#highschool #fittingin #cheerleading #self

48s Play by Play Students from Tony honored TDF Open Doors share their thoughts after a year of theatre-going. @tdfPlaybyPlay 12m Christopher Garofalo The whole idea of #theater is to make you think about what you are watching – and react. #PxP #tweatre 13m Catherine Moskos I used to think that plays like @BookofMormonBWY or @TheBestManBway were only for the rich, the hipsters, or bored retired people... 14m Ellen Lin The light went on, it brought the brightness to the stage and my heart. There was no coldness around. I felt the #power and the #strength. (cont.) 17m Catherine Moskos I now know that going to #Broadway should be a #risk; one should see the plays and musicals that others would dare not to see. #PXP 20m Bernie Gomez No matter where you go and what you do, people will see you in different ways. 20m Bernie Gomez Only you know what’s real. The #truth is something that cannot be escaped. #broadwaytheatre #pxp

27m Ellen Lin I felt their sweaty hair and the high atmosphere. #PxP #tweatre #broadway 27h Marisol Duarte I can relate with the idea of putting too much on your plate and being able to #balance it out in the end. #SeeABwayShow #PXP

Alison Goldman, Freshman, Queensborough CC Bridget Lavin, 11th Grade, Manhasset HS Gemma Lolos, Freshman, Hunter College Alison: Campbell is at the top of her game. She’s popular, pretty, and captain of her high school cheerleading squad.

Bridget: As she desperately tries to fit in and find a new way to dance and cheer, Campbell learns a lot about what it means to be herself. Gemma: Bring It On deals a lot with how we define ourselves, which is a huge issue for young people, when fitting in seems to be the most important thing in the world. Alison: Defining yourself and your purpose in life is important because the world will tell you who you are until you tell the world. Gemma: Bring It On is fun, hilarious, and cheerful. Alison: The cheerleading stunts are incredible! I’ve never seen anything like that on a Broadway stage. Bridget: If you’re looking for a fun, upbeat new musical with awesome stunts and a message of loving yourself and others just the way they are, then Bring It On: The Musical is the perfect show for you!

Gemma: And then her worst nightmare happens; due to redistricting, Campbell is forced to transfer to a different high school. And as if that isn’t bad enough, her new school has no cheerleading team to speak of!
