If you have Disney+, you might have heard of a little show called High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. That tongue twisting title, which will be abbreviated to HSMTMTS from now on, headlines the story of the next generation of Disney’s premiere high school musical group.
Taking the place of Troy, Gabriella, Sharpay, and the rest of the original crew are Nini (played by current pop superstar Olivia Rodrigo), Ricky, Carlos, and their ragtag group of show stoppers.
I got to talk to Frankie Rodriguez, who plays Carlos, about the show’s most recent episode, “The Quinceañero.” The heartwarming episode sees the HSMTMTS crew coming together to give Carlos a very special celebration.
Check out the interview for inside details about the episode, filming the show, and more from my talk with Frankie.
