Tabor Academy Presents “Legally Blond” on February 20 – 22 at 7:30 pm in the Fireman Auditorium. Tickets available at the door are priced at $10.
When Legally Blonde, the movie, debuted in 2001, it spawned a small industry: $20 million at the box office over the first weekend and $141.7 million overall, a 2003 sequel, a 2007 Broadway show, and a subsequent MTV reality show.
The show chronicles the adventures of Elle Woods, President of the Delta Nu Sorority at UCLA, as she travels to the hallowed halls of Harvard Law School in search of love. Elle ends up succeeding in ways she had not anticipated, including earning a prestigious internship, finding a new love, helping save a friend or two, and becoming the unlikely valedictorian of her class. Romance has never looked this good.
Tabor’s production features a cast of 41 and a student crew of 17. Local students include: Alex Osgood of Wareham as Brooke; Allie Dawson of Rochester as Paulette; Logan Russell of Marion as Callahan; Casey Bono of Mattapoisett as Dewey; and Julia O’Rourke as the stage manager.
The production team includes: Mark Howland as Director; David Horne as Musical Director; Richard VanVoris as Technical Director; Danielle Latulippe as Choreographer; Annemarie Fredericks and Ruth Finnie as Costumers; and Susan Kistler as Props Coordinator and Assistant Technical Director.
Show dates are Thursday, February 20 through Saturday, February 22 at 7:30 pm in the Fireman Auditorium at Hoyt Hall. Patrons may purchase tickets at the door for $10; seating is open rather than assigned.
