McGRATHPR.com – Americana Theatre Company’s (ATC) Studio Americana youth performing arts program presents its middle and high school students in a production of Legally Blonde Jr. on Saturday, July 28, 2 pm at Spire Center for Performing Arts, 25 ½ Court Street, Plymouth. Legally Blonde Jr.’s music and lyrics are by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin, with book by Heather Hach, based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer motion picture.
Harvard’s beloved blonde takes the stage by glittery pink storm in Legally Blonde Jr. Based on the award-winning Broadway musical and the smash hit motion picture, the show’s instantly recognizable songs are filled with humor, wit and sass – leaving everyone seeing pink! Follow the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. When Elle’s high school boyfriend, Warner, dumps her and heads to Harvard, claiming she’s not “serious” enough, 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. As Elle begins outsmarting her peers, she realizes that law may be her natural calling after all.
Studio Americana’s mission is to develop talent, inspire creativity, and prepare students to activate their dreams. They offer premiere training in theatre and musical theatre for students at affordable rates.
