Cast - High School Musical
If you don't know who the cast of High School Musical is, we're gonna go out on a limb and assume you don't know any children. And yes, you could turn to the nearest tween for the answer and get an earful of names rattled off: Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale; Troy, Gabriella, Sharpay. But what it really comes down to is that the cast of the Disney Channel's original-movie-turned-runaway-licensing-phenomenon are just a bunch of regular kids who came together over an afternoon spent in detention (and yes, there is a prom queen, a jock, and a brain -- but no freak or delinquent; come on, it's a Disney musical). After overcoming a few obstacles, they not only win the scholastic decathlon and the big game, they also discover a shared love (and talent) for, well, high school musicals and go on to stage two more of them in HSMs 2 and 3 (so far).
