"Man, what rich romantic planet are you from?" –Emmett, "Malibu?" –Elle, Act I

California girl Elle loves pink and everyone loves Elle, well... everyone except her boyfriend Warner, who dumps her for someone he can take seriously as he heads to Harvard Law School. Never one to be daunted, the charming but fierce Elle tackles the books, packs up her dog Bruiser, and finds her way into Harvard and hopefully back in to Warner's heart. As Elle learns the ropes and climbs the ladder toward success, she begins to discover what it is she really wants and realizes what girl power, brain power, and a good "bend and snap" are capable of achieving.

Based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the hit Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer motion picture, Legally Blonde is sure to leave audiences tickled pink with it's high energy, humor and bubbly score. 

Legally Blonde will be performed in the Quirk Theatre on April 10, 11, 16, 17, 18 at 7pm, and April 12 & 19 at 2pm. Recommended for ages 13+.
