Preview of Westover School's 'Legally Blonde'

Dates rescheduled due to the hurricane

Middlebury, Connecticut – UPDATE: Westover School’s production of “Legally Blonde” has been rescheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, November 9 and 10, in the school’s Louise B. Dillingham Performing Arts Center.

The production was postponed because of changes in the school’s schedule resulting from the impact of Hurricane Sandy.

Based on the classic movie we all know and love, the story follows Elle Woods as she travels from her posh sorority life at UCLA to Harvard Law with the intention of winning back her one true love, Warner Huntington III. Along the way, she meets some new friends who help her survive her new school. After being chosen for an internship where she helps to defend Brooke Wyndham, a former Delta Nu and fitness mogul being tried for the murder of her husband, Elle gets the chance to prove that it is what is on the inside that really matters, and learns a lot about herself along the way. The musical is based on the book of the same name by Heather Hach. Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin wrote the music and lyrics. Marla Truini of Roxbury is the director of the production. Legally Blonde has situations and subject matter that may be considered PG-13.
