Chicago — The Disney+ series “High School Musical The Musical The Series” recently returned for its third season. The show is a spin-off of the beloved trilogy “High School Musical,” which broke Disney records.
This series follows the lives of students attending East High School in Salt Lake City, Utah, the same school in which the iconic movies were shot. Throughout the show, we follow their lives as actors, singers, students, partners, and friends. Our FAVE East High student, Kourtney, portrayed by Dara Reneé, is joining the rest of the gang at Camp Shallow Lake, taking on a new adventure in the entertainment world.
Dara Reneé has been a part of the show since the very beginning and she has loved every minute. Her character is a true second version of her. True Star sat down with Dara Reneé to talk all about Kourtney’s evolution, the scoop on the new season, and all things Dara Reneé.
Throughout the seasons, we have watched Kourtney grow as an artist and individual. At the beginning of the show, she was very afraid to step out of her comfort zone … especially on the stage. But this season, we get to see a new side. “She [Kourtney] does struggle sometimes, but I was so grateful I got to play it in a comedic way,” says Dara Reneé. “I feel like it’s very different from season two. You know season two Kourtney was nervous and finding herself and finding true love. This season, she’s very much finding herself within herself without actually needing a love or anything to love herself, and I really appreciate that.”
