Disney's High School Musical!, by
A Very Good Show
Thursday, March 13, 2008
4.0
Last night, I went to see Atlanta Professional Theatre's production of High School Musical. This is a great show and the talent is outstanding. Troy had a phenomenal voice (much better than Zac Efron). Gabriella was also very good. She had a great voice, and played the part well. I thought it was funny that in real life, the man playing Troy was 25, and the girl playing Gabriella was 16. It was an awkward kiss for them! Sharpay was good, but not outstanding. Ryan was also very good, and had exceptional comedic timing. He acted way too gay though. Ryan is not supposed to be gay, he's just a theater geek! Mrs. Darbus (Kay Hall) was the downside of the production...She had a southern accent, and she was very awkward to watch. She was horrible.... Kelsi did a fine job. Chad was good. Zeke was very very good!! He was a highlight of the show. He was a great dancer, he was very funny, and he had a great singing voice. I didn't pay attention to the man playing Coach Bolton...on another note, the energy of act 1 was EXTREMELY low! The opening number was weak, and the cast members looked uncomfortable. The theater was horrible. The Acoustics were very bad and I could only understand about half of the words. Another great moment of the show was Martha Cox. She was great! And the moment where she popped out of the side of the wall was hysterical! that was very creative!

Overall
Singing- 9/10
Dancing- 6/10 (I was expecting much more)
Acting-8/10
Set- 7/10 (the set was the same throughout the entire show, but it was a good set)
Lighting- 7/10
Costumes- 9/10

I Would definitely recommend this show to any family wanting to see the stage production of HSM!
I thoroughly enjoyed the show!
