“Bring It On: The Musical” features lots of fun dance and aerial stunts to wow the crowd.
Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center will be packed with explosive dance and aerial stunts as “Bring It On: The Musical” presents its Oklahoma debut and an evening sprinkled with sass on February 18 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $20 to $60.
Inspired by the 2000 film “Bring It On,” this new Broadway smash will take the audience on a high-flying journey through friendship, forgiveness and determination. It tells the story of the challenges and unexpected bonds formed through the thrill and high stakes of competitive high school cheerleading.
“What I would love the audience to come away with is that, whether you’re a 15-year-old cheerleader or a 51-year-old woman or an 87-year-old grandfather, you just saw yourself on stage, and that you have renewed excitement about what you do,” Broadway lyricist Amanda Green said.
Uniting some of the freshest and funniest creative minds on Broadway, “Bring It On: The Musical” earned Tony® nominations for Best Musical and Best Choreography, and “The New York Times” called it "impossible to resist!"
Closing out Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center’s fifth anniversary is “Memphis” on April 22. From the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis, Tenn., “Memphis” is a winner of four 2010 Tony Awards including Best Musical. It bursts off the stage with explosive dancing, irresistible songs and a thrilling tale of fame and forbidden love. Inspired by actual events, “Memphis” is about a radio DJ who wants to change the world and a club singer who is ready for her big break.
Both shows are suitable for ages 13 and up. Tickets are available at the BAPAC box office located at 701 S. Main St. in downtown Broken Arrow or by phone at 918-259-5778, Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Patrons can also visit the BAPAC Facebook page at facebook.com/brokenarrowpac for show updates and more.
