Samohi Theatre is excited to present Legally Blonde – The Musical.

Legally Blonde – The Musical explores the journey of Elle Woods, a superficial but sweet sorority girl from Malibu, who heads to Harvard to win back her college boyfriend after he dumps her to carve out a more serious life for himself. More fashion savvy than studious, Elle struggles to fit in at Harvard.

From santa monica high school Director Kate Barraza: "On her quest, Elle Woods follows her heart and stays true to herself, despite being humiliated, ridiculed, embarrassed, sexually harassed, and deflated. Unlike many people faced with challenges, she approaches her situation with humility, an open mind, and sheer determination.

"Elle is an inspiration -- she is intelligent, determined, and picks herself up when she falls. It has been a pleasure to watch the two students who play Elle Woods embody these characteristics with their own unique interpretation of the character. It is evident that both actors are empowered by the opportunity to play a female hero. We also see the unwavering support of Elle's "sisters," through the theatrical devise of a Greek Chorus, as they help tell the story and lead Elle through her journey.

"This talented cast of characters has dedicated their time, energy, and talent to portray the story of Legally Blonde and have done so with gusto and grace. It has truly been an honor to direct them. We would not be able to tell this story in this way without our dedicated technical theatre students who have worked tirelessly to make this production a success. Legally Blonde is a joyful, uplifting story that celebrates both individuality and the success you can only find by being true to yourself."

IMPORTANT: This is a masked event. ID and proof of COVID-19 vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to show time are also required. A negative test result must show the name of the person presenting the record.
