High School Musical

Trivia: After the credits, there is an enjoyable one minute scene with Sharpay and Zeke.

Trivia: One of the basketball players (number 44) choreographed all the dances.

Trivia: In the cafeteria, all the milk cartons had a lemon and lime drink in them. The reason for this is that if they were filled with real milk, it would have turned sour during filming.

Trivia: In the scene Mrs. Darbus is introduced into the movie, Troy was talking about "pink jelly". At that point, he was told to make anything up in those few seconds.

Trivia: In this film (unlike HSM2), Zac Efron's (Troy) singing voice is actually Andrew Seeley's singing. It is Seeley who sings "Get'cha Head in the Game" in its entirety and the reprise of "What I've Been Looking For." The only parts that are actually Zac's vocals are: the first four lines of "Start of Something New," the singing on Gabriella's balcony, and the very first sentence of "Breaking Free." The producers wanted a tenor, which Zac is not.

Trivia: The scene where Troy goes to Gabriella's house and they do the Romeo and Juliet style scene had to be cut short in filming because fireworks were going off at a nearby wedding reception.

Continuity mistake: After Ryan and Sharpay's initial audition, when Ryan tells the girl not to be discouraged because the theater needs fans, the blue janitor's cart is visible in the doorway. When Troy and Gabriella help Kelsi pick up the sheet music, the janitor's cart has vanished from that doorway, but when Ms. Darbus comes back to tell Troy and Gabriella about the call-backs, the janitor's cart has reappeared. (There are two doorways that have green exit signs overhead, at the back wall opposite the stage. Troy leaves the cart at the right doorway.) (00:33:40 - 00:35:40)

Question: Why would Gabriella even audition for a musical if she knew from the start that she is afraid to sing with people staring at her? Doesn't she realize if she gets the part an entire audience will be watching?

Answer: Well at the start she was just doing it for fun and because Troy was doing it. But as they went on she just wanted to get the role because it would have showed the school that she wasn't the freaky geeky nerd girl. So she put out all the thoughts of the audience till they actually had to be there.
