Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre presents “Legally Blonde the Musical” Oct. 6 through Nov. 12.
Sorority star Elle Woods doesn’t take “no” for an answer. So when her boyfriend dumps her for someone more “serious,” Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law. Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style.
“Legally Blonde the Musical” earned seven 2007 Tony Award nominations,10 2007 Drama Desk Award Nominations, a 2007 Outer Critics Circle Award and the chorus of the musical was honored by Actors’ Equity Association’s Advisory Committee on Chorus Affairs with the first ACCA Award.
The role of Elle will be played by local actress Maris Fernandes, who recently starred as “Logainne” in Broadway Palm’s production of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” Broadway Palm newcomers Kara Dombrowski and Bill Casey play Elle’s best friend Margot and boyfriend Warner Huntington III.
Directed by AriZoni award-winner M. Seth Reines and choreographed by Amy Marie McCleary, “Legally Blonde” officially kicks off Broadway Palm’s 11th season. Music and lyrics are by both Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin, and the book is by Heather Hach.
