The Owensboro Theatre Alliance proudly presents “Legally Blonde the Musical” at the RiverPark Center’s Jody Berry Cabaret Theatre. Performances will be at 7 p.m. on Feb. 21, 22 and 23 with an additional 2 p.m. show on Sunday, Feb. 24.
Based on the modern classic MGM film, the story follows blonde and rich Elle Woods. She is about to marry her college sweetheart and be a normal Malibu housewife, when he tells her he needs “less of a Marilyn and more of a Jackie” and breaks up with her to attend Harvard Law School and pursue his political goals. Heartbroken, she decides to also go to Harvard and win him back. In her pursuit, she discovers much about the world, her ex-boyfriend and herself. You’ll want to sing and dance along!
The Owensboro Theatre Alliance is a collaboration of the theatre departments of Kentucky Wesleyan College, Brescia University and Owensboro Community and Technical College. Dennis Jewett is the music director and Nate Gross is directing the play. Both are Wesleyan faculty members.
