The Music Theatre of Wichita brings LEGALLY BLONDE to audiences from tonight, August 8th through August 12th. Based on the hit movie, LEGALLY BLONDE is described as "a fresh and effervescent evening of musical fun, stylishly wrapped up in a smart pink bow!"

When Sorority girl, Elle Woods is dumped by her boyfriend, Warner Huntington III., she decides to get "serious" to win her boyfriend back. He is off to college to study law and wants a girlfriend who will be able to support him in his chosen career. Elle, an underestimated blonde who doesn't take "no" for an answer, puts down the credit cards, hits the books, and with doggie Bruiser in tow, she sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law. She discovers the true power behind being legally blonde, and proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style. This pop musical's fun and catchy score features music and lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin, and a hysterical book by Heather Hach.

LEGALLY BLONDE premiered in pre-Broadway tryouts in San Francisco, California. In April 2007 the show moved to Broadway, opening to mostly positive reviews and grossed more than $1,000,000 a week on several occasions. Jerry Mitchell directed and choreographed. The original cast included Laura Bell Bundy as Elle Woods, Christian Borle as Emmett Forrest and Richard H. Blake as Warner. It received seven Tony nominations and ten Drama Desk nominations but failed to win any. The West End production opened in January 2010 at the Savoy Theatre. The West End production was nominated for five Laurence Olivier Awards and won three, including the Best New Musical award.
