The hilarious, heart-warming musical comedy ‘Legally Blonde,’ with book by Heather Hach and music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin opens at Spanaway Lake High School May 5.
This is the charming tale of a “stereotypical,” self-indulgent blonde high school senior who is dumped by her dream boyfriend when he enters Harvard Law School. Elle Wood is told that he doesn’t believe she projects the proper image for the wife of an attorney; also, she’s not serious enough for him.
Elle takes matters in her own hands and through show-music song-and-dance numbers gives forth a perfect essay of why she is a right fit for Harvard and works her way into the prestigious university to be along side her love.
Eventually, Elle finds her law books are a better fit for her than her boyfriend and she dumps him and excels in her studies.
