It’s a hit TV movie, a quadruple-platinum CD, a touring live concert and a top-selling DVD. Now, “High School Musical” is hitting the ice.

“Disney’s High School Musical: The Ice Tour” will open August 31 in Lakeland, Fla. and travel to at least 100 cities in the next year, Disney officials said Tuesday.

“‘High School Musical’ has been a smash hit in virtually every area of the entertainment spectrum,” said Thomas Schumacher, president of Walt Disney Co.’s Disney Theatrical Productions. “The ice tour celebrates the fun and music in a whole new way.”

The production will feature “some of the world’s most talented skaters” performing music from the “High School Musical” soundtrack, said Nicole Feld of Feld Entertainment, the production company behind the ice show.

“With the ice as the dance floor, this event will be an unprecedented twist on a fan favorite,” she said.

Tickets for the U.S. dates will be available April 2.
