McKinley High School is back in session!

Nearly 11 months to the day Fox aired it's series finale of Glee, several castmembers traveled to the W Hollywood Hotel to celebrate co-star Amber Riley's 30th birthday.

In several posts shared on Instagram, Gleeks learned that the night was filled with familiar faces cheering on their good friend.

"The crew last night celebrating @MsAmberPriley," Naya Rivera shared on Twitter while snapping a selfie with Kevin McHale and Jenna Ushkowitz.

The new mom also took full advantage of the party to have a date night with husband Ryan Dorsey.

As for the birthday girl, she lived it up all night long as her party featured plenty of special guests including a few talented performers.

Faith Evans, Kierra Sheard and Kenyon Dixon all took to the stage to get the crowd moving. In fact, Amber herself also grabbed the mic to perform a few songs.

"#flirty30 #amberturns30 #rp @princessakeem I had so much fun at my party!" the Glee alumna shared on Instagram before revealing her grand entrance. "I am so blessed to have such amazing family and friends!"

She added, "I had a vision and really wanted to feel grown and elegant but sexy! I felt so beautiful and I made my entry with a bang! #flirty30 #amberturns30 what a night!!"

While the party was certainly a great way to kick off a new year, Amber received more good news earlier this month when she received a role in Broadway's Dreamgirls.

E! News can confirm the actress has landed the iconic role of Effie White (previously played on the big screen by Jennifer Hudson) in an upcoming production at London's West End.

How fitting for someone who sang "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" in season one of Glee.
