High School Musical Party - would this idea work?

For dd1's 7th b'day in a couple of weeks - we didn't want a huge party and were going to have a day out but I can't think of anything suitable <pathetic emoticon>

and looking at some old threads here I wondered if this idea would work:
She loves HSM2 so I thought we could have a small film party at the school I teach at, as all the classrooms have big screens, speakers, etc. We could show HSM2 with the song words showing so they can join in; invite only about 8-10 kids and they can dress up, eat popcorn and have enough space to dance about during the film.

They could have instructions/props like they do at the singalong sound of music and rocky horror shows - like booing when Sharpay comes on or throwing confetti when Troy and Gabriella are together, etc (I don;t know - help me out here!)

and then at the end they can eat 'american' food like decorated cupcakes and ice cream, have a HSM2 party bag and then bugger off home. Would 8 be a good number - don't want it getting out of hand. We'd also be taking her and a friend for a meal that evening.

rubbish idea or could work? (if my school says it's ok!)

In Woolies yesterday, I found a HSM2 CD Dance Party mix for £5.

That sounds amazing, can I come? blush Your DD is very lucky that you're going to do this for her!

you can get hsm plates/bunting etc as well if you wanted it

dd1 (who is only 3.11) would love that party!!

Don't know why I didn't think of this before - minimum fuss and outlay all round <lazy cow>

Any ideas about other ways the kids can join in the film, e.g. shaking their pompoms at different parts, etc?

Even think I could do this the actual day of her birthday which is on a wednesday, so I could do it after school - 4.30 to 6.30 maybe? That way the caretaker won't have to open and close the rooms especially for me. Wonder if school will have a health and safety/insurance issue with kids that won't be from our school?

any other ideas for me?
