About But I'm A Cheerleader

Give three cheers for Megan Bloomfield in the But I'm A Cheerleader musical at the Turbine Theatre. Book But I’m A Cheerleader tickets in London on TodayTix.

The 1999 But I’m A Cheerleader film is a widely recognised film in the queer community. Fast forward to 2022, and the heartfelt story of a teenager who discovers her sexual identity has earned a new legion of theatre fans.

At the start of the musical, audiences meet cheer star Megan. She’s an all-American high schooler who is looking forward to the summer of her life. Nothing goes quite to plan for this teenager though. When her family and friends suspect she’s a lesbian — much to their frustration — they try to fix the problem by sending Megan to a rehabiliation camp. "True Directions" will set her straight, both literally and metaphorically, right?

Ruling with a strong iron fist doesn't solve anything though. In fact, Megan comes into her own and discovers her true identity. While at camp, Megan meets Graham, a tomboy who helps Megan understand herself and what her “direction” is. By the end of the musical, Megan cheers for Graham, and Megan’s parents must come to terms with their daughter’s sexuality.
