Alyson Reed stars in "Madison High" on Disney Channel as Ms. Darbus, reprising the role of the sage drama teacher that she played in all three movies in the "High School Musical" franchise.

Dancer, singer and actress Alyson Reed has more than 37 years' professional experience in television, film and theater. As a performer, she made her Broadway debut in Bob Fosse's "Dancin'," followed by "Oh Brother!," "Dance A Little Closer" and "Marilyn: An American Fable," for which she received a Drama Desk Nomination for Best Actress for her performance as Marilyn Monroe. Reed won both Tony and Helen Hayes Award nominations for her portrayal of Sally Bowles, opposite Joel Grey, in Hal Prince's revival of "Cabaret." She starred in Radio City Music Hall's "Gotta Get Away" and the Roundabout's "A Grand Night for Singing"—she can be heard on the cast album. Other cast albums include "Oh Brother!" and "Do I Hear A Waltz?" Nationally, Reed has been seen as Catherine in "Pippin," Cassie/Val in "A Chorus Line," and Joanne Galloway in "A Few Good Men."

Film audiences may remember her portrayal as Cassie in Richard Attenborough's "A Chorus Line." Her film credits also include Blake Edward's "Skin Deep," "Shop Girl" and "Manhattan Merengue." Reed's television credits include "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Without A Trace," "Eli Stone," "ER," "Nip/Tuck," "Boston Legal" and "The George Lopez Show." As a child, the Anaheim native worked for Disneyland—first in 1972 "Alice in Wonderland's" Alice in the holiday parade. She later performed in the theme park's entertainment groups "Disney Company" and "Kids of the Kingdom."
