* BreakingTheFourthWall: Jessie J's opening number blows it apart with dynamite, as she takes the viewers on a backstage tour, to dressing rooms (in one of these, Hudgens recorded [[https://www.instagram.com/p/BBOSGsxzCvT/?taken-by=vanessahudgens this video]] that she immediately uploaded to Instagram), through a trailer that had sketches of the various sets being used all over the walls (Carlos [=PenaVega=], who played Kenickie, also recorded an Instagram video as Jessie J passed through), and around the set on the Warner Bros. lot while singing the opening song. As she walks on to a platform in front of the school entrance to finish the film, a crew member can be seen in the background, collecting umbreallas from cast members. Later, "We Go Together" starts with the cast singing the song to the Steadicam as they make their way to the studio lot carts. During the "Born to Hand Jive" reprise that closed the show, Mario Lopez can be seen within the group with his phone out, making a video.

* AudienceParticipation: The theater-in-the-round setup posits the audience as various kinds of crowds around the characters. The downside is that they were clearly instructed to not give any kind of reactions outside the musical numbers, which kills a lot of the jokes.

* AudienceParticipation: The theater-in-the-round setup posits the audience as various kinds of crowds around the characters. The downside is that they were clearly instructed to not give any kind of reactions outside the musical numbers, which kills a lot of the jokes. You could also tell the difference between extras in the crowd and audience members simply by looking at their clothing; a lot of the studio audience wore modern-day clothing.

** Sandy, in order to avoid lots of implications that the film is [[BeAWhoreToGetYourMan infamous for]]. She leaves Danny at the prom not because Sonny pushed her away, but because she was afraid her parents would see her on TV. She told her parents that she was studying, since they never allow her to go to dances. When Sandy and Danny make-up at the movies, Sandy admits that she has always wanted to be free from her parent's control. With this backstory in-mind, Sandy's decision to take on a "bad girl" appearance at the end of the show is clearly not due to the pressure from her friends to fit in, but instead due to Sandy's newfound confidence to be who she has always felt like she was on the inside, NOT who her parents (or friends, for that matter) want her to be. This is emphasized by Sandy's discussion with Rizzo right before the makeover, where Rizzo makes sure that this is something Sandy wants to do before they go through with it. All that, plus a confrontation with Patty Simcox after witnessing Patty spreading negative gossip about Rizzo.

All that, plus a confrontation with Pre-made-over Sandy also has enough nerve to confront Patty Simcox after witnessing Patty spreading negative gossip about Rizzo.
