Bring It On Break down
CAMPBELL: Female, Caucasian or any ethnicity; Our central character: truly nice and kind, sincere, who slips easily in and out of a "cheerleader" affect but possesses an innate intelligence. Being captain of the squad means everything to her. A leader, driven, can be easily flustered. Senior in high school. Pop/rock singer, good belt range. Must be able to handle significant dance/cheerleading skills. PRINCIPAL
BRIDGET: Female, any ethnicity; Gawky, nerdy, jolly and insecure. A bouncy optimist in spite of her perceived shortcomings. Overweight to some degree, self-effacing to a fault, she blossoms into confidence over the course of the show. Great singer with R&B and riffing skills. Dance/cheerleading skills a plus. PRINCIPAL
DANIELLE: Female, African-American; The "Queen Bee" of Jackson High School, regal, dominating, complicated. Is head of a talented dance crew. Has a wicked sense of humor behind a composed mask. Loyal to her friends, can be lacerating to her enemies. But is ultimately fair. R&B sound, good belt range. Must have dance/cheerleading skills. PRINCIPAL
RANDALL: Male, any ethnicity; Campbell's developing love interest. Cute, "alternative," an expert DJ with an easy and generous confidence. Doesn't need to be a tremendous athlete. Pop/rock tenor voice. PRINCIPAL
EVA: Female, Caucasian or any ethnicity; Immensely likeable, sweet, fragile-seeming Freshman who joins the Truman squad – and turns out to be a sociopathic back-stabbing climber who takes over the squad and ruins the lives of many. (But more emphasis on "sweet and fragile" – we shouldn't see it coming.) Pop/rock voice. Must be able to handle significant Dance/Cheerleading. PRINCIPAL
SKYLAR: Female; A more stereotypical "bitchy" cheerleader type, funny, loyal to her friends, not terribly invested in her education. One of Campbell's wing-women at the beginning of the show. Good singer and skilled comedienne. Dance/Cheerleading skills a plus. PRINCIPAL
KYLAR: Female; A slightly less-intelligent version of Skylar and a year behind her. Rather a follower, also one of Campbell's sidekicks. Good singer. Dance/Cheerleading skills a plus. PRINCIPAL
NAUTICA: Female, Latina, African-American, or any ethnicity; Outgoing, funny sidekick to Danielle; sassy, loyal, can be aggressive when called for. Good singer with R&B and bluesy chops. Must be able to handle significant Dance/Cheerleading. PRINCIPAL
LA CIENEGA: A male-to-female transgender teenager, born a male (played by a male or TG actress). Any ethnicity; Her gender is simply not an issue, accepted by her friends, barely referred to. BFFs with Nautica and Danielle. Has a wicked tongue but a generous spirit. Good singer with R&B and bluesy chops. Dance/Cheerleading skills a plus. PRINCIPAL
TWIG: Male, Latino, African-American, or any ethnicity; A funny, well-meaning flirt who, develops an instant attraction to curvaceous Bridget. Good singer with excellent hip-hop/rap skills. Must have significant Dancing/Cheerleading skills. PRINCIPAL
