Legally Blonde - The Musical

Legally Blonde - The Musical

CPCC Summer Theatre’s season of hot shows at cool prices comes to a close in July with the Charlotte region’s premiere of “Legally Blonde – The Musical.”

When star sorority girl Elle Woods gets dumped by a boyfriend who is looking for a more serious girl, the UCLA Fashion Merchandising major puts down her credit cards and hits the books to go where no Delta Nu has ever gone before: Harvard Law! Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style. A hit on Broadway, “Legally Blonde” is a feel-good musical that will have you on your feet cheering for Elle and her friends. From the opening notes of “Omigod You Guys” to the finale, “Find My Way,” you’ll understand why this perky charmer with a penchant for pink has delighted theatre audiences since the show opened on Broadway in 2007.

On stage July 13 – 21, at the beautiful Halton Theater on the CPCC Central Campus, “Legally Blonde” is the perfect summer show. Great tickets are just $18 and $22. Best of all, a special BOGO (buy-one ticket, get-one free) offer for the Wednesday, July 18, 7:30 p.m. performance makes this the perfect and MOST AFFORDABLE summer show!
