROM and yes, the HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL movies. This musical is a love story between the popular kid and the new girl in school, a jealous cheerleader and her groupies who scheme to come between them and the adult teachers who have to put up with all the crazy teenagers. We learn that the school board has lost it's funding and the school is going to have to close. The kids abandon their idea of a hunger strike to save the school and instead opt to put on a show to raise the money needed to keep the school open so they can graduate.
Even though the show is a success, they fall short of the amount needed. Thanks to the almost psychic ability of the brainiac kid, (who has a knack for coming up with ideas for things that won't be invented for 20 or 30 years,) a company buys his idea for a super computer chip and pays him millions of dollars for it. The school is saved, the teachers have their jobs, the kids can graduate - AND they have a mega mix line dance to end the show. An original script and score, perfect for any size high school, with many principal roles, as well as many features for ensemble characters and fun, groovy 70’s style music.
