Vanguard University’s Department of Theatre Arts Presents
The New Broadway Musical: Legally Blonde the Musical
Reinterpreting the Law of Love
Costa Mesa, CA, April 1, 2014 – Vanguard University’s highly acclaimed and award-winning department of theatre arts presents the new Broadway musical, Legally Blonde the Musical. The production is directed by Vanda Eggington and is presented in the Lyceum Theater on the Vanguard University campus, beginning April 11, 2014 and running three weekendsthrough April 26, 2014.
Harvard’s beloved blonde takes the stage by pink storm in this fun, upbeat musical about self-discovery. Legally Blonde the Musical’s peppy score and playful book stay true to the movie and provide ridiculously enjoyable entertainment from start to finish. Elle Woods appears to have it all, but her life is turned upside-down when her boyfriend dumps her and leaves to attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle charms her way into Harvard, and all havoc breaks loose. Legally Blonde the Musical was nominated in 2007 for seven Tony Awards, including Best Original Score.
The show’s director, Vanda Eggington, is passionate about the redeeming qualities of the story that run covertly under the air-head façade, “Legally Blonde the Musical is not the simple one-dimensional tale it might seem to be. It is a triumphant story about anyone who has ever let others dictate his or her own worth; in this case, 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 how her true worth is much more than skin deep, and greater than she ever could have ever imagined.”
This production is suitable for teens and older. All performances are presented on the campus of Vanguard University, in the Lyceum Theater. Ticket prices are $17 for general admission and $14 for seniors, college students and groups.
