Have you watched “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” on Disney+ yet? Alicia Brancato tells you everything you need to know about this new show starring Joshua Bassett, Olivia Rodrigo, Matt Cornett, Kate Reinders and many more.

The show starts off with students attending East High in Salt Lake City, Utah — the school where the Disney movie series “High School Musical” took place. A new theater teacher gets hired by the school and she has one goal: to have the theater department put on “High School Musical.” As the show unfolds, there are relationships between cast members, secrets between faculty and staff members, and a LOT of singing.

The original series was added to Disney+ after the streaming service was launched on Nov. 12, 2019.
