Bitingly relevant and sprinkled with sass, Bring It On: The Musical, inspired by the Bring it On film, takes the audience on a high-flying journey filled with the complexities of friendship, jealousy, betrayal and forgiveness. The show tells the story of the challenges and unexpected bonds formed through the thrill of extreme competition. The musical comedy made its Broadway debut in August of 2012. The production earned Tony nominations for Best Musical and Best Choreography, and The New York Times called it, “Impossible to resist!”
The modern and explosive new musical comedy raises the stakes on over-the-top team rivalries. Set against the world of competitive cheerleading, this powerhouse new show hilariously proves that winning isn’t everything when it means losing something - or someone - you really care about. This musical comedy combines an exciting new sound, gravity-defying choreography, and a thrilling story to create a total theatrical event worth cheering for.
The cast is the largest that has been on the HHIHS stage in years and features two principal casts that will rotate performances. “We were so worried about the castability of this show and ended up having to whittle down over 120 audtionees to a cast of just over 70 talented students that reach our entire student body from athletes to theatre students and everyone in between,” said Theatre Teacher and production director - Harry Culpepper, Jr. The creative team includes Joshua Wall as the Music Director and Jamal Edwards as the Choreographer with Jenny Zmarzly and a team of parents assembling the costumes.
The production will open on Wednesday March 9th and run through Sunday March 13th. Performance Times are 7:00pm each evening with a matinee at 2pm on Saturday March 12th and Sunday March 13th. Tickets can be bought online at www.seahawktheatreguild.org or at the door. The Box Office will open one hour to curtain. Cash, Credit Cards and Checks accepted.
