Bring It On The Musical
With music and lyrics by Broadway  acclaimed Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights, Hamilton, Moana), this Tony Award nominated musical is set against the backdrop of the cut-throat world of cheerleading, high school politics, and budding romances. In an unexpected turn, Campbell a senior and cheer-royalty at Truman High School has been forced to move to the neighbouring hard-knock Jackson High. With no cheer squad to speak of, against the odds Campbell helps to transform the local dance crew into a powerhouse squad for National Championships. Bringing together a multi-talented cast of performers drawn from Hunter Drama's own Senior musical theatre ensemble, audiences will be treated to vivacious vocals, cut-throat chore and cheerleading stunts tossed in for good measure!

These Truman girls, are superhuman girls.

Performance Dates: 21st-23rd October 2021


Normal - Actor's Company
An urban detective story in which the investigator is a teenage girl and the body is her own. Poppy has developed a tic. A twitch. A spasm. It spreads through her body, then her group of school friends and before long, the whole town. Nobody can explain it, but as the disease spreads, the community begins to fracture along lines that turn into deep fissures. Who or what is to blame? And how are they going to fix it? Inspired by the true story of ‘The Town That Caught Tourettes’, this new work by award-winning Australian playwright Katie Pollock is dark, provocative and theatrically inventive. Written by Katie Pollock, Normal is the winner of the Inscription/Edward Albee Playwriting Scholarship and the Ingenious Grant from Town Hall Theatre, MA (USA).

The town that caught Tourettes.
