Disney's wildly successful "High School Musical" is scoring points with kids and parents alike with its positive message. The made-for-TV movie, which debuted a year ago, has spawned a live show that has been a veritable cash cow for its producers.
Deb Martou, a Waltham resident, brought her 8 year-old daughter to the show, which recently played in Manchester N.H. Martou estimates she's spent more than $500 on various "High School Musical" memorabilia, the Hartford Courant reports.
And the kids like to think that the story has an element of truth to it.
Rebecca Fainberg, 16, also of Waltham, exclaimed that the show is "the greatest thing ever."
