The hilarious comedy is from the book by Heather Hach with music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamen and is based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Motion picture. “Legally Blonde” was presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International. The musical was directed by Casey Martin, Melody Barnett, and Nate Wehmeyer. Light director was Mark Staten with Quin Staten running the spotlights. Lori Staten was the food director.
