As juvenile as it is, I am a HUGE fan of HSM!!! Imagine my thrill when my friend from Stages, Inc. emailed me that they're holding auditions for the local staging!!!

I really hope they get good (if not better) performers!

I can't wait!!!

Oliver!!! Ay, oo nga! All better for a fan like me! Can watch different versions! Gee, I watched all the stagings of Rent here! And HSM is just so close to it as my most fave musical.

Gibbs: Yeah, admittedly, we can do so much better. Especially for Troy's part :D

Dear Mr. Cadiz,

Please remove your logo of High School Musical from this post immediately. Ateneo Blue Repertory has been advised by Music Theater International and Disney to use proper promotional materials, which does not include the logo which you are using for this post.

They have already notified us regarding your website. We can provide you with the official logo when it comes this December.

Apologies, but we must comply with the rules given us by Music Theater International and Disney. Otherwise, rest assured they will assert their legal right and take action against us.

dear mr. mangahas,

thank you for your message. however, let me clarify. i did not put that logo there on my own. it was on the advice and guidance of mr. hendri go, who is co-producing your production of 'high school musical.' he requested my help to disseminate news about your upcoming auditions, that's why it's here on my blog. i am aware of disney's stipulation to use only pre-approved marketing materials, because mr. go has REQUESTED ME TO USE THE PRESENT LOGO instead of the first one i placed here (the one showing the lead stars of the movie) which i promptly took down when he said it was the wrong image to use (an image, by the way, that he also provided me). he assured me when he gave the present logo that this is already the right image. so which is which? i suggest you and mr. go thresh this out, because i just provided space in my blog to try to help your group. in the meantime, i shall take down the logo, and i shall also talk to mr. go. in the event it is established that what i did use up to today was indeed the correct logo for your promotions, may i make the small suggestion that you visit my blog once again and post a final clarification from your part regarding this matter, just to make it clear to visitors of this blog that the image in question was, in fact, used with express permission from someone in your group. thank you.

Dear Mr. Cadiz,

I apologize if this has caused you any inconvenience. There was an error on my part as there was information saying that we'd get the proper logos for dissemination later on.

This was a case of overzealousness of my part as we've had to monitor other groups use of the (improper) logo and Disney and MTI did warn us about this in other correspondence.

Blue Repertory is very grateful for the support you have shown us and we would be very happy to see you and your website do well. Again, apologies if this caused you any inconvenience or unpleasantness.
