Woodinville High School Theatre Presents: Legally Blonde
This Spring, the award-winning Woodinville High School Theatre Company is delighted to bring the fabulous musical Legally Blonde to the WHS Theater’s stage. The show, based on the adored movie of the same name, will run April 30 and May 5-7 at 7:00 pm, with a matinee performance on May 7 at 2:00 pm, in the Woodinville High School Theater. The WHS Theatre continues its tradition of professional caliber educational theatre with an empowering yet side-splitting production, exploding with memorable songs and dynamic dances.
Elle Woods is the southern California sorority president who is accustomed to getting whatever she wants - including dating the hottest guy on campus. But when her boyfriend, Warner, calls it off because she is not serious about her future, Elle trades in her parties and fashion for studying and books, in order to follow Warner to Harvard Law School! This fun and fabulous, feel-good musical comedy is a delightful reminder that being yourself never goes out of style. The verdict? This much fun shouldn’t be legal! While the show is a comedy with a heart of gold, it does contain some adult content. Viewer discretion is advised.
The cast of this production comprises 65 Woodinville High School students, including seniors: Haley Ahlstrom, Allison Calhoon, Kasey Christie, Carolyn Dunbar, David Fountain, Ian Green, McEwen Guitierrez, Cayla Harb, Erika Kim, Maggie Mus, Prisha Patel, Jacob Price, and Georgia Willis. The cast is supported by a pit orchestra from the WHS music department.
Many of the technical aspects of the show, everything from set building and sound to publicity, are handled by crews of students from the WHS Technical Theatre program. Technical theatre students include Joey Roberts (Stage Manager), Jessica Karczeski and Simon Smith (Assistant Stage Managers), Sarah Mellor (Technical Director), Marisa Leinenwever and Max Vandall (Sound Directors), Grace Long (Lighting Director), Phenix Carver and Sofia Guitierrez (Costumers), McEwen Guitierrez (Master Carpenter), Isabelle Cobbley and Lois Johnson (Props), Kasey Christie and Saydia Phillips (Hair and Makeup), Anya Egts and Calin Hill (House Managers), and Maggie Mus and Georgia Willis (Publicity). Come out and see this fabulous Woodinville High School Theatre Company production and support our continued effort to dust off all the skills that we did not get to use during the pandemic!
The show is directed and designed by Josh Butchart; Joseph Mikkelson is the Music Director; Loren Tanksley is the Pit Director; Eva Stone is the Choreographer, with Marina Clever as Assistant Choreographer. Production design and coordination by Katharina Bomers-Muller (Producer), Stephanie Penoyer (Assistant Producer), Steve Cooper (Lights), Nathaniel Gibbs and Asher Faamoe (Sound), Marsha Stueckle & Karen Severson (Costumes), and the Woodinville Drama Boosters, led by Emily Mus and Jenny Webb.
