Our first rehearsal will be Monday, January 4th from 5:00–7:00 PM at ACT. Please read the schedule carefully as the creative team has worked extremely hard to make a schedule that allows them to assess each actor’s individual talents. ACTors will need to attend M-W, but Monday is the longest evening, and every other day the ACTor only needs to be present for one hour. Please let us know if you are unable to attend any of these rehearsals.

There will also be a Parents Meeting on Monday evening from 6:30–7:00 PM. This is an extremely important meeting for all parents to attend but especially if you are a new family to ACT. Josh and I will be discussing how you as the adults can get involved in the show. Aside from the creative staff, we are a completely volunteer run organization. That means we need people to make costumes and sets, create ACTor bio boards, assist at rehearsals and run the back stage at the shows…to name just a few of the many roles we depend on parents to help with during the next 10 weeks.
ALL ACTors SHOULD MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO ATTEND ALL THREE NIGHTS THE FIRST WEEK OF REHEARSALS! The staff will be continuing to evaluate each ACTor during this week to create the cast list. The cast list will be posted Friday January 8th. Please remember if you did not turn in all of your forms or you have not submitted payment, you must do so by January 8th, or your child will not be cast in the show.
A fabulously fun international award-winning musical based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde The Musical, follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery, and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. This action-packed musical explodes on the stage with memorable songs and dynamic dances. Equal parts hilarious and heart-warming warming, this musical is so much fun it should be illegal!
Based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde The Musical stays true to form with a peppy score and playful book. This musical is ridiculously enjoyable from start to finish.
Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside-down, however, when her boyfriend dumps her so he can start getting serious about his life and attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle uses her charm to get into Harvard Law. At school, she struggles with peers, professors, and Warner Huntington. With the help of Paulette and Emmett, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.
This musical is relatively new to the theatre world, catering to the present-day's generation and culture. Legally Blonde The Musical is perfect for high school and community theatre, featuring a large ensemble and several big song-and-dance numbers.
