Summit High School Theatre Department will perform Bring It On the Musical, a high-flying journey filled with the complexities of friendship, jealousy, betrayal and forgiveness.
Uniting some of the freshest and funniest creative minds on Broadway, Bring It On features an original story by Tony Award winner Jeff Whitty (Avenue Q), music and lyrics by Tony Award-winning composer Lin Manuel Miranda (In the Heights, Hamilton), music by Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning composer Tom Kitt (Next to Normal) and lyrics by Broadway lyricist Amanda Green (High Fidelity). The show was also nominated for the Tony Award for Best Musical.
It tells a story of Campbell, a senior and cheer-royalty at Truman High School. Her senior year should prove to be the best yet – she’s been named captain of the cheer squad – but an unexpected redistricting forces her to spend her final year of high school at the neighboring, hard-knock Jackson High School.
Despite having the deck stacked against her, Campbell befriends the dance crew girls and, along with their headstrong and hard-working leader Danielle, manages to form a powerhouse squad for the ultimate competition: the National Championships.
Bring It On is performed on the Summit High School Stage at 2855 NW Clearwater Drive in Bend and October 28-November 5.
