MELBOURNE | Bring It On – The Musical, is back in Melbourne after a successful stint in theatres in 2018.

Loosely based on the second Bring It On movie, this production features music and lyrics are by Lin-Manual Miranda (In the Heights, Hamilton), an original story by Tony Award winner, Jeff Whitty (Avenue Q), music by Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning composer Tom Kitt (Next to Normal) and lyrics by Broadway lyricist Amanda Green (High Fidelity). The play is about head Truman High cheerleader Campbell, played by Kirby Burgess (Barnum, Dirty Dancing – the Classic Story, The Great Gatsby), who moves against her wishes to a “rough”, poorer, more ethnically diverse school and forms a new cheerleading squad while learning some valuable life lessons.

Kirby plays the roll with gusto, and is joined by Jasmine Smith, who plays Jackson High School leader Danielle, along with Dayton Tavares (Billy Elliot, In The Heights, West Side Story) as Twig, Coby Njoroge (Carmen, Saturday Night Fever) as Cameron, Baylie Carson (Hello, Dolly!, Dusty) as Bridget, Sebastian Johnston as Steven, Karla Tonkich (Brigadoon, Legally Blonde, We Will Rock You, Grease) as Eva, Thomas McGuane (Jersey Boys, The Drowsy Chaperone) as Randall, Hollie James (Rocky Horror Show, My Fair Lady) as Kylar, Emily Thompson (Little Shop of Horrors, Urinetown) as Skylar, Samantha Bruzzese (The Bodyguard, In The Heights) as Nautica and Marty Alix (In the Heights) as La Cienega.

The story-line itself is quite by the book, and the songs are well suited to the play but not quite the kind of songs you’ll be humming to yourself the next day. What impressed me the most was the choreography and electrifying aerial stunts. They’re performed by cheerleading champions Ossie Mclean, Daniel Buyeske, Katherine Abela and Caitlyn Hammond. It’s super impressive seeing it all come together – singing, dancing, and feats of true atheticism.

All up, Bring It On – The Musical is a fun, enjoyable show that’s great for those looking for a night of escapism and entertainment. Visit Ticketek to book your tickets today. After it’s Melbourne run is up, Bring It On – The Musical will move to Perth (8 August – 18 August 2019), then Sydney (27 August – 8 September 2019)
