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!"

Quotes & Highlights
Watch a short preview video of the show.
“This ‘buddy’ musical has genuine warmth and charm … Director Christine Karki smartly resists the temptation to play these scenes with tears and puppy-dog looks … Meerdink and Hansen treat their characters with kindness and discovery … seeing them give a genuine and unstinting account of two old friends who recognize the impact they’ve had on each other was so worth the 90-minute investment.” -Star Tribune
“The bonds of friendship run throughout MMT’s engaging and moving production. Kevin Hansen and Steven Meerdink completely inhabit their characters … both bring plenty of shades to characters that could have remained stock. The show embraces what brought them together and spins that into a universal tale.” -City Pages
“Kevin Hansen and Steven Meerdink are a great pairing … playing their roles as children and as adults with perfect ease, capturing the humor and heartbreak that comes with any long-term relationship. The tight-knit friendship at the heart of this show is palpable and heartfelt. A simple and moving story.” —Twin Cities Metro

_Two boys. Friends forever. One moves on and the other stays behind. When time tests the bonds of their friendship, only their stories are left to keep them together. A richly melodic musical, The Story of My Life is a soaring tribute to the power of friendship and the people who change our lives forever. _
