Robert W. Oppel directs this wonderful musical homage to the film of the same name - "Legally Blonde." Elle Woods (Bridget Linsenmeyer of Hydes, Md.) is the epitome of the "California Blonde" who has it all until her boyfriend gets accepted at Harvard Law and drops her. Determined to win him back, she applies to Harvard Law and the fun begins. At school Elle struggles with peers, professors and her old beau - Warner Huntington III (Aaron Dalton of York, Penn.). With the help of new friends - Paulette (Tammy Oppel of Parkville, Md.) and Emmett (Jim Baxter of Ellicott City, Md.), Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to Harvard and the world!
