Young per­form­ers have some blonde am­bi­tions

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - Cal­lum Robert­son

Hamil­ton Dis­trict Youth The­atre are back this year with their lat­est pro­duc­tion of Legally Blonde the Mu­si­cal.

Af­ter the suc­cess of Bugsy Malone, per­formed by the ju­nior cast mem­bers in April, the se­nior cast mem­bers will be per­form­ing Legally Blonde the Mu­si­cal at Hamil­ton Town House on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 7 and Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 8. Based on the novel and 2001 hit movie, Legally Blonde tells the story of soror­ity girl and home­com­ing queen Elle Woods – a fash­ion mer­chan­dis­ing stu­dent madly in love with her col­lege sweet­heart, Warner. When Warner dumps Elle for some­one more “se­ri­ous”, Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books and sets out where no Delta Nu has gone be­fore – Har­vard Law.

But along the way, Elle be­gins to re­alise that maybe she doesn’t need Warner af­ter all, and proves that be­ing true to your­self never goes out of style.

HDYT’s very own Elle Woods, Anna Ly­nas, had this to say about the show: “I’m so ex­cited to be a part of this amaz­ing pro­duc­tion – re­hearsals are go­ing great and we’re like one big, fab­u­lous fam­ily!

“It’s such a fun show and all the cast and crew have been work­ing so hard to make it a suc­cess.”

This all-singing, all-danc­ing, feel­good mu­si­cal com­edy is sure to be the most fash­ion­able ticket in town, so get yours while you can.

Tick­ets are avail­able to pur­chase at the Town House box of­fice and on­line, with prices so good they should be il­le­gal – only £10 for adults and £9 for con­ces­sions.

A dis­count is also avail­able for groups.

Ear­lier this year the the­atre group’s ju­nior cast re­ceived great re­views af­ter putting on a fab­u­lous pro­duc­tion of Bugsy Malone.

The 40-strong cast per­formed ex­cel­lently, each do­ing their re­spec­tive roles jus­tice.

The leads were played by Nairn Archer as Bugsy Malone, Grace Robert­son as Blousy, Ja­cob Duffy as Fat Sam and Jaya Diarra as Tal­lu­lah.

The cast meet and re­hearse on a Thurs­day evening in Hamil­ton Gram­mar School and usu­ally hold open au­di­tions each year for those in­ter­ested in join­ing the club and tak­ing part in some fan­tas­tic and en­ter­tain­ing pro­duc­tions

through­out the year.
