Inspired by the Disney movie of the same name, seasons one and two of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series are set at East High School, the setting and filming location of the original movies.
The first season follows members of the drama club and their faculty advisors as they work their way to opening night of their school’s first-ever production of High School Musical: The Musical.
The recent second outing culminated in a performance of Beauty and the Beast. Show-mances blossom, old friendships are tested while new ones are made, rivalries flare, and lives are changed forever as these students discover the transformative power that only high school theatre can provide.
For now the first two seasons are available to stream online on Disney+ here.
