The Real High School from Disney’s ‘High School Musical’ Was Damaged in a Flood
It's a sad day for Wildcats everywhere. Last week a massive rainstorm in Salt Lake City caused flooding around the city and damaged several businesses and homes, including a building that is very important to Disney fans from the mid-2000s.
The school used in Disney's "High School Musical" was damaged in the flood. It’s a real high school, East High School, and it’s under about a foot of water, including the iconic gym and the cafeteria.
The photos were posted on Instagram by cast member KayCee Stroh. She captured our sentiment exactly. Such a bummer to see the space under water! It's estimated the flooding caused $2-$3 million in damage.
You can see the cafeteria during the performance of 'Status Quo'. The cast danced on those tables and Sharpay and Ryan scowled over the school kids from the balcony.
It's such a shame to see this flooding, not only as a Disney fan, but also because this is a real high school approaching the first day of school. No word on if the damage will be repaired in time for the kids to get back to the classroom.
