Bottom Line: Musical web series are a rare breed, and finding one with songs that are actually catchy is rarer still. Taryn Southern, cast and crew have done an amazing job showing us what High School Musical might have looked like if it were rated PG-13.
Welcome to Private High…where sex and drugs are “always cool.” It’s the middle of senior year and shy Sandra Smith is the new girl in town. As if her virginal status isn’t horrifying enough, things go from bad to worse when Sandra suddenly experiences the joys of womanhood…in first period.
Created by and starring Taryn Southern.

It’s wacky, raunchy and did I forget to mention — it’s also a musical? Since the Internet loves catchy songs and funny videos, Private High Musical is a near perfect example of how to take a standard high-school procedural and make it watchable again. (Style 4.5)
In some of the episodes the sound, especially during the musical numbers, leaves something to be desired. Overall, however, it is a well shot and well edited series. (Polish 4)
If you’ve ever wanted a version of High School Musical that might actually make you laugh, this is it. (Novelty 5)
