But I'm A Cheerleader musical

After a successful premier in February where it received rave reviews, the 1990s queer- culture classic musical is extending its run at The Turbine Theatre. Following a short closure to make some necessary changes for its future life, But I’m A Cheerleader will run until Sunday 8 May 2022.

Joining the cheer squad as the new ‘Super Cheerleaders’ will be Lauren Soley (Les Miserables West End and International Tour) and Owen McHugh (The Snowman -West End and UK Tour, Me & My Girl – Frinto Summer Theatre), taking on the baton as the cast swings. Addition changes to the cast include Leslie Bowan (Hamilton London, Thriller Live – West End) taking over the role of André and Kurt Kansley as Mike (Heathers – West End and UK Tour, A Christmas Carol – Dominion Theatre) at the end of April. And joining as the resident director/choreographer will be Ruthie Stephens (Resident director for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella, Assistant Choreographer for Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK vs The World ).

But I’m A Cheerleader: The Musical is the story of Megan, an all-American high school cheerleader who has the perfect life.

That is, until she finds out her friends and family suspect her of being a lesbian and send her packing to ‘True Directions,’ a rehabilitation camp to set her straight. It is at this camp, under the strict tutelage of headmistress Mary Brown that Megan meets Graham, a sexy tomboy who shows her exactly what her ‘true direction’ is. Hilarious, irreverent and full of heart, But I’m A Cheerleader: The Musical is a quirky coming-of-age comedy about sexual awakening and self-realization.
