  • Fridge Logic: Wait, a performing arts high school, and not ONE gay kid?!
  • Hollywood Pudgy: Mabel, depending on the actress. She can be any size, but the point is, she's fat for a dancer.
  • Ho Yay: "Can't Keep it Down" is full of it. In some productions, Nick and Joe Vegas Ho Yay it up during the Romeo and Juliet scene with Serena.
    • Not to mention that Serena is half-convinced Nick is gay.

  • Tear Jerker:
    • "In L.A" for Carmen.
    • "These Are My Children" for Ms. Sherman.
    • The full version of "Bring on Tomorrow" when Schlomo dedicates the performance to Carmen, who's just died of a drug overdose.
