High School Musical Jr (musical) Wikipedia
‘’High School Musical is a part of the High School Musical. Broadway by Music Theatre International (MTI). MTI's Broadway Jr. series adapts full length musicals into approximately 70-minute productions that are more manageable for middle school aged performers. ‘’High School Musical rights come in a kit which includes scripts for the main cast and chorus books for the chorus. Also included is a choreography DVD and a performance/rehearsal CD. The performance tracks are first on the CD and include all the music without voices, whereas the rehearsal CD provides the music along with recorded voices. Also included is a director's book with the full script as well as area to make notes and suggestions for staging. The full score is included for music teachers or for a live orchestra.
Both the story and music in this truncated version closely follow the original film. Songs from the Disney film include Start Of Something New, Stick To The Status Quo, Bop To The Top, & We’re All In This Together and many more. It also has 1 extra song “Counting On You” It was originally written for the movie but was cut.
There are also similar musicals based on The Jungle Book, Cinderella, One Hundred and One Dalmatians, The Aristocats and Sleeping Beauty but they have the word "Kids" at the end of the title instead of "Jr.". MTI's "Kids" musicals are written for even younger performers and are shortened further to run approximately 30 minutes. The musicals based on Alice in Wonderland’', Mulan’’, and Aladdin are "Jr." versions, which like ‘’High School Musical Jr are more detailed.
