High School Musical

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

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

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.

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.

Revealing mistake: When Troy says "I'll sing with her," Ms. Darbus turns around "in response" to his voice before he even says anything.

Chad Danforth: Have you ever seen Michael Crawford on a cereal box?
Troy Bolton: Who's Michael Crawford?
Chad Danforth: Exactly my point! He was the Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. Now, my mom, she's seen that musical 27 times and she put Michael Crawford's picture in our refrigerator. Not on it, in it. So, my point is if you play basketball, you're gonna end up on a cereal box. If you sing in musicals, you're gonna end up in my mom's refrigerator.
Troy Bolton: Why would she put his picture in her refrigerator?
Chad Danforth: One of her crazy diet ideas! Look, I don't have time to understand the female mind, Troy!
