Hudgens pays ‘Rent’

Actress joins Harris-helmed Hollywood Bowl production

Vanessa Hudgens is going from high-school good girl to heroin addict: She’ll play Mimi in the Neil Patrick Harris-helmed production of “Rent” at the Hollywood Bowl.

The “High School Musical” star is the only cast member announced so far for the production. Prior Bowl stagings of tuners have previously attracted starry lineups; last year’s “Guys and Dolls” starred Jessica Biel, Scott Bakula and Brian Stokes Mitchell.

Harris previously appeared in “Rent” in L.A. and on the national tour.

Tuner plays Aug. 6-8 at the Hollywood Bowl.
