Project Description

Jack Bradford, Director

I remember when Legally Blonde hit the cinemas in 2001 and was made into a Broadway Musical in 2007. The costume designer for the B-Way production was a good high school and college friend of mine. I watched with great interest hoping it would become a junior show for our kids and here it is nine years later.

We all love the boy meets girl, boy loses girl scenario. But in the footsteps of Funny Girl and Millie, it is the girl who loses the boy and finds her way and meaning in life.

This production has great songs like So Much Better and Legally Blonde and the show is filled with ‘pink’ and ‘dogs’ which makes it cool to be a powerful young girl in this day and age.

The fast paced movement of the scenes and the comic situations make a great experience for our audiences. I want to thank the whole production team for working so hard on this, our 61st show. I also want to thank the tech team and all the volunteers for their hard work.

Thank you to the Albany Hills Church for supporting us in our rehearsals and productions
and finally thank you to all the parents and aspiring young actors who make the production go from beginning to end.

Now sit back, relax and enjoy Brisbane Junior Theatre’s production of Legally Blonde Jr.

 

Synopsis

Based on the award-winning Broadway musical and the smash hit motion picture, Legally Blonde JR. is a fabulously fun journey of self-empowerment and expanding horizons. The show’s instantly recognisable songs are filled with humor, wit and sass – leaving cast members and audiences alike seeing pink.

Legally Blonde JR. follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery, and scandal in pursuit of her dreams.

When Elle’s high school boyfriend Warner dumps her and heads to Harvard, claiming she is not ‘serious’ enough, Elle takes matters into her own hands, crafting a showy song-and-dance personal essay and charming her way into law school. Befriending classmate Emmett and spunky hairdresser Paulette along the way, Elle finds that books and looks are not mutually exclusive. As Elle begins outsmarting her peers, she realises that law may be her natural calling after all.

Legally Blonde JR. features large, energetic dance numbers with an expandable cast of sorority sisters, law school students, hairdressers and more.
