SHARPAY EVANS IS BACK IN THE SPOTLIGHT IN "SHARPAY'S FABULOUS ADVENTURE," A DISNEY CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE SLATED FOR A 2011 PREMIERE ON DISNEY CHANNEL

-- Ashley Tisdale Stars and Executive-Produces --

The irrepressible diva Sharpay Evans, recent graduate of East High School, seizes the spotlight in "Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure," a Disney Channel Original Movie scheduled to begin production this summer for a 2011 premiere. The incomparable Ashley Tisdale will reprise the role she made so popular in the "High School Musical" TV movies and feature film. Tisdale will also serve as executive producer of the movie which was written by Robert Horn (producer of Broadway's "13" and writer/producer of "Designing Women"). Barry Rosenbush and Bill Borden (both of the "High School Musical" movies) will also serve as executive producers of the movie.

In making the announcement, Gary Marsh, president, Entertainment, and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, said: "In 'Sharpay,' Ashley Tisdale brought to life one of the most memorable comedic characters we've seen in years. This movie captures the absolutely perfect next chapter in Sharpay's life, as she tries to cultivate the humanity buried, deep, deep within her - a challenging and hilarious endeavor."

Aspiring thespian Sharpay Evans, who was once a big, fabulous fish in a small pond (a man-made pond at a resort country club that her father owns), is finally about to meet her destiny on Broadway, and luckily, theater lighting highlights her hair and skin tone beautifully. Her big break comes after a talent scout spots her performing with her dog Boi at a charity gala, and now there's not a marquee big enough or lights bright enough to contain the glorious fame she plans on having. Sharpay and Boi head to New York, but theatre is a dog eat dog world, and nothing turns out as Sharpay expects, especially when she meets her match in a rather daunting Broadway starlet (who arrived in Midtown Manhattan as a recent winner of "So You Think You're America's Most Talented Performing Idol").

The Great White Way is all Sharpay's ever dreamed of, especially since she already has everything else. Life in the big city is a shock, but there's an even bigger bombshell when Sharpay finally realizes the Broadway role is really for Boi, not her. Putting her disappointment aside, she sets out to make Boi the most fabulous canine star to hit the stage, with the hope that his fame will become her fame (after all, she is his entourage and she holds the leash). Before long, Sharpay makes a new friend in a student filmmaker, Callem, who finds her to be a fascinating subject. Meanwhile, Boi finds puppy love on a Big Apple adventure of his own.

Tisdale originated the role of scene-stealing drama queen Sharpay Evans in "High School Musical," followed by its sequel and feature film. A fan favorite, she won an MTV Movie Award and a Nickelodeon UK Kids' Choice Awards for her portrayal. She is also the voice of Candace Flynn in the Emmy and BAFTA Award-nominated series "Phineas and Ferb." Her other credits include "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody" and the feature film "Aliens in the Attic." A Warner Bros. Records recording artist, Tisdale's second solo album, "Guilty Pleasure," is certified gold-selling.

The Emmy Award-winning "High School Musical" has reached more than 290 million viewers, in 24 languages. Its soundtrack was the #1 album of 2006 and the DVD was the year's #1 TV movie on DVD. Its sequel, "High School Musical 2," ranked as the #1 basic cable telecast of all time (18.6 million viewers) and has been seen by nearly 300 million Total Viewers, in over 27 languages. The "High School Musical 2" soundtrack is triple Platinum and its DVD release was the top-selling TV property on DVD for 2007. Walt Disney Pictures debuted "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" in 2008. It grossed more than $250 million at the worldwide box office.
