The hype is building by the moment in anticipation of Friday night's debut of "High School Musical 2" on the Disney Channel. I admit all the buzz has me thinking I ought to tune in myself to see what's going on with the teens at East High.
For those who don't know, the show reunites the 2006 cast, including Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens (pictured).
And, because the setting focuses mostly on a country club/golf course - hey, one of the "HSM2" characters tools around in a pink golf cart! - it makes sense that our own Haggin Oaks Golf Complex would want to get in on the action.
(Haggin Oaks is hosting a "High School Musical 2" party Friday night. Sorry, we hear there are no longer any tickets available; hopefully, you were lucky enough to have snagged one. Anyway, Radio Disney's team is expected to get everyone fired up with games, movie trivia, dance routines, and a big-screen showing of "HSM2.")
If you miss that party, be sure not to miss Bee TV Columnist Rick Kushman's column on "HSM2" in Friday's Scene section. And, catch up with my interview next Wednesday on Scene's Page 3 with Tom McKinley, costume designer for "High School Musical," both 1 and 2, on how he selected clothes for the cast.
