Legally Blonde

Legally Blonde
Memorial Auditorium at Progress Energy Center

College sweetheart and sorority star Elle Woods doesn’t take “no” for an answer. So when her boyfriend dumps her for someone “serious,” Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books and sets out where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law School. Starring as "Elle" is Autumn Hurlbert, Broadway actress and runner-up in MTV's reality show "LEGALLY BLONDE: The Search for the Next Elle Woods." Joining Elle on stage is "Chico the Chihuahua" - the original dog from the Broadway production. Based on the hit movie, LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL is an award- winning Broadway sensation and winner of “Best New Musical” at the 2011 Laurence Olivier Awards in London. This production is an all-singing, all-dancing, feel good musical comedy that is one “Elle of a show”!
