A versatile and accomplished individual, Corbin Bleu comes from an extensive background in film, television, and theater. He has established himself as an actor, singer/songwriter, dancer, voiceover/recording artist, host/television personality, and producer. Bleu is probably best known for his role as “Chad Danforth” in Disney’s Emmy Award-winning High School Musical franchise. In 2021 Bleu starred in his debut Hallmark Channel movie Love, For Real playing the role of “Marco Tate,” a bachelor looking for love on a dating show who comes to realize not all of his bachelorettes are there with the same intentions. Also in 2021, Corbin starred in the Lifetime Holiday movie, A Christmas Dance Reunion where he was reunited on screen with his former High School Musical co-star Monique Coleman.

In theater, Bleu most recently starred as “Seymour” in the Off-Broadway musical Little Shop of Horrors opposite Constance Wu, and will be reprising his role opposite Jinkx Monsoon when he returns to the production in June. Before that, Bleu led the cast of American Songbook musical Summer Stock for its world premiere at the Goodspeed Opera house in East Haddam, CT. Summer Stock was adapted from the 1950 MGM-Warner Bros. film that starred musical legends Judy Garland and Gene Kelly. The musical features a book by Cheri Steinkellner with hits from the American Songbook.

In Broadway, Corbin played “Lucentio/Bill Calhoun” in the Tony award nominated, 2019 revival of Kiss Me Kate for the Roundabout Theater Co at the legendary Studio 54.

Additional Broadway credits include: Godspell (Jesus) and In the Heights (Usnavi). Other stage highlights include Hairspray (Seaweed) and Mamma Mia! (Sky), both at The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. In 2018, he starred as “Don Lockwood,” the role made famous by Gene Kelly in The Muny’s centennial season production of Singin’ in the Rain as well as starred as “Billy Crocker” in Anything Goes at Arena Stage in Washington, DC. That year Corbin was honored with the Entertainer of the Year award from the Tremaine National Gala honoring his work in the dance industry. In 2023 Bleu performed at Howard University in Washington, DC for a Broadway Collections TV special called Black Broadway: A Proud History, A Limitless Future which aired on PBS during black history month.

Corbin also partnered with Karina Smirnoff on the multi-Emmy Award- winning ABC hit Dancing with the Stars, placing a close second. In 2022, Bleu appeared in Fox‘s four-part TV event The Real Dirty Dancing, a one-of-a-kind competition featuring celebrities reliving the most memorable moments from the classic film. Corbin and his competition partner, celebrity chef Cat Cora, came in first place.
