High School Musical's Corbin Bleu is the first star of the movie series to land a starring role on Broadway.

The 20-year-old actor, who played basketball player Chad in the hit movie franchise, will take on the lead role of Usnavi in the Tony award-winning play, In The Heights.

It is hoped that Bleu’s addition to the cast will lead to increased ticket sales and an extended run.

The show's story is set in a diverse neighbourhood in Washington Heights in Manhattan, where college-age kids deal with the various decisions of young adulthood.

Bleu is due to make his debut in the play on 25 January.
