A new school year means a new beginning for the Tigers, the worst-ranked high school cheerleading team in the state. But when an innocent team-building sleepover becomes a mysterious murder scene, the Tigers will need more than just team spirit to survive the night – and each other. With an original pop/rock score, We Are The Tigers is a new comedy with a delightfully dark twist on the high school experience.
