Bring it On: The Musical

Author: Special to CH2

Bring it On: The Musical is coming to Hilton Head Island High School’s stage March 9-13. Bitingly relevant and sprinkled with sass, Bring It On: The Musical takes the audience on a high-flying journey filled with the complexities of friendship, jealousy, betrayal and forgiveness. The show tells the story of the challenges and unexpected bonds formed through the thrill of extreme competition.

Inspired by the film, the musical comedy made its Broadway debut in August of 2012. The production earned Tony nominations for Best Musical and Best Choreography, and The New York Times called it, “impossible to resist!”

The modern and explosive new musical comedy raises the stakes on over-the-top team rivalries. Set against the world of competitive cheerleading, this powerhouse show hilariously proves that winning isn’t everything when it means losing something (or someone) you really care about. This production combines an exciting new sound, gravity-defying choreography, and a thrilling story to create a total theatrical event worth cheering for.

The cast is the largest on the HHIHS stage in years and features two principal casts that will rotate performances. “We were so worried about the castability of this show and ended up having to whittle down over 120 audtionees to a cast of just over 70 talented students, reaching our entire student body, from athletes to theatre students and everyone in between,” said theatre teacher and production director Harry Culpepper, Jr. The creative team includes Joshua Wall as the music director and Jamal Edwards as the choreographer with Jenny Zmarzly and a team of parents assembling the costumes.

The production opens on Wednesday March 9 and runs through Sunday March 13. Performance times are 7 p.m. each evening with a matinee at 2 p.m. on Saturday March 12 and Sunday March 13. Tickets can be bought online at or at the door. The box office will open one hour prior to curtain. Cash, credit cards and checks accepted. Contact for ticket information. 
