Bring It On was a cult hit movie, loosely translated for the stage with one of the show's composers someone you may have heard of...Lin Manuel Miranda. Set in two competing high schools (hence to two different composers with two completely different sounds), the musical is a camp exposé of the “bitchiness” (in air quotes) that can exist in the world of cheerleading and the rollercoaster ride that is life in an American high school, with it’s cliques of jocks, geeks and everybody in between.

We got to chat to company members from the British Theatre Academy's production including Robin McIntyre (who plays super-earnest Campbell) and Isabella Pappas (who plays super-bitchy Skylar) along with musical director Chris Ma before the show at the Southwark Playhouse.
