TUTS and Humphreys School of Musical Theatre to Present BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL, 9/12-13
Theatre Under The Stars (TUTS) and The Humphreys School of Musical Theatre (HSMT) are cheering loud and proud as they announce Bring It On: The Musical as the 2014 Summer Conservatory production. Set against the world of competitive cheerleading, this powerhouse musical hilariously proves that winning isn't everything when it means losing something - or someone - you really care about. Bring It On: The Musical flies high on the Zilkha Hall stage at The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts, September 12 - 13, 2014.
Bring It On: The Musical tells the high-energy story of the challenges and unexpected bonds formed through the thrill of extreme competition. With a colorful assortment of characters, an exciting fresh sound and explosive choreography, this hilarious, universal story is sure to be everything you hoped for and nothing like you expected.
Uniting some of the leading creative minds on Broadway, Bring It On: The Musical is inspired by the perfectly crafted hit film Bring It On, and features 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), lyrics by Broadway lyricist Amanda Green (High Fidelity)
