High School Musical Stars Set to Lead in New Lifetime Christmas Movie, A Christmas Dance Reunion

·2 min read

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas movie news season.

While the holiday time is still a long way's off, it's never too early for an exciting update regarding Christmas movie programming. Lifetime is whetting our appetite for one movie in particular, bringing High School Musical stars Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman together to our television screens once again, in a movie titled A Christmas Dance Reunion. Produced by Off Camera Entertainment and Brain Power Studio with Stephanie Slack, Margret H. Huddleston, and Beth Stevenson as executive producers with Megan Henry Herzlinger and Brian Herzlinger as writers and Brian Herzlinger directing, A+E Networks described the plot in a company press release:

Successful attorney Lucy Mortimer (Monique Coleman), along with her mother Virginia (Kim Roberts) return to the Winterleigh Resort to help celebrate the hotel’s final Christmas season before the resort closes its doors permanently. Once there, Lucy is reunited with the owner’s nephew and her childhood Christmas Dance partner, Barrett Brewster (Corbin Bleu). Though the resort has fallen on hard times and has stopped most holiday events, Lucy leads the charge in recreating the beloved Christmas traditions, including the popular Christmas Dance, to bring together new families and new hope to the resort. Now, Lucy must decide if she’s willing to take a risk on love and partner up once more with Barrett for what could be the last Christmas Dance.

In the same statement, A+E Networks also announced another new movie for their holiday lineup, Blending Christmas, starring Haylie Duff, Aaron O'Connell, Beth Broderick, Telma Hopkins, Greg Evigan and former The Brady Bunch actors Barry Williams, Christopher Knight, Mike Lookinland, Susan Olsen, Jennifer Elise Cox and Robbie Rist. Previously, Lifetime revealed that Reba McEntire will star and produce in two movies for the network, with one of the titles having a holiday theme.
