Posted on January 22, 2015

The third-year musical theatre students of Performance Preparation Academy (PPA) will be appearing in the Tony Award-nominated musical, Bring It On: The Musical, at The Electric Theatre, Guildford, from March 5 to 7.

Telling the story of a high school cheer squad, the musical was first seen at an off-Broadway theatre in 2011, before transferring to Broadway itself the following year. It has a book by Jeff Whitty, music by Tom Kitt and Amanda Green, and lyrics by Green and Lin-Manuel Miranda. PPA’s production will be directed by Christopher Howell and choreographed by Louise Pieri.
