OMG! Blockbuster hit musical Legally Blonde is coming to Hertford this week.
Get your pink on and join Hertford Dramatic & Operatic Society (HD&OS) at Hertford Theatre for this all singing, all dancing, feel-good musical comedy that is so much fun it shouldn’t be legal.
Legally Blonde the Musical can be seen on stage from Tuesday, October 18 through to Saturday, October 22.
This award-winning Broadway musical is based on the hit film of the same name.
It follows college sweetheart Elle Woods, played by Gemma Pobjoy, as she puts down the credit card, hits the books and heads for Harvard Law School in pursuit of her boyfriend Warner, who just dumped her for someone more serious.
At law school she encounters Professor Callahan, played by Jim Markey, and proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style.
Featured in HD&OS’s production are none other than Coco the Chihuahua and Winnie the bulldog, both making their debuts on the Hertford Theatre stage, playing Elle Woods’ very cosseted lapdog Bruiser, and Paulette’s much-loved bulldog Rufus.
The HD&OS production is directed by Alexandra James, choreographed by Alison Latchford, and with Andy Merrifield as musical director.
A spokesman said: “This is a great opportunity for local audiences to see this fabulous and very cheesy musical comedy.”
Director Alexandra James added: “I’ve never worked with such a dynamic and enthusiastic cast and crew.
“Although if we’re not careful our talented dogs could so easily steal the limelight!
“The whole production is a lively roller coaster of musical theatre and we’re all having such fun with it.”
The cast all live in Hertford, Ware, Welwyn Garden City and surrounding areas and many perform with a number of other local theatre companies, including Broxbourne Theatre Club, Ware Operatic and EHOS.
The show starts at 7.30pm, from Tuesday through to Saturday, with a matinee at 2.30pm on Saturday.
Tickets cost from £14.50 to £18.50, depending on the performance.
