The full cast has been revealed for the upcoming return of hit musical But I'm A Cheerleader, playing at the Turbine Theatre in Battersea from next month.

Following a cheerleader who is sent to a conversion camp by her parents (only to discover more about herself and the community around her in the process), the show is based on the cult classic movie. That cult classic had direction and story by Jamie Babbit and screenplay by Brian Wayne Peterson, while the new musical has a book and lyrics by Bill Augustin, with music by Andrew Abrams and direction by Tania Azevedo.

WhatsOnStage gave the piece a glowing review when it first premiered, saying it is full of "belly laughs, full-throttle performances and roof-raising numbers".

Appearing will be Jessica Aubrey (she/her, Bedknobs and Broomsticks) as Megan, alongside Megan Hill (they/them, Maria Friedman and Friends - Legacy) as Graham.
