Salem Central School to Present LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL This Month

OMIGOD, YOU GUYS! Salem Central School Drama Club is set to perform Legally Blonde the Musical, based on the iconic 2001 film of the same name. From Friday, December 9th through Sunday, December 11th, Harvard's beloved blonde takes the Salem Central School stage by pink storm in this fun, upbeat story of self-discovery.

Written by Heather Hatch, with music and lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin, Legally Blonde has sung and danced its way around the globe since its splashy Broadway debut in 2007. Just like in the film, Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner dumps her so he can attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle ingeniously charms her way into the prestigious law school. While there, she struggles with peers, professors, and her ex. With the support of some new friends, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.
