WTP performed its first production of Legally Blonde, The Musical in August of 2012, during its first summer of programming. The show is based on the novel, Legally Blonde, by Amanda Brown, the 2001 film of the same name, and the Broadway show which debuted in 2007. Sorority star, Elle Woods, doesn’t take “no” for an answer. So, when her boyfriend dumps her for someone “serious,” Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books, and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law. Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style. Similar to the movie, the performance features “PG-13” themes and lyrics, but has an energetic and positive message.
Returning for the WTP revival is WTP Founder and Director Ben Rush, and original Choreographer, Hannah Shihdanian. Rounding out the team is Eric Anderson Jr., Music Director; Seif Cristobal, Lighting Designer; Ash Long, Costume Designer; Bec Lowe, Assistant Costume Designer; Alexa Lambert, Stage Manager & Prop Master; and Noah Barnes, Assistant Stage Manager.
