Bridgewater presents Legally Blonde JR

Students had Worsley thinking pink when they presented their 2024 production of Legally Blonde JR. Show-stopping performances from a talented young cast, which featured Year 8’s Lily Knights as the iconic Elle Woods, ensured success as actors and audience alike revelled in this fun and upbeat musical.

The production follows the adventures of Delta Nu sorority president Elle Woods (“a Gemini with a double Capricorn moon”) as she tries to win back the affections of her ex-boyfriend by earning a Harvard law degree. Once at school, she is challenged by her peers and her professors, but with the help of some new friends, Elle realises her true potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.

Mrs Embrey, Director of Music at Bridgewater, says “Legally Blonde JR. may be a comedic, light-hearted show, but it also explores serious themes of self-discovery and independence which resonate with people of all ages. Our students were totally ‘psyched’ with their production and we hope everyone enjoyed the show.”

With a book by Heather Hach, music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin, Legally Blonde JR is based on the book by Amanda Brown and the hit Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer motion picture starring Reese Witherspoon, which was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture. Legally Blonde the Musical opened at Broadway’s Palace Theatre in April 2007.

As a student, you are the most amazing discovery you will ever make.
