Blonde is back for Em­pire run

Southport Visiter - - What’s On -

OMG, you guys, Legally Blonde The Mu­si­cal is com­ing to the Liver­pool Em­pire next week! The smash-hit Broad­way and West End Mu­si­cal, based on the much-loved movie, stars Rita Si­mons as Paulette Bon­a­fonte, Lu­cie Jones as Elle Woods and Bill Ward as Pro­fes­sor Cal­la­han.

The plot fol­lows beau­ti­ful and pop­u­lar soror­ity sis­ter Elle Woods, who loves to be pam­pered and is pas­sion­ate about pink.

When she is dumped by her boyfriend, Warner Hunt­ing­ton III, for a more se­ri­ous girl­friend, she puts down the credit cards and picks up the books.

Pack­ing up her trusty dog, bruiser, she bags her­self a place at Har­vard Law School to try to win him back.

With the sup­port of her new friends, she learns that you can be both smart and fash­ion­able.

Rita Si­mons is best known for play­ing Roxy Mitchell in BBC’s Easten­ders, for which she has won numer­ous awards and is one of Bri­tain’s best loved ac­tresses.

Lu­cie Jones, who rep­re­sented the UK at the Euro­vi­sion Song Con­test with Never Give Up On You, and re­cently starred as Mau­reen in the 20th an­niver­sary tour of Rent, has played Elle Woods be­fore in the Le­ices­ter Curve pro­duc­tion and was a fi­nal­ist in the 2009 se­ries of The X Fac­tor.

Bill Ward is best known for his work on two of the coun­try’s lead­ing soaps, Emmerdale and Corona­tion Street, but Bill is no stranger to the stage and has per­formed in Spa­malot and The Tem­pest.

This all-singing, all-danc­ing ro­man­tic com­edy is a fun-filled, filled, feel feel-good good pink fest.

Legally Blonde The Mu­si­cal comes to the Liver­pool Em­pire, June 5-9. Tick­ets from £12.
