‘Legally Blonde’ on stage at Bainbridge Performing Arts

The musical adaptation of the hit film “Legally Blonde JR” follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery, and scandal in pursuit of her dreams.

The show comes to the Bainbridge Performing Arts stage Friday, Aug. 9 to Sunday, Aug. 11, with shows at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, plus 3 p.m. Sunday.

Tickets, $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, students, youth, military, and teachers, or $8.75 each for families of four or more, may be purchased online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, by phone at 206-842-8569 or in person at BPA. Box office hours are 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, and one hour prior to each performance.

When Elle’s boyfriend, Warner, dumps her and heads to Harvard, claiming she’s not “serious” enough, Elle takes matters into her own hands. Despite making the grade, she must also resort to a showy song-and-dance personal essay to charm 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 and, as she begins outsmarting her peers, realizes that law may be her natural calling after all.

With music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin, and book by Heather Hach, “Legally Blonde JR” is based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer motion picture.

BPA Theatre School’s talented cast of students (ages 12 through 19) is led by an artistic trio featuring direction by Pete Benson, musical direction by Lisa Mandelkorn, and choreography by Heather Dawson.
