The ALLIANCE THEATRE announced the cast of its world premiere production of Bring It On: The Musical.
The lead actors in the ALLIANCE THEATRE production include Helene Yorke (Campbell), who performed as Glinda in the national tour of Wicked; Adrienne Warren (Danielle), fresh from the recent national tour of Dreamgirls and Nick Blaemire (Randall), who appeared in the original Broadway production of Cry-Baby.

The cast includes some of the nation's most skilled competitive cheerleaders. Their combined achievements include over 25 national and 50 team titles in gymnastics and choreography. They were selected in part through a collaboration with Varsity, the global leader in competitive cheerleading. Among eight of the most notable are: Antwan Bethea, Michael Naone-Carter, Courtney Corbeille, Brooklyn Freitag, Melody Mills, ShelDon Tucker, David Ranck and Lauren Whitt.
The high-stakes world of competitive cheerleading meets the cutthroat rivalries of high school politics and romance in this bold and explosive new musical comedy. Bring It On: The Musical comes to life through the talents of Broadway's brightest young creators. With an original book by Tony Award®-winner Jeff Whitty (Avenue Q), music and lyrics by Tony® Award-winning composer Lin-Manuel Miranda (In The Heights), music by Pulitzer and Tony® Award-winning composer Tom Kitt (Next to Normal) and lyrics by Broadway lyricist Amanda Green (High Fidelity), this wholly original new musical is directed and choreographed by Tony® Award winner Andy Blankenbuehler (In The Heights).
