‘Legally Blonde’ to open Thursday

“Audience members will be tickled pink by ‘Legally Blonde the Musical,’” says Kay Wilson, director of GSL’s fall theater production. “The musical entertains, but also conveys a valuable message: Be true to yourself!”
Based on the hit movie, “Legally Blonde,” the musical is an invigorating gift of musical fun, wrapped up with a snappy pink bow! Elle Woods is the southern California co-ed cutie, who is accustomed to getting what she wants. When her boyfriend, Warner, calls it off because she is not serious about her future, Elle turns her attention from fashion to the books and enrolls in Harvard Law School. Along the way, Elle proves that kindness and compassion never go out of style.
The show features Emmi Jerabek as Elle Woods. Elise Petersen plays the beautician who encourages Elle to be true to herself and her natural hair color. The handsome but self-centered Warner, Elle’s college boyfriend, is played by Jacob Reichow. The main cast is rounded out with Anthony LaPlante as Emmett, the Harvard teaching assistant who sees Elle’s true potential; Marissa Kirchoff as the formidable Professor Callahan; Katie Twiss as Vivienne, Elle’s prestige-seeking nemesis; Marisa Luchsinger as Brooke Wyndome, the fitness queen; and Leah Bettcher, Bethany Cross, Morgan Dahlke, Bryanna Paul, and Maren Warner as Elle’s loyal muses.
