Trivia

Goofs

A number of the scenes at James Madison High School show an open air cafeteria, with tables and lines for serving windows. There is no way a high school in Indiana would have an open air cafeteria like this, it is clear it was filmed at a high school in a warmer climate. See more »

Quotes

Principal Hawkins: Straight people like Broadway too.
Dee Dee Allen: I've heard that. Always thought it was a fairy tale.

If you're a fan of cheesy "come together" musicals, you'll like this. It's very wholesome.
