Truman High School cheerleading captain Campbell has it all until she’s knocked from the top of the cheer pyramid and forced to change schools to the cheerleader-less Jackson High. As she discovers that her fall from grace may have been planned, she must convince her new classmates to start a cheer squad and help bring on some sweet revenge.
Bring It On is loosely based on the 2000 teen comedy film of the same name starring Kirsten Dunst and Eliza Dushku.
The musical premiered at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, GA, in January 2011 before embarking on a 13-stop national tour that culminated in its Broadway run at the St. James Theatre in the summer of 2012.
