View Full Version : High School Musical on Ice Was Lots of Fun!

This past Friday night, I took my DD7, her best friend, her best friend's sister, and their mom and dad to see the very first live performance of High School Musical on Ice. Both girls are huge fans of both movies and sing and dance to them nonstop.

I wasn't sure what to expect since it was the very first show (at Tampa's St. Pete Times Forum at 7:30 PM), but I was pleasantly surprised. My DD's birthday was last month and we had a family party for her, but didn't really do any big gifts from mom and dad. I figured we could do something special just the two of us, so when my DH's HR Dept. sent out an email offering tickets to the ice show for $28, I went ahead and talked with the best friend's mom and we decided to treat the girls as a surprise. It was hard keeping it a secret, but they had no clue. The other mom is in a wheelchair (born with spina bifida, has 3 adopted kids, wonderful woman), so I requested wheelchair accessible seating and set the date on the calendar.

My DD and I left the house around 5:30 PM since I had to pick up the tickets at Will Call. She was a little confused when we passed Chuck E. Cheese (that's where she thought we were going) and got on the Crosstown Expressway. I told her we were going somewhere special and she would find out soon. When we pulled up to the St. Pete Times Forum, I pointed out the big banner on the side of the building advertising HSM on Ice and asked her if she'd like to go. She screamed and bounced up and down - I guess it was a good call!

We parked the car and went to the box office to pick up the tickets - Little scare when they couldn't find them, but they were in a separate box with the group ticket orders. Whew! We still had a while before the others were to arrive, so DD7 played in the inflatable obstacle course set up outside and got used to using the binoculars we had brought. About 7 PM, her best friend showed up and they started screaming and bouncing up and down together! We all headed to the disabled entrance (elevator) to go to our seats. When we got in the elevator, the usher looked at our tickets and said they weren't for wheelchair accessible seats. Grrr! We had to go to Guest Services and exchange them, which luckily only took about 10 minutes. Great service and easy process. We then all headed to our seats, which were in a box with chairs to sit in and an area for the wheelchairs. We were joined by a mom with two girls about 10 years old in wheelchairs who were wonderful and went to get some snacks before the show.

Tip - Wait until you get inside to see all the merchandise that's available rather than jumping at the limited stuff outside. They were selling a megaphone for $8 outside that my DD really wanted, but we waited until we got inside and got one with a huge bag of popcorn for the same $8. There were also popcorn buckets and various drink cups filled with snowcones and lemonade. Not a bad deal to get a drink and a souvenier at the same time! Also, if you can wait until after most of the crowd has left, take a walk and see if anyone left anything behind - We found a sipper cup (went straight in the dishwasher when we got home) and a popcorn bucket (just the bucket, no popcorn - That would be YUCK!). $18 worth of free souveniers - I don't know why anyone would leave them behind, but their loss was our gain!

Well, we settled into our seats and got ready for the show. Our box was at the far end of the Forum, about as far away as you could get, but in a straight line view of the ice. We had the binoculars to use to get close up looks at the skaters, but honestly, I was glad that we were far enough away that we couldn't see their faces. While they definitely fit the skin tones and general height/body shapes of the movie casts, they didn't look anything like them. I would have been distracted by that if we were sitting closer. From far away, you could still "imagine" that it was the actual cast from the movies. Plus, a side or up close view wouldn't have allowed us to see the whole stage. The seats were pretty good - Especially considering I only spent $28 each on them!

The show started and the music was LOUD! But, it was nothing compared to the nonstop screaming and yelling from all the kids. After a while, you just got used to it. They introduced all the characters and then began the retelling of HSM. Basically, each "movie" takes about an hour. A pre-recorded soundtrack plays with the original songs/singers from the movie with additional narrations added here and there. Mainly, the girl who played Kelsi did most of the talking outside of the actual script. The set was really creative, with a platform for skaters to climb stairs up and down and also an elevator to use. They brought out all kinds of props, including a basketball hoop (I cannot imagine how difficult it is to skate and dribble a basketball at the same time, but they did it), lockers, and a ladder. The segment featuring the Scholastic Decathalon, the basketball championship, and "Bop to the Top" was especially clever, with all three going on simultaneously. The choreography was pretty close to what they do in the movies, with added skate moves. They had passed out signs for the kids to hold up with all different sayings on them. Ours said "We're all in this together" and for the 2nd movie, "Fab u lus." They broke for intermission (about 15 minutes) and then came back to start the 2nd movie. It was lots of fun as well and again, the dance moves matched what you see onscreen. Neat things they did were pulling the "Sharpettes" around on beach floats during "Fabulus" (I hate misspelling that, but that's what Sharpay's car says!), using all the kitchen props (pots and pans) for "Work it Out" and even having Sharpay and Ryan drive around in a little pink car. The choreography to "I Don't Dance" was great - Of course, it's my favorite song from HSM, so I'm a little biased ... When Troy gets the fancy clothes to change into (the Sharpettes help him in the ice show), his shirt is ripped off and the screaming was deafening. While the guy playing Troy wasn't exactly Zac Efron, he wasn't too hard on the eyes, either. The 2nd movie ended with sparklers/pyro effects and a full cast bow.

