OMIGOD, you guys! You totally can’t miss Aspire Performing Arts Company’s production of Legally Blonde the Musical! Get your pink on and join Aspire PAC for this all singing, all dancing, feel-good musical comedy that is so much fun it shouldn't be legal!
This award-winning Broadway musical sensation is based on the hit movie of the same name and follows college sweetheart and homecoming queen Elle Woods (Elizabeth Grant) as she puts down the credit card, hits the books and heads for Harvard Law School in pursuit of her boyfriend Warner (Bobby Becht), who just dumped her for someone more serious. There she encounters Professor Callahan (Alex Nieves) and proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style. Legally Blonde the Musical will take you from the social whirl of California campus life to Harvard's halls of justice with our heroine Elle, Ireland-loving hairdresser Paulette (Elizabeth Pietrucha), and her “friend” Emmett (Charlie Valdez).
The production includes 26 performers from across New Jersey, including Julia Bachman, Bobby Becht, Sarah Black, Brynn Buckley, Jolee Condon, Elijah Dor, Eliana Fleischer, Elizabeth Grant, Kiera Greenhalgh, Amy Hecht, Maeve Herzog, Macey Hyatt, Bridget Jacobus, Sienna Kornhaber, Kailyn Luizzi, Fiona MacLean, Adelynn Maddela, Alex Nieves, Daniel Perez, Elizabeth Pietrucha, Jeneily Ruano, Hailey Shafer, Andrew Sternberg, Emma Vacca, Alex Vacchiano, and Charlie Valdez.
Legally Blonde the Musical is directed by Artistic Director Lisa Beth Vettoso and features musical direction by Rich Lovallo and choreography by Melanie Della Peruti and Dani Van Kampen. Cheryl Wilbur serves Production Manager and Madison Jones, and Valerie Pascale are Stage Managers.
“This is the second time that Aspire has produced Legally Blonde the Musical, the first being in 2013, and it never fails to keep us dancing and laughing through the entire rehearsal process,” said Vettoso. “We are thrilled to put it on stage with these incredibly talented performers and introduce a new generation of audience members to this infectiously fun show!”
