Theatre lovers pre­fer Blonde

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Music Theatre -

PERTH au­di­ences are learn­ing how to “bend and snap” as WAAPA per­forms its first con­tem­po­rary mu­si­cal at Re­gal Theatre un­til June 20.

Legally Blonde stars Kate Thomas in the lead role of Elle Woods along­side a 36-strong cast of sec­ond and third year mu­sic theatre stu­dents.

There is also a 20-piece orches­tra in the pit, and a pro­duc­tion and de­sign team of more than 60 stu­dents.

Based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the 2001 film star­ring Reese Wither­spoon, the pro­duc­tion fol­lows the de­cep­tively ditzy blonde who grad­u­ates top of her Har­vard law class.
