Perfectly coordinated for Valentine’s Day, pretty in pink Elle Woods and her dog Bruiser show you can’t judge a book by its cover, then she gets ‘serious’ and chases ex-beau Warner from the Hollywood Hills to Harvard Law School.

“Legally Blonde reminds us that you don’t have to be pigeon-holed to one persona – you can be the sorority queen and a whip-smart whiz if you want, and win at both life and love,” says director and co-producer Chad Matchette. “The show has a great message, but it doesn’t take itself too seriously and fun is what we at Align Entertainment are all about! We love to present big, bright and boisterous productions where it doesn’t matter if you’re performing on stage or seated in the audience, everyone is having a blast. Take family, friends or that special someone – we promise exceptional entertainment and a smashing time at the theatre!”

Based on the 2001 Reese Witherspoon comedy, Legally Blonde the Musical was adapted for the stage by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin (music & lyrics) with Heather Hach (book).  The second show in their 2017-18 season, following last autumn’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Align Entertainment continues their success of bringing together local theatre veteran and up-and-coming talents plus in this case of Legally Blonde, two four-legged friends, make their stage debuts in this production.
