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!"

Ball gowns meet bluegrass in this fairytale romance that blends two wildly different worlds filled with music and dance: a bone-chilling ballroom where jealousy erupts and an enchanted forest where young passion blooms. At the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve, one royal family’s dream turns into a nightmare. Suspecting his queen cheated on him, a jealous king banishes her and their newborn from the court. Years later the child, a free-spirited young woman, falls for a handsome prince among the flowers of Bohemia. Yet as quickly as their love is forbidden, a series of twists lead them both to a magical homecoming like never imagined.
