Bring It On
The cutthroat world of competitive cheerleading meets the fierce rivalries of high school politics and romance.
This orchestration is based on the Original 2012 Broadway Production.
This show is orchestrated to be player-conducted from the Keyboard 1 book. There are 2 keyboard books in this orchestration both with lots of programming. T
Keyboard 1 is primarily acoustic and electric piano but does have other synth based patches throughout. This book will require an advanced player who can play rock and groove patterns and navigate the programming while leading the band. This book is heavily programmed but all of the sounds and patches have been painstakingly resampled from the original sound sources and keyboards used in the original Broadway production. There are lots of transpositions and mappings as well for both books which is all included in KeyboardTEK’s MainStage programming. This show has lots of electronic music elements that must be navigated.
Although easier to play than Keyboard 1, Keyboard 2 requires an advanced player who is an accurate rhythmic player. The Keyboard 2 book augments the Keyboard 1 book with lots of programming and patches that are also synth heavy and based on various keyboard sounds. As with Keyboard 1, all of the transpositions and mappings are built into our programming.
ORIGINAL MUSICAL EQUIPMENT USED
Yamaha Motif controllers for both Keyboard books.

Campbell is cheer-royalty at Truman High School and her senior year should prove the most cheertastic — she’s been named captain of the squad! But, an unexpected redistricting has forced her to spend her final year of high school at the neighboring hard-knock Jackson High School. Despite having the deck stacked against her, Campbell befriends the dance crew girls and, along with their headstrong and hardworking leader, Danielle, manages to form a powerhouse squad for the ultimate competition — the National Championships.
