Big Noise Theatre Company has announced the cast for Legally Blonde the Musical, running weekends Oct 10-19 at Prairie Lakes Theatre in Des Plaines, IL. Legally Blonde is based on the beloved 2001 movie and 2007 Broadway show about a sorority girl who discovers herself and makes good at Harvard Law at the same time!

Big Noise willwelcome back Director/Choreographer Zachary L. Gray (Chicago), who previously helmed Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, as well as choreographed How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying for Big Noise. Sets will be designed by David Geinosky (Elk Grove Village) who thrilled audiences with his vision for Big Noise's hit Ragtime.

Starring as Elle is Haley Jane Schafer of Chicago. Her romantic show interests are Greg Foster (Chicago) as Emmett, and Tommy Thurston (Chicago) as Warner. Kathleen Gibson (Chicago) will play Elle's spunky beautician, Paulette, and Kara Schoenhofer (Chicago) is Warner's new love interest Vivienne. Mike Weaver of Glencoe is featured as Professor Callahan.

Legally Blonde also features Allyson Graves (Chicago) as Serena, Amanda Walsh (Chicago) as Enid, Annie Jo Ermel (Wheeling) as Kate, Britt-Marie Siversten (Park Ridge) as Brooke and Jennifer Lenius (Mt Prospect) as Chutney. Kim Green (Chicago) plays Margot, Tavia Hunt (Chicago) is Pilar, Missy Wise (Evanston) plays Gaelen , and Melanie Frewen of Downers Grove is Leilani.

Rounding out the ensemble will be Orrin Keown, Roy Belzer and Michael Greenlief, all of Chicago, and Maggie Dominick of Palatine.

"Legally Blonde the Musical is for all audiences," says Gray. ""It has all the makings of a traditional Broadway show-singing, dancing, comedy and heart. The writing is surprisingly smart and good, the music is terrific and the show has a little bit of a lesson, too!"
