THEATRE fam­ily.

As Kather­ine Freind pre­pares to di­rect the new Bring It On mu­si­cal at the Kala­munda Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre next month, she will do so with her chil­dren Blake, Cooper and Matilda Jenk­ins among the tal­ented cast.

The pro­duc­tion, adapted from the 2000 movie, fol­lows cheer cap­tain and pop­u­lar girl Camp­bell who is forced to change schools and soon finds her­self the out­sider as she con­tin­ues to fight for a place at the national com­pe­ti­tion.

The roles the Jenk­ins sib­lings are por­tray­ing are vastly dif­fer­ent, with 16-year-old Blake play­ing trans­gen­der La Cienega, Cooper (also 16) play­ing mu­sic-lov­ing Ran­dall and 18-yearold Matilda as the school nerd.

Ms Freind said the show had en­er­getic rou­tines and great mu­sic.

“I’m ex­tremely pas­sion­ate about fos­ter­ing youth in mu­si­cal theatre and the op­por­tu­ni­ties Black Box (Per­form­ing Arts) are pro­vid­ing are a won­der­ful way to do this,” she said. is in the blood for one Harrisdale Bring It On is at the Kala­munda Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre from Fe­bru­ary 2 to 11.
