What is Bring It On The Musical about?
Loosely based on the film, the musical follows Campbell (Davies) who has just taken over as cheerleading captain, which should surely set up her senior year to be fabulous! However, when she’s forced to leave Truman High and instead attend Jackson High, Campbell waves goodbye to being on the top of the pyramid that is the high school hierarchy. All isn’t in complete despair as an unlikely friendship is formed and she joins a squad that puts her back in the running. The musical features a Tony Award-nominated score and a tale of friendship, forgiveness and coming of age!