It was a great show and a wonderful night to share with my daughter. The only "oops" was when one of the Sharpettes fell during the final dance number, "All for One." Other than that, the skating was perfect (to my novice eye). It was a great mix of spins, jumps, and even some partner skating and the dance moves from the movie. Kids all over the Forum were dancing and singing (including a lot of the moms!).

If you have any specific questions, I'd be glad to try to answer them. We didn't take any pictures because they had said no recording devices, but we probably could have since I saw other people taking them. However, I did enjoy watching the show "full screen" rather than through my digital camera's little 2.5" screen.

If you are going to one of the shows in your town, be prepared for lots of screaming, singing, and dancing. All in all, it was a great production and a super adaption of the movies onto the ice. Yeah!

Ooooh, that sounds fun! We're going in November. So how is it set up? We got close seats, at a corner of the ice I think. Is a lot of the action meant to see straight on, if that makes sense?

Glad you had such a good time! We just got presale tix for the HSM on Ice coming to our town(next spring) and I was wondering what others thought of it! A local high school performed HSM this summer and did a great job, so I knew the kids would like seeing it on ice. Happy B-day to your DD!!

Im glad to hear that you liked it so well. My 2 DD's (17, 8) will be going the first of October. We bought them tickets a while back, but I will have to stay at home as our baby is due the end of Sept. I would have loved to see it too, but guess I will hear lots when they get back from it.

I saw the show in Tampa too on opening night.

I know a couple of people that are touring with the East Coast cast. As a result, I have seen the show 5 times already. I went to the first ever live performance of any of the touring casts (there are 3. East Coast, West Coast, and International) in Lakeland, FL. I actually went and saw the show in Lakeland 4 times, and then went to see it with my friend and her sister in Tampa. The Tampa show was the first ever performance for the West Coast Cast. Both of the shows were pretty awesome although, I have to say, that it was kind of wierd seeing a different cast do it when I went to the first Tampa show.

If anyone has any questions about the show or anything as well, I'd be happy to answer them. I made a special video for one of the guys that I know that I posted on YouTube. When I find it, I'll post the lionk up here for you guys to watch it and comment on it. That is, if you feel like it.

My DD10 and I are going tomorrow night in Virginia!! She got the tickets for her birthday in April! It has been sold out for forever!!

Any idea on how long the show is? I seem to have become a chauffeur for my DS15 and his date that same night.

I was excited to hear it was both movies. We have been listening to the CDs all week!!

You're going to the Hampton, VA show?? That's the tour that my friend is in. You're going to get to see him skate. He's really pretty good. The whole cast is good too. The show lasts about 2 hours (with the 15 minute intermission).

Yeah. It is both movies. The first half of the show is all 1 (plus 2 brand new songs that were written specifically for the Stage Show version of HSM), and then the 2nd half is all from 2.

Do you have any more questions about anything in the show? I'd be happy to answer them for you.

My SIL lives in Little Rock and just got her DD tickets for the April show! Her birthday is in March so it is a perfect Bday gift!!

Here's hoping I don't go broke on souvenirs!

You might. haha. They have so many souvenirs at the show. There's really a wide variety there.

The show itsself is realyy good. I would have to say that the better numbers in the show are in the second half. I don't know why I think that, but I do. My favorite number from the show is "I Don't Dance". It was really really good, and when you go, you'll see why. My friend Adam keeps telling me to this day that he thinks the most challenging number from the show for him is Bop to the Top. It's always changing. But the coolest "trick" in the show comes at the end in "All For One" when this other guy named Adam (he is going to be skating in a light purple shirt and has black hair) does a backflip on the ice. He's in the East Coast touring cast too, so you'll deffinitely get to see that.

As for your daughter, school today will probably go by really fast for her. I know she'll love the show.

Where are your seats?
Is there anything you'd like to know about the show? I can answer them for you.


By the way, here's a video that I made for my friend Adam that I gave to him when I went to see him perform the second time. The performance pics are from opening night. tell me what you think.

A lot of the cast (well, atleast the East Coast cast) look like their character. Here's a graphic that M_I_C_K_E_Y made for me to put on a shirt that I am making for my friend Adam so you can see what I'm talking about.

