“With this level of talent featured, and an incredible set of dance and gymnastic numbers, Bring It On! seats are moving faster than any show we’ve performed!” said Jayne Myers, the director of this Pebble Players production. “We are literally going to flip you out! This show is filled with incredible music and gymnastics, it will be hard to remain in your seats.” High school kids from all over New Jersey came in for the auditions, including kids from two of the top area gyms.
Featuring the high-octane tricks, backstabbing drama and heart-pumping music of the world of competitive cheerleading, Bring It On: The Musical tells the story of what happens when Campbell, cheer captain at affluent Truman High School is redistricted to Jackson High, the school from the wrong side of the tracks, where she faces not just reduced social status but no cheer squad! Campbell must convince Danielle, the leader of Jackson’s hip-hop dance troupe, to start a cheerleading squad. But with the help of new friends, Campbell learns that there are things that may be more important than cheerleading.
Pebble Players is the youth performance subsidiary of Stony Hill Players, Summit's treasured community theater and opera company, which has been bringing great performances to Northern New jersey since 1947.
Bring It On! The Musical hit Broadway in 2012 with 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), music by Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning composer Tom Kitt (Next to Normal) and lyrics by Amanda Green (High Fidelity).
