These days, Disney has all but deserted the furry forest critters seen in “Bambi” to pursue a more lucrative and contemporary subject: tweens. In recent years, the company has begun to dominate the live-action tween-focused entertainment realm, and leading its assault is “High School Musical,” a sunshiny “Grease”-type story that has become a phenomenon. After a record-breaking cable debut on the Disney Channel last January (and many reprisals), the show’s DVD and accompanying album have smashed sales records for almost a year. Tonight, the song-and-dance spectacle comes to town as part of a live concert tour. The show begins at 7 p.m. at the Verizon Center (601 F St. NW). Tickets, $38.50 to $58.50, are available through Ticketmaster. For more information: log onto www.verizoncenter.com or call 202-661-5000.
