When Olivia Rodrigo and her co-stars sang “We are all in the same boat” on High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, they really meant it. Julia Lester and Larry Saperstein, who played Rodrigo’s high school comedians on the show, attended the Sour Tour on Tuesday, April 26, to meet the “Drivers License” singer and cheer her on from the audience — because after all , once a wildcat, always a wildcat.
Stopped by the first of two Sour Tour dates at New York’s Radio City Music Hall — where Lester is currently rehearsing for the Encores! production of In the woods – the three Disney stars marked their reunion with a quick live behind-the-scenes photograph. Rodrigo hugs his comrades on either side of her tightly, Saperstein wearing a “Driver’s License” t-shirt.
The trio met while working on the exclusive two-season Disney+ TV show High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, playing a group of theater kids who attend the same Salt Lake City high school where the original musical high school movies have been made. When their theater department decides to honor the school’s history by hosting their own performance of High School Musical: The Musical, Rodrigo’s character Nini plays Gabriella, Lester’s Ashlyn is Mrs. Darbus, and Saperstein’s Big Red helps behind the scenes.
The actors of the series have supported each other since the beginning. They frequently post and comment on congratulations to commemorate each other’s accomplishments – such as when Rodrigo graduate high school – and Saperstein joined another HSMTMTS star, Matt Cornett, in assist the premiere of the new film by Joshua Bassett Better Nate than ever.
