‘School’ still sings

Disney disc gets big bow

MUSIC TO MY YEARS: “Every decade there’s an iconic musical,” said Disney Channel’s Gary Marsh. “This is the one for the millennium, and I’m hoping that 20 years from now kids will be talking about ‘High School Musical’ the way we talk about ‘Grease.’

“There is an emotional honesty to the movie; every kid is going through the same tensions,” he added. “I think what we were able to capture is the intensity of what goes on and then give kids the release valve to find a way out and to express their own joy and individuality through song and dance.”
