Created by a dream team of musical theater superstars -- including some of the Tony-winning creative talents behind Avenue Q, In the Heights, Next to Normal and High Fidelity -- Bring It On: The Musical makes its way to the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts for a limited engagement after a successful national tour. Showcasing the intense rivalries and amazing athletics of the world of competitive cheerleading, this original story (inspired by the Bring It On film) centers on a perky high school girl named Campbell, a cheerleading captain who's forced to move to a new school. While struggling to define herself in an unfamiliar crowd of kids that look and act nothing like her, Campbell teams up with the hip-hop crew and starts a completely original cheer squad. The fresh-faced, high-energy cast lets loose with some incredible aerial stunts, choreographed to a soundtrack full of upbeat songs in this musical that The New York Times hailed as "impossible to resist!"

In Self (the Remix), critically-acclaimed performance artist Robert Farid Karimi offers a fresh view on American identity, remixing personal & political history as he travels from Mexican restaurants to mixed culture moshpits in this electrifying exploration of manhood, nationhood and neighborhood. The child of Iranian and Guatemalan immigrants, Karimi flows through 23 different characters, some real and others imaginary, accompanied by a soundscape spun live onstage by DJ D Double, which ranges from hip-hop to punk to disco and everything in-between.
