Harvard's beloved blonde takes the stage by pink storm in this fun, upbeat story of self-discovery. 

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, this musical is so much fun, it should be illegal!

Legally Blonde, The Musical will take you from the sorority house to the halls of justice with Broadway's brightest new heroine (and, of course, her chihuahua, Bruiser).

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.

Curtain opens on Friday, Sept. 30 at 8 pm! Other performances are Oct. 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16. Tickets are $16 Seniors/ Students and $18 Adults. Group discount for 10 or more - Call 540-349-8760 and leave a message. Come out for a fun-filled performance!

Characters:
  Theo Maske: (30-40 yrs.) - LEAD: A burly muscular fireplug of a man with a buzz cut. A man of his time and his country.  Believes the Man's place is the head of the house, and the Woman's place is in the kitchen.  Little does he know...
Louise Maske: (20-30 yrs.) - LEAD: Very pretty, mid-twenties, Theo's wife.  Delightful, charming, and warm. She is an ideal woman of her time.  Will need to be comfortable with stage kissing and being flirtatious.
Gertrude Deuter: (30-50 yrs.) - SUPPORTING: The neighbor upstairs. A busybody who lives vicariously through Louise.  Often the show stealer.  Will need to be comfortable with stage kissing
Frank Versati: (30-50 yrs.) - SUPPORTING: An elegant gentleman who makes the ladies swoon.  He is also a poet who seeks out Louise.  Will need to be comfortable with stage kissing
Benjamin Cohen: (30-40 yrs.) - SUPPORTING: A hypochondriac, any body type, but must be very physical and use it for humor. He's also asthmatic.  Another who can steal the show.
Klinglehoff: (60-80 yrs.) - BIT PART: An elderly man. An extremely old fashion widower and a prude! 
The King: (40-60 yrs) - BIT PART: He's The King. 
 
Although it takes place in Germany, no accents are required.  Director is asking for American accents so the comedic timing and wit can be highlighted. 
 
The Underpants Synopsis
 
Play takes place in Dusseldorf in 1910.  Theo and his wife Louise have a vacant room in their apartment.  One unfortunate morning, while Louise attends a parade to try to catch a glimpse of the king, her underpants fall to her ankles.  Theo is humiliated: "I can't believe this happened to me!"  Suddenly the couple has not one, but two renters: Versati and Cohen.  Having witnessed the panty scandal, both men secretly confess their love to Louise and begin to battle for her favor.  Louise's nosy upstairs neighbor Gertrude advises Louise to welcome an affair.  As Versati and Cohen squabble over who is the better man, and Theo remains oblivious to both the renters' intentions and his wife's charm, Louise begins to learn a powerful lesson in how she can obtain what she desires.

HALLOWEEN COSTUME COLLECTION: 
PRINCESS GENEVIEVE'S 7th ANNUAL 
DRESS UP DRIVE 

What is the Dress Up Drive?
Princess Genevieve started the Halloween Dress Up Drive seven years ago collecting children's Halloween costumes. You can donate for our drop off boxes at FCT during October's performances of Legally Blonde: The Musical. 


What can I donate?
We accept donations of cleaned dress up clothes and costumes in good condition. We ask that you only share the costumes that are new or clean and in good enough condition that you would want your own child to play in. We cannot accept torn, ripped, or dirty items to give to a needy child. We go through these costumes ourselves before sending them to their new homes. 

Why get involved? 
Whether with friends or alone playing in their room, a box of dress up clothes holds endless imaginative possibilities for boys and girls! Princess Genevieve's fondest memories are held in long days of childhood that never seemed to end. Those days were full of "pretend", dressing up, and getting lost in a story in her own mind. 

We hope you'll consider donating cleaned & gently loved, outgrown Halloween costumes to be donated to local families just in time for Trick-or-Treat! If you have knowledge of families in a needy situation- we will keep it confidential and get costumes directly to you, instead of sharing family names. Email  jennifer@kingdomofazuria.com or visit  www.kingdomofazuria.com for more information.
