Where to Find the Stars of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series in the World of Disney

By Tori Hunt

While many of us have grown to love the actors in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series from their glorious music and witty characters, you may have noticed a few familiar faces amongst the cast. Despite most of the cast having been teenagers when starting out on the show, which premiered in 2019, they are no strangers to the Disney family. As we get ready to follow our favorite Wildcats to Camp Shallow Lake in season three of the hit series, debuting on Disney+ on July 27, we’ve assembled a roundup of where you can find some of your favs from past and the upcoming season in other Disney offerings.

Olivia Rodrigo stands against a dark wooden wall. Her long brown hair is draped over her right shoulder and she is wearing a red, pink, white, and purple diamond pattered romper and black tights.

Olivia Rodrigo
On top of balancing performing as Nini on High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Olivia Rodrigo has become a Grammy®-nominated singer-songwriter behind the triple-platinum Geffen Records album SOUR. Fans can stream the documentary OLIVIA RODRIGO: driving home 2 u (a SOUR film), which chronicles her musical journey including the creation of her top-selling debut album on Disney+.

Corbin Bleu stands in a black t-shirt, black pants and a black leather jeacket with his arms stretched out on either of his sides. He is grinning and has short dark hair.

Corbin Bleu
For fans of the original High School Musical film trilogy, Bleu is known for his iconic role as Chad Danforth, the right-hand man of Troy Bolton (Zac Efron). Fourteen years after his character graduated from East High, Bleu makes an appearance in season three of HSMTMTS playing himself as he leads the cast in a production of Frozen. Outside of his High School Musical roles, fans can watch Bleu in Disney’s Jump In! and as a guest star on Hannah Montana. He also voiced the character of Coltrane on the hit animated series Phineas and Ferb.

Matt Cornett leans against a dark wooden wall. He is wearing a teal blue tank top with a brown design and green bottoms. His right arm grasps his right shoulder.

Matt Cornett
Matt Cornett became a sensation of HSMTMTS, starring as Eric James Caswell. Like his character, Cornett is also very ambitious. Outside of his role as a water polo-playing drama kid, he stars in Disney’s Zombies 3 as A-Lan, an other-worldly alien complete with bright blue hair.

Curly brown-haired Joshua Bassett leans with his right shoulder against a dark wooden wall. He is wearing a dark blue T-shirt and gray pants. Both of his hands are tucked into his pockets.

Joshua Bassett
Fans quickly grew to love Joshua Bassett’s funny guy character Ricky Bowen, on High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. Bassett went on to co-star in the Disney+ series Better Nate Than Ever. He performs as Nate Foster’s standoffish older brother Anthony in the adaptation of the acclaimed novel written and directed by HSMTMTS creator and executive producer Tim Federle

Renée is wearing a teal leopard print long-sleeve shirt, a multi-colored belt and a button-up denim skirt. She is standing with her arms close to her sides. Her hair is styled in a natural light-brown afro with a clip on her left side. She is wearing large, thin silver hoop earings and is smiling directly into the camera.

Dara Reneé
Dara Reneé plays Kourtney on HSMTMTS and she has quite an impressive career with Disney. In the 2018 adaption of Freaky Friday, Reneé brought to life the role of Savannah, the high school’s mean girl and antagonist of Ellie (Cozi Zuehlsdorff). In 2021, she performed in Disney Princess Remixed- An Ultimate Princess Celebration.  She has also starred in select episodes of black-ish and Hulu’s Grey’s Anatomy. Reneé currently hosts Disney’s Magic Bake-Off on Disney+.

Sofia Wylie has her arms crossed over her stomach tilted to her right. She is wearing long braids, a woven pink and white top over a pink bikini top and gray bottoms.

Sofia Wylie
Sofia Wylie is well-known in the Disney universe, having starred in major films and television shows. Before playing Gina Porter on HSMTMTS, Wylie got her big break on Disney’s series Andi Mack playing Andi’s best friend, Buffy Driscoll. She has even voiced Riri Williams, a child prodigy doubling as the Super Hero Ironheart, in the animated series Marvel Rising: Battle of the Bands and Marvel Rising: Heart of Iron. 

Donnelly has a medium length curled blonde hair over her shoulders. She is facing her right, while her face is looking directly at the camera. She is wearing a white blouse with red strawberries and light pink heart shaped earrings.

Meg Donnelly
Disney regular Meg Donnelly joins the cast of HSMTMTS this season, as Val, a confident and funny college student and longtime camper-turned-counselor-in-training. Donnelly has been a major part of several Disney productions, including the ZOMBIES franchise where she plays the role of half-alien/half-human Addison Wells. Donnelly led two spinoff series based off of her ZOMBIES character, ZOMBIES: Addison’s Moonstone Mystery as well as ZOMBIES: Addison’s Monster Mystery. She also guest starred as Priscilla Preston on an episode of Bunk’d.

Jason Earles is squatting next to a golden retriever on his right. He is wearing a white and grey paisley patterned button-up short sleeve shirt with a muted khaki underneath. His hari is light brown and his eyes are looking to his left in a glimpse of shock.

Jason Earles
Season three of HSMTMTS also features a familiar face to Disney fans—Jason Earles, who guest stars as Dewey Wood, the stone-faced, killjoy of a Camp Director. Earles is best known for his role as Jackson Stuart (or, should we say, Bucky Kentucky) on Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana. After the hit show ended, Earles joined the cast of Kickin’ It as Rudy Gillespie and voiced Hamster Boy and Kevin on the animated television series Fish Hooks.