Thanks so much for the review & pictures!

I'm so excited as DD is! We got the tickets for Chicago in January a LONG time ago -- I think when they came out as soon as I could get my hands on them.

We went to the concert and that was sold out! I wasn't going to jump through the hoops I did for that one again (we took friends).

I hope the seats will work out OK with being able to see. We are down on the floor section so if people are standing up it might make it more difficult to see. :scared1: We shall see what happens. We will have a good time no matter what though.

We thought about getting the same type seats we got for the concert because DD didn't want floor, she wanted a bit elevated. We debated for this one too but thought being an ice show, floor would be good. I'm hoping that wasn't a mistake now.

This time it will just be DD & myself. She used to do figure skating, so loves to go see ice shows, add HSM to it and :love: PLUS she kept saying she wants to see if/how in the world they would do basketballs on ice.

I did ask her if she wanted to see any of the videos that are out or a surprise & she said "surprise"!

I do want to make sure we get a t-shirt this time around -- long story short we weren't able to get a t-shirt at the concert. I'm assuming they are selling t-shirts right? Don't they *always* sell t-shirts at these things? :lmao:

cinderella123
09-28-2007, 08:07 PM
Yes. They have lots of TShirts. They have all these different colored ones that they sell that say "High School Musical: The ICe Tour" on them. They sell the infamous "I Majored in Vacation" shirt that Chad wears in the 2nd movie. They also have black High School Musical: The Ice Tour jackets that are pretty cool. They're child sized. From what I remember, the sizes start at girls' size 10-12 and they deffinitely go up to 18 - 20. I'm 18 years old, and I bought a size 18 - 20 jacket and it fits me perfectly. They've got other stuff like headsets, pom poms, megaphones, cups, programs (although I wouldn't buy the program if you're looking for pics from the Ice Tour), dolls, and a few more things.

Do you want to know how they do the basketballs? I can certainly tell you if you want.

Any more questions?

Any more questions?

They have DOLLS? What dolls do they have? Are they the same Barbie type ones we see in the stores or are they something unique to the ice show? Yes, I know my DD is 13 almost 14 but she went and spent her own money on the Barbie dolls & is asking Santa for the other ones (she only had enough for 1). Cool about the jackets -- how much do they run $$ wise?

I learned my lesson a long time ago with NOT buyin DD a "Boo" doll when they had Monsters, Inc. on ice. I thought maybe we could find something similar since we were heading down to Disney and we never have found anything like it. I didn't have enough $$ to buy it at the time or I probably would have (we went with the Girl Scout troop so it was a different set-up). She STILL reminds me of that Boo doll to this day since we haven't ever found one and that was *years* ago. At least she gave me a pass on the concert shirts because I would have bought that but they didn't have the one she wanted in her size. I will have extreme mommy guilt if somehow we don't at *least* get a t-shirt from this show & I will probably end up with other things too just because well....just because. :lmao:

I went and watched more You-tube videos and saw the basketball number although if there is a "trick" to it that you know I would love to know about it! ;) I know it's got to be hard to manage those things on ice.

cinderella123
09-28-2007, 08:52 PM
Yes. They had a doll. It's a barbie doll type doll. Nothing like a soft sort of something doll. It kind of looked like a Sharpay doll, but it was wearing either (i think, atleast) a gym outfit or a cheerleading uniform. It wasn't like the ones I had seen in the store before.

I also remember them having these glittery hats that had

The jackets are $45. But they're really comfortable. They could have been more expensive (considering the fact that it is Disney and how popular High School Musical is).

The basketballs drop from the ceiling. Did you know that? But if you sit there and watch the video, you'll notice that they don't really bounce the ball that much, and when they do, it doesn't really go too high (except for the beginning when it initially comes down). That's because if the ball is cold, something happens with energy (or something like that) to make it not bounce that high. The bounces weren't as low as they could have been, but then again, it was a really short number. If it was hotter, they probably would have bounced it more. But if that happened, then the ice might have melted. haha

The program is $12, but I wouldn't buy it if I were you.

By the way, where exactly are your floor seats? I have had floor seats to all of the High School Musical: THe Ice TOur shows that I've been to so far (one of which I payed for myself, and the rest I got from my friend). I can probably give you a pretty good idea of where they are and how they're set up.

Anything else about the show you want to know?

:thumbsup2 We just got home from the ice show and we had a great time!! We even got out of the parking lot in record time!!

We had seats in the 2nd row in the first section on the side. They were very good! My DD kept saying "Thank you! This was a great idea!" We were seated a little early and the usher gave the girls "Fabulos" signs. I did not see any other signs. I think I spent about $50 before we ever even sat down!!

