Virginia audiences can get ready to bend and snap as Virginia Children's Theatre brings LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL JR. to the stage this summer.

The production will run June 14 and 15, 2024 at Community High School (302 Campbell Ave SE). An entire cast of youth actors will learn, rehearse and produce this fully staged musical in just one week. 

Based on the Tony nominated Broadway musical and the smash hit motion picture, LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL JR. is a fabulously fun journey of self-empowerment and expanding horizons.

Elle Woods' boyfriend, Warner, dumps her and heads to Harvard. Warner claims that she's not "serious" enough, so Elle takes matters into her own hands, crafting a showy song-and-dance personal essay and charming her way into law school. Befriending classmate, Emmett, and spunky hairdresser, Paulette, along the way, 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. LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL JR. will be directed by VCT's Theatre Academy Manager, Sydney Sinclair, and Music Directed by VCT Alum, Cindy Blevins.

“We are thrilled to bring LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL JR. to our stage for the summer,” says VCT Executive Director April Hartsook Corbett. “This vibrant and empowering production is more than just a fun and engaging story; it's a celebration of self-empowerment and the limitless potential within each of our young performers. By embracing Elle Woods' journey of defying expectations and expanding her horizons, we hope to inspire our audiences and cast alike to pursue their dreams with confidence and resilience.”

For more information, patrons may contact VCT at (540) 400-7795. All tickets are $12, general admission, and are available online at http://VirginiaChildrensTheatre.org. This production is expected to sell out, so patrons are encouraged to purchase their tickets as soon as possible. As seating is general admission, patrons should plan to arrive at Community High School (302 Campbell Ave SE) early for each performance in order to ensure that their entire party can be seated together.
