High School Musical on-screen sweethearts Monique Coleman and Corbin Bleu are reuniting on the silver screen for an upcoming Lifetime holiday romance film called A Christmas Dance Reunion.
This is the pair’s first acting project together since the High School Musical trilogy premiered from 2006 to 2008. Monique, 40, played Gabriella’s best friend Taylor McKessie, who was the love interest of Troy’s best friend and basketball player Chad Danforth, played by Corbin, 34.
Monique and Corbin both shared the news on Thursday, May 20, via their social media accounts, with Monique saying that “this has been the hardest secret to keep.”
“Starring in a @lifetimetv Christmas Movie has always been a dream of mine, but never in a million years did I think I’d get [to] share the screen with one [of] my favorite people,” Monique wrote, adding that she and Corbin are “so excited” about the film.
According to a Deadline report, Monique will play successful lawyer Lucy Mortimer, who returns to her family’s old getaway spot for the holidays for the last time. At the Winterleigh Resort is where she reunites with Barrett Brewster (Corbin Bleu), her childhood dance partner, resulting in a heated romance between the two.
