Let us take you on a high-flying, energy-fuelled journey which tackles friendship, jealousy, betrayal and forgiveness – wrapped up in explosive choreography and tricks.
Bring It On tells the story of Campbell, a young cheerleader who dreams of leading her squad to victory in the National competition. But Campbell's reign as the newly elected captain of the Truman High cheerleading squad is toppled before it begins due to an unexpected and mysterious school redistricting. She is forced to leave her friends and teammates behind and find her feet at inner-city Jackson High, where a different social hierarchy means her privilege and cheerleading skills count for little
Despite the challenges of fitting in at a new school, Campbell befriends some girls in Jackson High's hip hop crew and convinces them to enter the world of competitive school cheerleading. Featuring two ensembles, a huge cast of leads, breathtaking cheer numbers and an enormous amount of high energy hip hop choreography this show drives forward fearlessly. Along with stunning singing and side-splitting laughs, music and lyrics by Lin Manuel-Miranda (Hamilton, Moana, in the Heights) and based on the movie starring Kirsten Dunst, this show is a high energy spectacular that should not be missed!
