They’re All in This Together! ‘High School Musical’ Cast Members Have a Mini Reunion in Paris

As Zac Efron says in High School Musical 3: Senior Year, “Once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat.” Clearly, former members of the HSM cast are still living by that mantra.

This weekend, a few stars from the hit Disney Channel musical series had a reunion in Paris, where they assembled for a Dream It convention. Titled “Back to the Musical World 2,” this convention celebrated the work of Kenny Ortega, who directed and choreographed the HSM series, as well as other hit movies, like Newsies and The Cheetah Girls 2.

Ortega shared a snap to his Instagram account, where we can see that four of the original cast members, including Vanessa Hudgens (Gabriella Montez), Corbin Bleu (Chad Danforth), Lucas Grabeel (Ryan Evans) and Bart Johnson (Jack Bolton), all reunited for the special event.

@dreamitcon #paris #hsmforever,” Ortega wrote in his caption.

Meanwhile, Drew Seeley, who filled Efron's place as Troy Bolton for the High School Musical: The Concert Tour, also made a post to his account, writing, “Like no time has passed. #HSM reunion in Paris.”

Although the squad was missing a few of the other stars, like Efron, Ashley Tisdale (Sharpay Evans) and Monique Coleman (Taylor McKessie), we loved seeing the rest of the actors back together in one room.

Despite his absence, Efron certainly hasn't forgotten about his High School Musical days. In fact, the 35-year-old recently shared a post to his Instagram that showed him stopping by East High (the school where the HSM movies were filmed) and he captioned it, “Don’t you… Forget about me.”

Only a few weeks before Efron, his ex-girlfriend, Hudgens, made her own stop to East High, and she quoted one of her lines from the first movie in her post, writing, “Do you remember in kindergarten how you'd meet a kid and know nothing about them, then [ten] seconds later you're playing like you're best friends because you didn't have to be anything but yourself?”

Thank you HSM alums for this needed dose of nostalgia.
