‘Legally Blonde’ to take Lower Dauphin High School stage

Posted

Lower Dauphin High School will present the musical “Legally Blonde” in the school auditorium at 7 p.m. March 5-7.

The show is based on the novel “Legally Blonde” by Amanda Brown and the 2001 film of the same name.

It tells the story of Elle Woods, a sorority girl who enrolls at Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend. She discovers how her knowledge of the law can help others, and successfully defends exercise queen Brooke Wyndham in a murder trial. Throughout the show, no one has faith in Elle, but she manages to surprise them when she defies expectations while staying true to herself.

Parental guidance is advised as some material may be inappropriate for children 13 and younger.

The cast has more than 65 students. Senior Emma McQuinn has the lead role of Elle. Caiden Covell is Emmett Forrest; Cameron Snelbaker is Warner Huntington III; Matthew Little is Professor Callahan; Madi Miduri is Paulette Buonofonte; Sophia Ditty is Vivienne Kensington; and Olivia Meyers is Brooke Wyndham. The dance co-captains are Dale Sanders and Olivia Meyers. Jacob Pegher is the student director. Other seniors in the show include Richie Johnson, Amy Miller, Mauricette Musser, Devin Roth and Ben Sierer.

Call 717-566-5393 for ticket prices and to order.

A sneak preview for senior citizens was planned for Wednesday, March 4, following a complimentary breakfast. The performance on Friday, March 6, will feature a dinner before the show to benefit the Lower Dauphin Falcon Foundation. The deadline has passed to reserve tickets for the dinner.

Kevin Strawser is the director, Elizabeth Colpo is vocal director; Rushard Dennis is choreographer; Marie Weber is orchestra director; Michael James is technical director; Bryan Strawser is stage manager; Lisa Ditty is costume coordinator; Beth Wappman is makeup artist; and Val Stricker is producer.
