It’s been over a decade since High School Musical made its iconic debut on the Disney channel, but that doesn’t mean cast members like Ashley Tisdale have stopped reliving the ride. The actor recently decided she wanted to introduce the franchise to her husband, composer Christopher French. She hilariously documented the night-in for fans, as she introduced French to the singular Sharpay Evans.
Tisdale posted several stories to her Instagram as French reacted to Evans’s big moments and scenes. (Tisdale was 21 when the first film came out.) “Does anybody know what this is?” she joked, referencing one of the opening hit songs from the musical. “I’m subjecting my husband to watch it. He’s never seen any of them.”
So what did French think of the singing, dancing, pink-loving, mean girl? At one point, Tisdale asked him, “Would you have dated me?” and French simply laughed in response. Tisdale later shared a photo of Evans and cracked, “Sharpay not your type, babe?” while including a crying-while-laughing emoji.
Overall, French doesn’t seem to be a new fan of the movies. He even admitted that he probably wouldn’t have watched the films when he was younger, prompting his wife to post a video captioned, “LAME! He wasn’t cool enough.” But the good news is that hardcore fans still adore the movies, and the cast has maintained their friendships from their time on set together. Most of the stars, with the exception of Zac Efron, filmed an onscreen reunion in 2016, and they’ve been seen at events together ever since. Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens are still incredibly close, serving as their friend Kim Hidalgo’s bridesmaids this summer. Once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat.
