The Upper School Performances of “Legally Blonde The Musical” Sell Out
That’s a wrap on the fall production of “Legally Blonde The Musical.” Agnes Irwin’s new Theater Director and teacher, Sarah DeNight, was thrilled that her first production would be “Legally Blonde The Musical,” a show that bills itself as “the ultimate Broadway tribute to girl power.” “Legally Blonde is a big, fun, and upbeat production,” she said. “For most of the cast, it is a brand-new experience, as big productions were impossible during the pandemic. The show is ambitious but presents an opportunity for so many students to shine. The girls have tremendous buy-in, and I love their enthusiasm and integrity. Their growth has been incredible.”
DeNight was also excited about the flexibility the creative production allows students working in set design, lighting, and costuming. “A well-rounded theater program is a collaboration; for some, the creative outlet is singing and dancing, while for others, it is costume design. I hope to help all my students find the bravery, confidence, and joy that theater can cultivate, no matter their role.”
The cast and crew played to sold out houses of enthusiastic fans. Leila Rodriguez ’23 took the stage as Elle Woods, last having appeared as Rosie in “Mamma Mia!” two years ago. Congratulations to the entire thirty-three person cast including faculty guests and two dogs as Bruiser Woods and Rufus! Well done.
Bravo to the following seniors who were part of the cast and crew:
