“High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” Marathon Event Announced
High School Musical fans will be excited to hear that for one night only we can re-visit our favorite East High School drama students during a season one marathon of “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series”! So make sure you tune into the Disney Channel on SATURDAY, MAY 8, beginning at 5:00 p.m. EDT/PDT in advance of the hit series’ season two premiere on Friday, May 14, on Disney+.
The break-free, one-time-only marathon will also feature sneak peeks of season two, a new musical number performed by Nini and Ricky, special messages from and fun facts about the cast, fan-favorite “Buspool Karaoke” music videos and much more.
The cast revealed their favorite season one moments in a fun featurette:
Inspired by the pop culture sensation “High School Musical,” the series was created and is executive-produced by Tim Federle and stars Olivia Rodrigo (“Nini”), Joshua Bassett (“Ricky”), Sofia Wylie (“Gina”), Matt Cornett (“E.J.”), Larry Saperstein (“Big Red”), Julia Lester (“Ashlyn”), Dara Reneé (“Kourtney”), Frankie Rodriguez (“Carlos”), Joe Serafini (“Seb”), Mark St. Cyr (“Mr. Mazzara”) and Kate Reinders (“Miss Jenn”).
Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Branded Television, said, “For everyone who was there at the birth of ‘High School Musical’ on Disney Channel 15 years ago, this is like a homecoming! And whether you’ll be experiencing the new series for the very first time or just want to relive the drama and magic of season one ahead of the season two premiere, viewers will get to see it on the platform where it all began … bet on it!”
The 10-episode series picks up nearly 15 years after the original movie has become a global sensation, at the real-life location where it all began: East High. It follows a group of students as they count down to opening night of their school’s first-ever production of “High School Musical.” Show-mances blossom, friendships are tested and new ones are made, rivalries flare and lives are changed forever as these young people discover the transformative power that only a high school drama club can provide.
The series features original songs and acoustic “rehearsal-room” reinterpretations of songs from the original “High School Musical,” providing the soundtrack for an unlikely group of theater kids who learn “we’re all in this together” when it comes to pulling off an against-all-odds opening night.
Season one of “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” has been “Certified Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes as measured by a consensus of reviews by top critics and audience members and was awarded a GLAAD Media Award in 2020. The season one soundtrack is also available on all streaming platforms: https://disneymusic.co/HSM.
