‘High School Musical 3’ sing-along version hits Irish cinemas

After just three weeks at the top of the box offices, the sing-along version of High School Musical 3 will be rolled out this Friday, November 14th, in selective Irish cinemas.

It’s the first time Walt Disney Pictures has released a sing-along version of a movie in theatres nationwide but the decision follows a modern trend set by “Hairspray” in 2007 and “Mamma Mia,” which was based on Abba tunes, this past summer.

“We felt that the (‘High School Musical 3’) movie’s huge base of enthusiastic fans would really embrace a singalong version,” said Mark Zoradi, president of Walt Disney Motion Pictures Group (US).

The third instalment in the money-spinning song and dance teen franchise has already earned more than $146 million at the worldwide box office since its October release.

Sing-Along High School Musical 3 plays exclusively at Cineworld; Movies@Dundrum; Movies@Swords; IMC, Dun Laoighre SGC Dungarvan and Gate Cinema, Cork from Friday November 14th.
