During the D23 Expo early this month, the studio excited Disney Channel fans when it was announced that the fourth season of High School Musical: The Musical – The Series would include a storyline where High School Musical 4: The Reunion was being filmed at East High with the show’s high schooler going cast being extras in the meta movie.
Alyson Reed played East High’s theater teacher Ms. Darbus, Bart Johnson played the father of Zac Efron’s Troy Bolton and Kaycee Stroh was a supporting character named Martha Cox, who revealed “hip-hop is my passion!” in the “Stick To The Status Quo” number. While it’ll be exciting to see these High School Musical original cast members back at East High for the “filming” of the fourth movie in the franchise within the show, it really won’t be the same without the movies’ brightest stars and leads.
As production for Season 4 begins, the returning original cast has been revealed with some key stars missing.
Monique Coleman and Bleu previously reunited for Lifetime’s A Christmas Dance Reunion last year after playing Chad and Taylor.
