M-P Drama presents 'Legally Blonde: The Musical'

MARYSVILLE — The Marysville-Pilchuck High School Drama Club will be presenting the hit Broadway musical "Legally Blonde: The Musical" in the M-PHS Auditorium on April 18, 19, 20, 25, 26 and 27 at 7:30 p.m.

The show revolves around UCLA Delta Nu sorority girl Elle Woods, who doesn't take "no" for an answer. When her boyfriend dumps her for someone "serious," Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before — Harvard Law. Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style.

Twenty-one students make up the cast for this show including Marysville-Pilchuck students Jan Lacson, Lexi Jason, Kiera Sorensen, Hannah Rudd, Sage Fairbanks, Helena Lingstrom, Antony Ahmed, Derreck Vantrece, Sebastian LaRocque, Kalieb Downing, James Christenson, Jacob Lundberg and Maigan Theders. Marysville Getchell students in the cast include Anna Mudd, Zach Wells, Skye Lynch, Sarah Roetasoender, Casandra Gramstad, Katrina Dunn and Rachel Deckoning. Several other students from both schools will be featured as stage and tech crew.

The orchestra is led by Fifth Avenue Theatre Award-winning conductor and M-P teacher, Brian Kesler, and includes students from John Rants' award-winning band. Fifth Avenue Theatre-nominated teacher Roy Klementsen of M-P is the musical's director. The musical itself was nominated for seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and won the 2011 Oliver Award for Best Musical in London's West End.

Admission is $10 for adults and $8 for students with ASB and senior citizens. The cast and crew have been working hard since early January on the show, and they guarantee that viewers will have a great time watching the results. Tickets will be available at the door 30 minutes before showtime each night
