Young stars in the making from across the region have come together for the local premiere of a Broadway musical.
Bring It On: The Musical comes to The Customs House in South Shields this week and will be performed by the venue’s annual Summer School from August 12 to 14.
It will be the first time the Tony Award nominated show will be performed in Tyne and Wear and youngsters have come from Ashington, Whitley Bay, Gateshead and Sunderland to perform in the cheerleading based musical.
The youngsters have been working with choreographer Hazel Pude and cheer coach Bethany Slavin to create the perfect moves for the show.
Director Gareth Hunter said: “I’m really excited for this show, its super energetic and the music has something for everyone.
“The kids have worked really hard on what is a very challenging show and the end product is going to look spectacular which is only fitting for the local premiere of this award winning musical.”
The young cast, aged from eight to 18, have been working for three weeks to put on a first class performance.
Musical director Andrew Clarence added: “I’m really pleased to be back for my second year with The Customs House Summer School.
“Last year’s show, Joseph, was a huge success and the cast are in great voice this year.
“The music is already sounding fantastic and, with the addition of our superb live band, the show will be bursting with energy and excitement.”
