Smash hit teen movie 'High School Musical' is to be transformed into a London stage show later in the year.

The adaptation of the Disney film will start a 10-week run at London's Hammersmith Apollo in June.

Disney executive Steve Fickinger says: "I think the reason High School musical has been so successful is that kids really enjoy aspirational stories.

"Like Buzz Lightyear saving the day or Cinderella going to the ball, kids can really relate to that."

Disney has enjoyed huge success on stage through such adaptations as 'Mary Poppins' and 'The Lion King'.
