Mission Viejo, CA – The Department of Theatre Arts at Saddleback College is thrilled to present Legally Blonde, music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin, Book by Heather Hack, based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the Metro-Goldwin-Mayor motion picture, on April 12-21 in the McKinney Theatre at Saddleback College. Directed by Scott Farthing, choreographed by Deidre Cavazzi and musically directed by Lex Leigh, this exuberant musical is a treat for anyone who wants to escape to a fantasy world where an LA fashion student conquers Harvard law. Sorority star Elle Woods doesn't take "no" for an answer. So when her boyfriend dumps her for someone "serious," Elle puts down her credit card, hits the books, and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law School. 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, ten 2007 Drama Desk Award nominations, and a 2007 Outer Critics Circle Award.
