The stars of High School Musical are reuniting for a 10th-anniversary tribute to the TV movie.

Actors Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman share memories of the movie when it is shown on the Disney Channel on Wednesday.

Zac Efron, who played Troy opposite Hudgens' Gabriella, could not attend the pre-recorded group reunion because it conflicted with promotion of his movie Dirty Grandpa, a channel spokeswoman said. Efron recorded separate remarks that will be included in the broadcast.

The High School Musical reprise comes during a wave of TV musical popularity. NBC has shown a series of live musicals and is aiming to put Hairspray on in December, while Fox is showing a live production of Grease on January 31 and ABC has plans for a Dirty Dancing TV movie.
