Fox Valley Rep's Youth Ensemble to Present LEGALLY BLONDE, 12/6-21

Director and Choreographer Jacque Lueken of Fox Valley Repertory and the Youth Ensemble present Legally Blonde Jr. to the Fox Valley Area. Under the musical direction of Jeffrey Poindexter, the FVR Youth Ensemble brings this upbeat musical, based on the popular movie, to the Pheasant Run Resort Mainstage December 6-21, 2014 (4051 East Main Street, St. St. Charles).

As part of Fox Valley Rep's "FVR Give$ Back" program, the cast of Legally Blonde Jr. has partnered with the Geneva Academic Foundation (GAF), a local nonprofit dedicated to enhancing the educational experience of students in the Geneva Community School District #304 by providing scholarships to students and funding grants to teachers, schools or organizations.

"The GAF is thrilled to be partnering with Fox Valley Repertory for this fun event," says GAF Chairperson Laura Zuzuly. "Contributions to GAF make a big difference in the quality of education in Geneva."

In Legally Blonde Jr, Harvard's beloved blonde and the FVR Youth Ensemble take the stage by glittery-pink storm in this fabulously fun musical! When Elle's high school boyfriend dumps her and heads to Harvard, claiming she's not "serious" enough, Elle takes matters into her own hands, crafting a showy song-and-dance personal essay and charming her way into law school. As she tackles stereotypes, snobbery, and scandal in pursuit of her dreams, Elle finds that books and looks aren't mutually exclusive - in fact, law may be her natural calling after all as she quickly begins outsmarting her peers. Based on the popular movie, this upbeat original musical is fun for the whole family!
