Advanced Warning: KAAC's High School Musical

I have to admit, the whole High School Musical thingie totally passed me by (which is probably a good thing, seeing that I'm thirty-mumble-mumble years old).  So this really isn't my bag.  But it sure is someone's bag given the popularity of the movies and now the stage musical.

Kids Acting Against Cancer (KAAC) is an impressive local charity founded and staffed by some really impressive local kids.  (Seriously, bitch all you want about teenagers, but I am grateful every day to work with young people and to see the kindness and empathy they're capable of).

As much as I wish I could kind of just give this show a plug on the blog and let it happily pass by, I think I'll have to attend.  Not only is KAAC a great cause that I want to support, I can personally attest to the fact that the cast features some truly talented young actors.

Their website is woefully out-of-date, but here's the skinny on their upcoming production:
