Students will bring competitive cheerleading to the stage this week.
Bev Facey Community High School students will bring their adaptation of the classic teen comedy Bring it on, to life on stage May 21 – 23.
Those in the school’s performing arts program will show the audience the high stakes world of competitive high school cheerleading. The musical follows Campbell Davis, who leads her team to victory.
“Our students are putting on a wonderful show, but in the process, they’re also developing important skills that will serve them well in life,” said Larry Frank, one of the performing arts teachers. “A musical is a complex production that requires a lot of teamwork, flexibility and creative problem solving. I’m very proud of the work they’ve put in, and it’s sure to be a memorable performance.”
Classic songs from the movie will be performed such as, What I was Born to Do, Bring It On and Cross the Line.
The school’s performing arts program has roughly 175 students enrolled, with more than 100 participating in Bring It On: The Musical.
The show runs May 21-23 at Festival place with evening performances at 7 p.m. and matinee performances May 21-22 at 12:30 p.m. and 9:30 a.m. on May 23.
Tickets cost $20 and can be bought at Bev Facey or the Festival Place box Office.
