Bring It On Musical Tour 2022
Bring It On The Musical tour embarks following a Christmas season at London’s Southbank Centre. The Bring It On Tour to have then taken place has been cancelled
BRING IT ON MUSICAL TOUR CANCELLED
The producers of Bring It On The Musical today sadly announce that due to the impact of rising Covid-19 cases and self-isolation requirements resulting in 13 cancelled performances, the show will no longer be able to continue its tour. Performances at the Southbank Centre are unaffected by this cancellation. Therefore, the production will play at the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall until it concludes its final performance on 22 January 2022.
Selladoor Worldwide said today, “Cancelling 13 performances has resulted in an overwhelming loss of income for the production during a peak period that would otherwise have provided a vital financial backbone of the tour. This lost income, amounting to hundreds of thousands of pounds, has sadly rendered the remainder of the tour financially unsustainable. It would be irresponsible for us to continue, and we, therefore, have no option but to cancel the remainder of the tour.
We have not taken this decision lightly and have explored every possible alternative to avoid cancellation. Selladoor remains incredibly proud of this fantastically received production and are grateful to everyone who has worked so hard on it, and to all the audiences who have cheered us on. We are only too aware of the impact this will have on our wonderful cast, crew, musicians and creative team – as well as our audiences, venues and suppliers we had been due to work with during the tour. We are heartbroken that we have been forced into this position, but the impact of these cancellations caused by Omicron has left us with no other choice.”
Customers who have purchased tickets for the UK and Ireland Tour of Bring It On The Musical will be contacted by their point of purchase. Tickets for performances at the Southbank Centre are unaffected and remain valid.
BRING IT ON MUSICAL TOUR CAST
The production will be led by West End and Love Island star Amber Davies as ‘Campbell’ and four-time Olympic medallist and Strictly Come Dancing winner, Louis Smith as ‘Cameron’. Full casting to be announced soon.
WHAT IS BRING IT ON THE MUSICAL ABOUT?
Bring It On the musical takes audiences on a high-flying, energy-fuelled journey which tackles friendship, jealousy, betrayal and forgiveness – wrapped up in explosive choreography and tricks.
Cheer-royalty and newly crowned Squad Captain, Campbell, should be embarking on her most cheertastic senior year at Truman High School. When she’s forced to move to the neighbouring hard-knock Jackson High, Campbell fears her life is over. But an unlikely friendship catapults Campbell back into contention with a powerhouse squad and the fire to achieve the impossible.
WHO WROTE BRING IT ON THE MUSICAL?
Inspired by the 2000 film of the same name, BR features an original score by the multi award-winning creator of “Hamilton”, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Pulitzer Prize-winning Tom Kitt, composer of “Next To Normal”. The book is written by the Tony Award-winning writer of “Avenue Q”, Jeff Whitty and the lyrics are by both Lin-Manuel Miranda and writer of the stage adaptation of “High Fidelity”, Amanda Green
