Part of the JCC SummerStage, casting high school and college students, "Bring It On, The Musical" is loosely based on the original movie released by Universal Pictures. From the composers of "Hamilton" and "Next to Normal," with music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tom Kitt, and Amanda Green, the musical takes you through the life of Campbell, a senior in high school who dreamed of becoming captain of her school's cheerleading team. She gets the position, but her dream is quickly crushed when she's forced to transfer schools due to redistricting. Her new school doesn't have a cheer team, so she must decide if she wants to try out for the dance team — if the team would even let her join. With all new music, and a new plot and characters, you'll remember the movie, but get fresh twists and turns. The JCC production is directed by David Schuler and choreographed by Katie Keller.
"Bring It On, The Musical" began last week, but will continue Wednesday, July 19, Thursday, July 20, and Saturday, July 22, at 8 p.m.; and 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 23. Tickets are $20 for students, $27 for JCC members, and $29 for general admission. For tickets or more information, visit jccrochester.org or call 461-2000.
