As reported by WLWT.com, drama teacher Sonja Hansen says she was asked to resign over a "racy" production of Legally Blonde at Loveland High School in Loveland, Ohio. The musical was initially approved by the school's principal.

The school district released a statement saying the drama teacher's employment at the school was still under consideration. Auditions for the next show have been postponed.
Students are showing solidarity for their teacher through petitions and by spreading the word on social media.
Legally Blonde had a successful Broadway run for two years, beginning in 2007, and ran for three years in London's West End, where it won the Best New Musical Olivier Award. The story follows Elle Woods, who decides to follow her ex-boyfriend Warner to Harvard Law School to win him back and discovers much more about herself in the process. Legally Blonde was created by a world-class creative team, led by Tony Award-winning director and Olivier Award-nominated Broadway choreographer/director Jerry Mitchell (Hairspray).
