Four-time gymnastic Olympic medallist Smith shot to fame in 2008 when he won the first British gymnastic medal in 100 years at the Beijing Olympics. Following his success at the London 2012 Olympic Games Louis later won that year’s BBC Strictly Come Dancing, before going on to win the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special in 2014. On stage he has appeared in “Rip It Up” in both the West End and on tour.
Inspired by the 2000 film of the same name, Bring It On The Musical features an original score by the multi-award-winning creator of Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Pulitzer Prize-winning Tom Kitt, composer of Next To Normal. The book is written by the Tony Award-winning writer of Avenue Q, Jeff Whitty and the lyrics are by both Miranda and writer of the stage adaptation of High Fidelity, Amanda Green.
The production is directed by Guy Unsworth and choreographed by Fabian Aloise, with set design by Libby Watson, costume design by Susan Kulkarni, lighting design by Matt Daw, sound design by Ross Portway, music supervision by Mark Crossland and musical direction from Sarah Burrell. They will be joined by Danny MacDonald as acrobatic director and Aundrea Fudge as dialect coach. Bring It On The Musical is inspired by the motion picture Bring It On written by Jessica Bendinger.
