Actor Bart Johnson, who played Coach Jack Bolton on the show, commented on the photo: ‘It warms the hearts of the coaches to see this. Welcome home son. WHAT TEAM!?’
The post comes just weeks after her former High School Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens shared a video of herself in front of the same institution.
The video was set to the song she and Efron sing in HSM, Breaking Free, and saw Vanessa walking past the building before flashing two peace signs and a smile for the camera.
“Do you remember in kindergarten how you met a kid and knew nothing about him and then 10 seconds later you were playing like you were best friends because you didn’t have to be anything but yourself -same?” she wrote in the caption.
Efron and Hudgens played Troy Bolton and Gabriella Montez, two students auditioning for the school musical, in the 2006 Disney hit High School Musical.

A television series inspired by the series High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, debuted in 2019 and will soon return for a third season.

The Firestarter actor said he would jump at the chance to revive the hit franchise.
