Selladoor Worldwide have announced Bring It On the Musical will embark on a UK and Ireland tour, opening at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre on Wednesday 26 January 2022.
Love Island and 9 to 5 the Musical star Amber Davies and Olympic medallist Louis Smith are set to star in the tour, which plays a Christmas season at Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall.
The tour will then go on to visit venues in Southampton, Edinburgh, Blackpool, Aberdeen, Manchester, Cheltenham, Nottingham, Birmingham, Dublin, Woking, Sheffield, Cardiff, Sunderland, Glasgow, Bradford and Milton Keynes.
Bring It On the Musical is the high-flying, energy-fuelled, cheerleading 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.
Inspired by the 2000 film of the same name, the musical features an original score by Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton) and Tom Kitt (Next to Normal), with a book by the Tony Award-winning writer of Avenue Q, Jeff Whitty and lyrics by both Miranda and Amanda Green (High Fidelity).
The show is directed by Guy Unsworth, with choreography by Fabian Aloise, set design by Libby Watson, costume design by Susan Kulkarni, lighting design by Matt Daw, sound design by Ross Portway, music supervision by Mark Crossland and musical direction from Sarah Burrell. They will be joined by Danny MacDonald as acrobatic director and Aundrea Fudge as dialect coach.
