After weeks of summer rehearsals, a cast of young locals are set to put on one of the most iconic and certainly rosiest musical theater performances of all time.
As part of this year’s Wyvern Theater Summer Youth Project, the group of people from Swindon and surrounding areas, all aged 9 to 21, will recreate the endearing film-turned-musical Legally Blonde.
The movie/musical tells the story of Elle Woods, a society girl who dreams of getting married and ends up going to Harvard Law School.
After applications opened in February and auditions in March, the chosen lucky talents have been rehearsing for the past few weeks for their performance of the award-winning show on stage.
In June, a search was also launched to find a dog in the city who could play Elle Woods’ iconic dog, Bruiser.
The time has come for the show to take place with the first performance taking place on Thursday August 18th at 7.30pm.
Other performances will take place on Friday at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Saturday at 2:30 p.m. and Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
A production spokesperson said: “A fabulously fun, internationally award-winning musical based on the beloved film, Legally Blonde, follows Elle Woods’ transformation as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery and scandal at pursuing his dreams.
“This sing-and-dance romantic comedy is a fun and heartwarming pink festival, so bend over and grab your tickets now!”
