Members of North Fayette Valley high school student body are excited to premiere their upcoming production of Legally Blonde The Musical. 

Come see what the gossip is about as we meet Elle Woods,  (Emma Pleggenkuhle) a sorority girl who enrolls at Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend, Warner. 

“This is the kind of girl Warner wants,” explains Elle, a fashionista consistently clad in her favorite color pink during the play.   “Someone serious. Someone lawerly. Someone who wears black when nobody's dead!“

Elle promptly applies to, and is accepted to the Harvard Law school, with the hopes of wowing Warner. 

Overtime, however, Elle learns that she is exactly who she needs to be, and if Warner doesn’t see that, then he wasn’t the right guy for her to begin with.  

During her journey through law school and self-discovery, Elle realizes that she has a keen knowledge of the law and that she can help others with her talents despite the fact that very few people have any faith in her abilities.  

Featuring over 20 cast-members, this production offers an energizing musical offers something for everyone.  

“The songs are really, really good in the entire play,” smiled cast-member Baylie Shrubb said of the production which boasts over 15 musical numbers.  “Love the dancing the most.  Especially in one called ‘Whipped Into Shape,’ the choreography is a lot of fun!” 

“It’s really coming together,” said North Fayette Valley chorus teacher, Kyle Harms of the production.  “I was really impressed with how quickly the cast came together to work on the songs, choreography and costuming.” 

“It’s really going to be a good show,” said Pleggenkuhle.  “I’m really excited for this role, and to see it all come together.  We have some really talented people in this production!” 

Another critical performance in any production of Legally Blonde The Musical is Elle’s fuzzy companion, her little dog, Bruiser.  Brianna Baumler’s dog, Honeybear, will play Bruiser in the performance and another four-legged cast member will be portrayed by Cassi Moss’s own pup, Poco.

The performance will premiere in the North Fayette Valley Performing Arts Center (PAC) at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, November 8.  There will be another evening performance of the production at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 9, and a matinee performance at 2 p.m. on Sunday, November 10.
