Bring It On! Shorecrest musical opens May 11 - tickets available now

Thursday, May 4, 2017

Shorecrest Drama's spring musical, Bring It On! The Musical is just around the corner. It will be a thrilling production that unites an array of Shorecrest's best student talent, from drama to cheer to gymnastics to our state-champion hip hop team!

This powerhouse cast tells a fun, funny and timely story about the pitfalls of competition and the value of teamwork and friendship. 

The production will run from Thursday, May 11 through Sunday, May 14 and again Thursday, May 18, through Sunday, May 21. Evening performance times are 7:30pm on Thursdays-Saturdays; matinees are at 2:00pm on each Sunday. But wait, there’s more! There will also be a bonus matinee at 2:00pm on Saturday, May 20.  

Bring It On is inspired by the movie of the same name, and features the combined talent of some Broadway heavy hitters, with music and lyrics by Tony-winners Tom Kitt (Next to Normal) and Lin-Manuel Miranda (creator of a little show called Hamilton). 

In lieu of a synopsis, here's some insight from an article about that creative team:

"The 2000 film of the same title, which pits two cheerleading teams from vastly different schools against each other, spawned four subsequent films and introduced audiences to the world of contemporary cheerleading, which eschews pompoms and ponytails for pop music-video moves and gravity-defying stunts. 
"While the stage production retains the title and the world of competitive high school cheerleading, [book writer Jeff] Whitty's vision for Bring It On: The Musical ratchets up the stakes of the plot with an "All About Eve" complication.
"It really is a new musical," Kitt says. "We're not looking at any one thing that exists that we can draw from." A touchstone for each of them was their own high school experience. As [lyricist Amanda] Green points out, "High school is never really over. You're always trying to fit in, to make good." Miranda interjects, "It's just when you feel the most! You have the most feelings per second.... You're bursting with hormones and everything's life or death ... which is great, fertile territory for a musical.”

Tickets are $15 at the door or $12 when reserved in advance. Ticket reservations here -- where you will find the option to either receive your tickets by mail, or at will-call on the day of the performance.
