Based on the hit movie, Galway Musical Society presents ‘Legally Blonde The Musical’ at the Town Hall this week.
The show has already caught the eye of Hollywood star Reese Witherspoon, star of the film, who sent a good luck message to the society, tweeting, ‘Good luck, y’all look amazing!’
A fresh evening of musical fun, the show centres on Elle Woods, the college sweetheart who doesn’t take no for an answer. So when her boyfriend, Warner, dumps her for someone “serious”, Elle puts down the credit cards, hits the books, and heads for Harvard Law School. Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style. This high-energy pop musical’s fun and catchy score features music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin, and a hysterical book by Heather Hach.
Legally Blonde The Musical will star Hannah Wright (Elle Woods, pictured), Roisin Egenton Lawless (Paulette), Richard Brown (Emmett), Michael Cooney (Professor Callahan), Patrick Connelly (Warner), Kate O’Mahony (Vivienne), Kori Kilduff (Brooke), Ailise Higgins (Serena), Nicola Kerrigan (Pilar), Síofra Ní Chonluain (Margot) and Hannah McCreanor (Enid).
The A.I.M.S award winning production team consists of Brian and Sean Power who direct this energetic and colourful production, musical director, Shane Farrell, who will also conduct a 10-piece orchestra, choreographer Claire Rigney, has been putting the cast through their paces with exciting dances, and Chorus Mistress Heather Shine, who has been working with the cast to ensure they are pitch perfect.
