The OG Cast Of ‘High School Musical’ Are Reuniting For A Disney Singalong TV Show
The original cast of High School Musical will reunite for a special Disney Family Singalong this week.
The special virtual show will see stars including Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale reuniting for a performance of 'We're All In This Together' *and* Zac Efron will also be involved.
The show, hosted by Ryan Seacrest, will air on ABC on Thursday 16th April at 8pm EST (but will be available to watch on YouTube and social media afterwards).
The programme will also include a series of announcements to raise awareness of Feeding America, in a bid to help those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This week, it was confirmed that among the East High Wildcats returning for the performance will be Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Lucas Grabeel, Monique Coleman *and* Zac Efron, although it's believed Zac - who is reported to have recorded a video message for the special - won't be as involved as some of the other stars.
Director Kenny Ortega told Deadline: "We couldn't reach Zac until late but when we did, he immediately jumped in, of course."
