THIS IS WHAT WE WERE BORN TO DO!
Bitingly relevant, sprinkled with sass, and inspired by the hit film, Bring It On The Musical takes audiences on a high-flying journey that is filled with the complexities of friendship, jealousy, betrayal and forgiveness. Uniting some of the freshest and funniest creative minds on Broadway, Bring It On 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, Hamilton), music by Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning composer, Tom Kitt (Next to Normal), lyrics by Broadway lyricist, Amanda Green (High Fidelity), and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Musical.
Campbell is cheer-royalty at Truman High School and her senior year should prove the most cheertastic — she’s been named captain of the squad! But, an unexpected redistricting has forced her to spend her final year of high school at the neighboring hard-knock Jackson High School. Despite having the deck stacked against her, Campbell befriends the dance crew girls and, along with their headstrong and hardworking leader, Danielle, manages to form a powerhouse squad for the ultimate competition — the National Championships.

HOW IT WORKS
Timeline & Audition Info:
Bring It On is the final Mainstage production of our 2020 Season, and will be produced in association with our School of Performing Arts as a streamed event.
Who: Seeking adults and teens to play the high school cheer squads of Truman and Jackson High School. SINGERS. DANCERS. ACROBATS/GYMNASTS. ACTORS. CHEERLEADERS. (Ages 15+)
What: We will live capture the musical over several weeks in October and November (and possibly into December, if needed) to be streamed later this fall.
Where: Rehearsals will take place at our SoBo studio at 5300 Barksdale Blvd. Most filming will take place outdoors at Haughton High School.
When: Dance rehearsals – Wednesday and Thursday evenings until all the choreography is learned, starting October 7. 6:30-9:30
Music rehearsals – Friday afternoons until all the music is learned, starting October 2.
Shooting days – Saturdays and Sundays until all scenes have been “live-captured”, starting October17. Times TBD based on needs of each scene/song.
Details: Once the show has been “captured” in its entirety, we will schedule the date for the streaming premiere.
Auditions are being held via video submission now until September 27.
Singers: Please record 30-45 seconds of you singing. It is recommended, but not required that you sing from the show, but please choose contemporary/pop Broadway.
Don’t sing? No problem.
Dancers/Acrobats/Gymnasts/Cheerleaders: Please submit up to one minute of you performing your skill set. It can be just you in a new recording, or a pre-recorded performance.
Email videos or links to StageCenterLA@gmail.com NO LATER THAN September 27. Students 18 and under should also submit an enrollment form HERE
Cost: There is no cost for adults. We are adopting a “pay-what-you-can” approach for the educational component because we want to make sure everyone who loves performing in musicals is able to take advantage of this extremely unique opportunity. We would typically have a tuition cost of $150.00 for teens, but that should not prevent anyone who wants to audition from doing so.
If you may have some conflicts with Wednesdays-Sundays for the foreseeable future, please feel free to email us and ask if Bring It On is realistically something you are able to make a firm commitment to.
