But I’m a Cheerleader extends at the Turbine Theatre, eyes a West End transfer

Musical But I’m a Cheerleader, based on the 90’s queer cult movie, is extending its run at the Turbine Theatre in London.

The show will now run until 8 May 2022.

Joining the cast will be ‘Super Cheerleader’ swings Lauren Soley and Owen McHugh, plus Leslie Bowan as André and Kurt Kansley as Mike from the end April. Also the new resident director/choreographer will be Ruthie Stephens.

Artistic Director of the Turbine Theatre, Paul Taylor-Mills, said in a statement to the press that the show planned to take “a short pause to make some adjustments” before resuming the rest of the run up to 8 May.

He goes on to say that the adjustments follow a similar process they went through on Heathers at The Other Palace before it moved to the West End: “The idea is that we will do the same with But, I’m a Cheerleader and hope to get the show as ready, as ready can be, for its future”, implying that a West End transfer may be on the cards.

But I’m a Cheerleader: The Musical, has book and lyrics by Bill Augustin, music by Andrew Abrams and direction by Tania Azevedo. Musical direction and orchestration is by Josh Sood with choreography by Alexzandra Sarmiento and set and costume design by David Shields. Lighting by Martha Godfrey, sound design by Chris Whybrow and projection design by George Reeve. With casting by Will Burton, CDG.

But I’m A Cheerleader 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.
