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.
