Bring It On the Musical stars musical theatre and TV star Amber Davies as ‘Campbell’ and four-time Olympic medallist Louis Smith as ‘Cameron’. The show opens at the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, London on Wednesday 8 December 2021, following performances at Peterborough New Theatre and ahead of a UK tour in 2022.
Inspired by the 2000 film of the same name, Bring It On the Musical features an original score by the multi-award-winning creator of “Hamilton”, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Pulitzer Prize-winning Tom Kitt, composer of “Next To Normal”. The book is written by the Tony Award-winning writer of “Avenue Q”, Jeff Whitty and the lyrics are by both Lin-Manuel Miranda and writer of the stage adaptation of “High Fidelity”, Amanda Green.
Bring It On the Musical takes audiences on a high-flying, energy-fuelled journey which tackles friendship, jealousy, betrayal and forgiveness – wrapped up in explosive choreography and tricks.
Cheer-royalty and newly crowned Squad Captain, Campbell, should be embarking on her most cheertastic senior year at Truman High School. When she’s forced to move to the neighbouring hard-knock Jackson High, Campbell fears her life is over. But an unlikely friendship catapults Campbell back into contention with a powerhouse squad and the fire to achieve the impossible.
