"One of the most exciting Atlanta world premieres in many years...fiercely funny writing...and an explosively original mix of singing, acting, dancing and cheer." —Wendell Brock for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"A dynamic new musical...the cast is ferociously talented." —Phil Kloer, ArtsCriticATL.com
Celebrate the world premiere of a new musical created by a Tony Award®-winning team of Broadway's brightest young creators.
Two squads. Two schools. One mission: claim the title at the National Cheerleading Championships. 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. How do you learn to be true to your team and to yourself? Sometimes it's got to get ugly before it gets pretty. Game on.
The team behind this world premiere is an extraordinarily rare union of Broadway's most acclaimed, award-winning 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 new musical is directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Andy Blankenbuehler (In the Heights).
