Zac Efron was in High School Musical with Tyler.
Recognize him? He’s on the geek squad with Taylor.
Tyler is my dad’s neighbor. We used to play together all the time.
And this is how we play six degrees of Kevin Bacon ending with (starting with?) me.
That, and High School Musical was filmed at my high school.
In Salt Lake, not in Albuquerque.
One more reason Hollywood is to never be believed. Anyway.
If you have a child in the house you’ve most likely seen this movie and if you’ve seen this movie chances are you’ve seen it more than once. It’s addictive like that. It just so happens I had an errand to run at my old Alma Mater and I took my trusty camera along to show you how Hollywood can turn a place that was a nightmare to me into a dream for the tween set.
The entryway, where everyone found out about Troy and Gabriella getting a callback.
Sharpay’s locker, I wish they would have kept it pink.
The commons. Better known as the place where everyone busts a groove and dances on the tables in perfect synchronization completely out of the blue. Just like when I went to East. I do love musicals.
This hallway was only in the movie for a second. But it needs to be shown for I believe it to be a form of teenage torture.
I’m not even taking this from the end of the hallway, this is about 3/4 of the way down. The school is four levels and three of the four hallways are this long. And as fate would have it I would somehow end up with classes on the second and fourth floors at opposite ends of the school every other period. Have I mentioned that high school was not my most glorious of years?
So there you go. You can tell your kids you know a lady who WENT! to EHS. A real live WILDCAT! (P.S. Hollywood, we were the Leopards, Wildcat is kinda lame.) And I’m even willing to sell my last honest to goodness EHS shirt to the highest bidder. That, or you could go into the Disney Store and buy a brand spanking new replica. Needless to say I don’t rock my EHS shirt in Indiana, I look too much like a Troy groupie.