The skaters were very good. The skater playing Gabrella fell a couple times but covered very nicely. I can't imagine how difficult the whole thing was so I can't say anything bad about her falling. The Ryan skater played his role to a tee. He is my favorite character in the movie anyway!! The part when they strip Troy of his shirt had everyone screaming. I am sure there were some Moms screaming too!!

It was a great night. They had a ton of t-shirts and Barbie dols in wildcat cheerleader costumes. The one thing all the girls (mine included) had to have was this head set with a fake microphone. They all had them and you could hear them all singing. They never missed a word!! The headset was $8 and you could get cotton candy with a hat for $10. Those are two great keepsakes!! We of course had to have a program and our picture taken with a cut out of Troy!

Cinderella123, tell you friends they did an awesome job!! It was well worth it!!

I'm glad you liked the show. I will be sure to tell Adam (Ryan) when he calls me tomorrow how much you liked the show and how well you think he did. Adam is in the program. He's also in the video on the High School Musical: The Ice Tour website. What'd you think of the guy (who's name also happens to be Adam) that did the backflip on the ice in "All For One"? I think that that was pretty amazing. Can you imagine that that Adam who did the flip is only 18 years old?

I've also talked to Brad once. He's pretty cool.

What else did you like?

Thank you!! I can't wait to see the backflip!!! (just edited to add -- I'll probably have a heart attack watching that, while holding my breathe until it's done! due to our background with knowing about the falls in both skating & gymnastics!) DD is going to go nuts! She's a gymnast too -- so basically ice skating & tumbling added together can't get better than that! That's one reason she gave up skating for gymnastics (well..not really we couldn't afford to do both & she kept being good in both, so I had to make a decision. I was *hoping* she would get tired of one but that never happened. She does keep asking to go back occasionally but she doesn't have time to add anything more to her schedule!).

Our seats are in section 8.

There's a small section (section 2) right in front of yours. But pretty much any seat that you sit in for this show is a good seat. In all of the shows I've been to so far, even the ice seats were on a little bit of a level.

I wouldn't tell her about the backflip just yet or get too excited about it. I was just thinking and just realized that the East Coast cast probably won't be in the Chicago show. That'll probably be the West Coast cast. The reason why I say that is because thay same weekend of the Rosemont show, there's a show in Syracuse, NY, and the East Coast cast will most likely be there. No one in the West Coast cast does a backflip. I know that because in addition to seeing 5 shows of the East Coast cast, I have also been to one of the West coast tour shows in Tampa. They are doing a few over here before they head over to LA next week.

Just thought I should let you know of that before hand. Jope I didn't rain on your parade too much.

IJust thought I should let you know of that before hand. Jope I didn't rain on your parade too much.
:sad1:

No raining on my parade. That's OK. I just thought it would be awesome to see but since I had no idea it was even in there in the first place for any show, no issues. I'm not telling DD anything since she doesn't want to know. I did tell her about the dolls, etc... but since she doesn't want to actually see any sneak peak videos that are out now, I didn't think to tell her about that.

On the plus side, if there is no backflip I don't have to have a heart attack, hold breathe make sure the flip gets landed with no issues ;)

haha. Yeah. You're right about that. Although, he has landed the back flip every time beautifully.

There's a video of Adam (not the Adam I know that's Ryan) doing the backflip here: http://www.icechaletrinks.com/graphics/adam_backflip.mov (http://www.chaleticerinks.com/graphics/adam_backflip.mov)

I just found this video on youtube. It's an advertisement for the show at Madison Square Garden (West Coast cast), but the skaters in the video are actually the East Coast cast. That means that Adam is the Ryan in this video.

It gives you a good idea of what the show is all about.

Are there any discount codes out there? I tried the ones on the mousesavers site and they didn't work for me, anyone else get them to work recently?

They now have a new Disney 365 segment of High School Musical: The Ice Tour. The cast that's in it is the East Coast cast. I saw the new segment for the first time 2 days ago. You should keep an eye out for it if you haven't seen it already.

No. It's nothing that loud. The music is louder than the pyrotechnics in my opinion. It's a little bit of fireworks and stuff, but it's nothing as loud as the 4th of July Fireworks.

I like the cast that's doing the Richmond show the best. My friend Adam is "Ryan" in that show, and he's amazing. I talked to another lady on here that went to the Hampton, VA show (he was in that show), and she said "That Ryan skater played hios role to a T"
In fact, I think it might have been earlier on in this thread.

Hope you like the show. It's a great one. Let me know how you like it after you see it.
