The search is on for the real Troy Bolton and Gabriella Montez.

After conquering the small screen and the big screen, “High School Musical” is ready to jump into the reality game, according to a press release from ABC. The new reality series, “High School Musical: Summer Session,” will debut July 20 on ABC.

Based on the uber-successful Disney tween franchise, “Summer Session” will feature a nationwide talent search, with contestants (ages 16-22) competing in “HSM”-themed challenges while attending a music conservatory.

According to the release, ABC is looking for everyone from “the high school quarterback who’s never tried out for a play but has a song in his heart,” to “the drama club extrovert looking to break into the big time”

Hosts and judges have yet to be announced for the show, and even the actual prize for the “Summer Sessions” winner is still being kept under wraps.
