If those words mean nothing to you then you obviously do NOT have a daughter between the ages of 7 and 12 living in your home.
Here are three words for you. HIGH. SCHOOL. MUSICAL. Wait, I’ve got three more. THE. ICE. TOUR.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about, let me just give a little info. High School Musical is a Disney movie. The main characters are Troy (the school basketball star) and Gabriella (new girl at school and brainiac) who find themselves auditioning for the school’s “musicale” and falling in teeny-bopper love. Add some catchy songs and dance numbers and a few more quirky friends, and VOILA! you have High School Musical. I like to call it, HSM. There is also a High School Musical 2 and I’ve heard there will be an HSM 3 as well. It is this generation’s “GREASE” only without all the swearing and sexual innuendo and the teen pregnancy scare.
Thanks to my bff Kristi, we (Emma and I) were able to get tickets to go see HSM–The Ice Tour with Kristi and her daughter, Sarah, on Saturday night. Along with some of Sarah’s other girls scout buddies. It’s HSM on ice skates. I had never been to any show “on ice” before (aka Ice Capades, Disney Princesses, Sesame Street or the like), so I had no frame of reference and no expectations. But I just have to say, from start to finish, this was an amazing show. The lighting, the props, the skating. Really great. What really cracked me up was all the HSM Dads who were there. And I mean they were rocking out with the HSM tunes right along with everyone else. At one point, before the show started, there was even an HSM GRANDPA who was standing up busting a move with the pre-show tunes. I do not make this stuff up, people! It was too funny.
The girls were on cloud nine. Singing along with all the songs, all starry-eyed. Oh, and the kids had fun too!
