Bring It On: The Musical is not a great script, but with a talented cast, high energy dancing, creative choreography, compelling gymnastics, and a dynamic musical score, Beck appears to have another cash cow on its hands as large audiences should fill up the theatre.

For fans of The Beck Center and BWU’s Musical Arts Program this production of Bring It On- The Musical will continue to fill the theater with sell-out crowds due mainly to the performance level of the cast and crew and in spite of the weak script and non-memorable music.

Wow, was I wrong! (That happens once in awhile, hahaha.) Bring it On the Musical, a rock/hip hop show now playing in regional premiere at the Beck Center, turned out to be quite surprising.

The production only really comes alive when we leave the sanitized environs of Campbell's old school and hear Miranda's thrilling voice in the thumping rhythms and clever, loquacious lyrics echoing through the halls of Jackson High. Choreographer Martin Cespedes gives us the pelvic-centered, bum-shuddering moves you'd expect, but also taps a sinuous street dancer's grace, particularly in "Do Your Own Thing."
