Bring It On: The Musical is a special production of Academy of The Company Theatre’s A.C.T. Summer Workshop.
Based on the popular series of films, Bring It On!: The Musical transports audiences to the fierce rivalries and high drama of the cutthroat world of competitive high school cheerleading. Uniting some of the brightest and funniest creative minds on Broadway, Bring It On features an original story by Tony Award-winner Jeff Whitty (Avenue Q), and a score by Pulitzer and Tony Award winners Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights, Hamilton) and Tom Kitt (Next to Normal), with lyrics by Amanda Green (High Fidelity). With a little bit of snark and a whole lot of heart, Bring It On speaks to the power of community and the ability of performance – athletic or otherwise – to bring people together.
