But I’m A Cheerleader: The Musical is the story of Megan, an all-American high school cheerleader who has the perfect life. That is, until she finds out her friends and family suspect her of being a lesbian and send her packing to ‘True Directions,’ a rehabilitation camp to set her straight. It is at this camp, under the strict tutelage of headmistress Mary Brown that Megan meets Graham, a sexy tomboy who shows her exactly what her ‘true direction’ is. Hilarious, irreverent and full of heart, But I’m A Cheerleader: The Musical is a quirky coming-of-age comedy about sexual awakening and self-realization.
The musical is based on the Lionsgate film, directed by and story by Jamie Babbit and screenplay by Brian Wayne Peterson. It first appeared at the Turbine Theatre as part of MTFestUK 2019 and saw its first full staging at The Turbine Theatre earlier this year. It is directed by Tania Azevedo.
