Musical movie hit comes to UK

High School Musical

A hit musical movie which has taken America by storm is coming to Britian.

High School Musical is about a cool kid and a geek who fall in love. It's already been seen by a whopping 37 million people in America.

The young stars were unknown until the film became a surprise smash hit. The main actors, Zac Efron and Vanessa Anne Hudgens, are big celebrities there now.

You'll be able to watch the flick on BBC One this Christmas, and it'll be coming out on DVD.

The Disney movie was made for TV, but it soon became one of the biggest hits of the year.

The story of sports star Troy and maths nerd Gabriella really took off, and was shown on TV in the US 13 times.

Big seller

A collection of music from the show is the biggest selling album in America this year.

And it's such a success that there are already plans for a sequel and to put a live version on in theatres around Britain.
