High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale is "so proud" of BFF Vanessa Hudgens after watching her take to the stage ahead of her Broadway debut.

Starring in the theatre adaptation of Gigi - previously an Academy-Award winning movie - Vanessa has currently been performing in a series of pre-Broadway shows and earlier today, Ashley got the chance to see her bestie in action.

And she was certainly impressed, telling fans Vanessa "killed it".

Taking to Instagram, Ashely shared a photo of herself hugging Vanessa outside her dressing room post-show.

Alongside her picture, she said: "So proud of this one. @vanessahudgens killed it on stage as Gigi, her dancing, voice and energy lit up the whole theatre. Get ready because she's going to Broadway!!!!!!!"

In September last year, Vanessa announced she would be taking on the lead role of Gigi in the show.

At the time, Vanessa signed up to four weeks of pre-Broadway shows in the hope that the theatre production would then officially move onto Broadway.

And luckily for her it has!

Just before the pre-shows kicked off on 16 January, it was confirmed Gigi would be heading to New York.

Previously, Vanessa had said starring on Broadway is an actor's "ultimate dream", so it's unsurprising she was a little more than excited to hear the news!

Sharing a behind-the-scenes picture of herself standing on stage, the Spring Breakers star told her fans: "Omg I can't believe it!!!!!! It's official, after DC I'm going to be making my Broadway debut with @gigionbroadway.

"Feeling so blessed, grateful and extremely excited!!!!!!"
