- BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL
Presented By: Des Moines Young Artists' Theatre
From the creators of Hamilton, Next to Normal and Avenue Q comes this explosive musical about competitive cheerleading and fierce rivalries.
Campbell is cheer-royalty at Truman High School and her senior year should prove the most cheertastic--she's been named captain of the squad! But, an unexpected redistricting has forced her to spend her final year of high school at the neighboring hard-knock Jackson High School. Despite having the deck stacked against her, Campbell befriends the dance crew girls and, along with their headstrong and hardworking leader, Danielle, manages to form a powerhouse squad for the ultimate competition--the National Championships.

It’s 21st century skills that they need to have the rest of their lives. It’s not just something that when they leave fourth grade, they are done with it.
