I’ve watched the movie a million times. I know the words to all the songs. I have even been seen standing in front of the TV, learning the dance steps—and I’m not a 12-year-old girl. I’m the mom. It is not hard to get caught up in the phenomenon known as High School Musical. And now, the excitement continues on ice. My 10-year-old Sofie, my mom and I went to see “High School Musical: The Ice Tour,” at the Allstate Arena. By my estimate, 70 percent of the audience was 8- to 12-year-old girls. And those girls, every one of them, were screaming, dancing and singing along with every song.The skaters are young, cute and talented. The show moves along at a quick pace, with the original movie during Act I and HSM 2 during Act II. Piano player Kelsi narrates in between scenes to keep the audience up to speed. With or without your pink Prada purse, this show is Fab-U-Lus!“High School the Musical: The Ice Tour” is playing at the United Center, 1901 W. Madison St., Chicago, from Feb. 1-10.
