Fol­low­ing their sell-out pro­duc­tion of Hair­spray last year, Oys­ter Lane Theatre Group take to the stage this year with the Broad­way smash-hit mu­si­cal Legally Blonde.

Based on the 2001 film star­ring Reece Wither­spoon, this fast mov­ing, lively, funny and en­ter­tain­ing show will fea­ture Sharon Clancy in the role of Elle Woods.

Sharon played her first lead role in Oys­ter Lane’s very first mu­si­cal, Grease, in 1994 and re­turns hav­ing since ap­peared in the West End in shows such as Mamma Mia and Mil­lion Dol­lar Quar­tet. Sharon is also the well-known face of Ir­ish TV in Wex­ford.

Legally Blonde tells the story of fash­ion ob­sessed Elle Woods who, upon los­ing her boyfriend when he heads to Har­vard Law School, de­cides that the only so­lu­tion is for her to en­rol there too. De­spite be­ing a long way from her com­fort zone and through many mis-ad­ven­tures she some­how man­ages to defy ex­pec­ta­tions while stay­ing true to her­self.

The show also fea­tures Gearoid McCauley as Em­met, Tom Joyce as Warner, Neal O’Leary as Cal­laghan, Yvette Walsh as Vivienne and Ma­jella Lon­dra as the long suf­fer­ing Paulette. Join­ing those are Cather­ine Dev­ereux, Ni­amh Bol­ger and Emily Brazzil play­ing Elle’s girl crew and a cast of al­most 60 play­ing over 30 other parts.

They say never work with chil­dren or an­i­mals so Oys­ter Lane are re­ally push­ing the boat out this year with a Chi­huahua named Lulu who plays the part of ‘Bruiser’ and a Bull­dog named Hunk who plays the part of Ru­fus. We’re told both have been de­mand­ing only pink dog treats in their ken­nels ever since they got the parts!

The show runs from Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 24 to Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 29 at 8 p.m. in the Dun Mhuire Theatre. Tick­ets can now be

booked on­line via oys­ter­lane. com or via Oys­ter Lane’s page on Face­book. All tick­ets are just €13 for open­ing night and €16 for adults and €13 for chil­dren for the rest of the week.
