Oyster Lane launches Legally Blonde
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.
