MPHS Presents: Legally Blonde The Musical
● By Anonymous
UCLA Delta Nu sorority president Elle Woods enrolls in Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend and, instead, successfully defends exercise queen Brooke Wyndham (also a Delta Nu) in a murder trial. This weekend, Midland Park Junior-Senior High School presents the musical based on the Amanda Brown's novel Legally Blonde and the movie of the same name with music and lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe and Neil Benjamin.
The musical is under the direction of Donna Halliwell. The perky-in-pink Elle Woods is played by Anna Caputo (senior). Supporting actors include Hunter Rittinger (senior), Kayleigh Fusco (senior), Kevin Peterson (junior), Kristina Damiano (senior), Julie De Stefano (junior), Erin McKenna (junior), and Michelle Passero (senior). The full cast includes students from grades 7 to 12, plus two dogs, who are working with a professional theatrical dog trainer.
The performances are Friday, March 22 and Saturday, March 23 at 7:30pm, and Sunday, March 24 at 2 pm. Tickets are $15 each.
