For the first time in years at Ensign Intermediate School, the play's the thing. The Newport Beach campus, which will present Disney's "High School Musical" on Friday and Saturday, hadn't put on a theater production since its last drama teacher retired half a decade ago. Moreover, with the Robins Hall theater closed at nearby Newport Harbor High School, the school didn't have ready access to a stage. This year, though, three parent groups — the PTA, the school foundation and the Navigators, a fathers' support group — banded together to raise $4,500 for a show in the school gymnasium.
