    "If you want to relive your high school days then it's best to do it in the most theatrical/musical way. Who wouldn't want to relive their years of going to class or falling in love through musical songs. It is the best way to relive high school memories. I know that I personally relive all my high school memories as if I sand them all. High School Musical is a great way to do that on screen."
