5 CLASSIC MUSICALS
Neal Justin, Star Tribune


So, you've watched the "High School Musical" movies so many times you know the names of the extras. You've even learned every dance step to the franchise's big brother, "Grease." Now what? Get an education in other high school musicals by checking out these five classics:

"Babes in Arms" (1939): Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland put on a really big show, with more than a little help from songwriters Rodgers & Hart.

"West Side Story" (1961): Romeo and Juliet try to hold on to love in the mean streets of New York City.

"Bye-Bye Birdie" (1963): Hot-to-trot kids, including Ann-Margret, put on a happy face f! or an Elvis-inspired rock star.

"A Hard Day's Night" (1964): The Beatles, barely out of their teenage years, do a note-by-note cover of the Marx Brothers in this singalong romp.

"Fame" (1980): This darker version of "High School Musical" is no less energetic and inspiring. It might not be appropriate for those 14 and younger.
