One of the biggest and best musicals of the 21st century is heading to Wirral.
Legally Blonde is a fun, lively and fast-paced show which teaches you that you can do anything you want, and be whatever you want to be if you put your mind to it.
It tells the tale of Elle Woods, a Malibu Barbie/Sorority girl who gets dumped by boyfriend Warner because she’s not “serious” enough.
Determined to win him back and prove him wrong, she follows him across the country to Harvard Law School and, with the help of the lovely Emmett Forrest, realises her true potential, secures a spot as an intern on the biggest murder case of the year and, well, you’ll have to wait and see.
Legally Blonde will take to the stage of the Floral Pavilion in New Brighton from September 8-10.
It is being performed by the award-winning Ellesmere Port Musical Theatre Company who last year scooped the NODA gong for Best Musical for their production of Sister Act.
Northern Ireland-born Chloe Donley takes the lead as Elle, with recent university graduate Alessio Scappaticci starring opposite her as Warner Huntington III.
Chloe is a performing arts teacher who moved to England to train at the University of Chester.
Prior to Legally Blonde, she has starred in various productions around the UK such as The Witches of Eastwick and West Side Story.
Alessio has previously played the parts of Link Larkin in Hairspray, with Frodsham-based Zodiac, and Curley in Oklahoma! with Mid Cheshire to name a few.
The show is being directed by Wesley Ray who is currently studying for his Masters degree in Making Theatre. He joined EPMTC last year stepping into the role of Eddie in their production of Sister Act.
Craig Price is back in the seat as musical director with the company for the 14th year.
Over the years, the Cheshire music graduate has worked on more than 80 productions, musicals, concerts and pantomimes working with both professional and amateur production companies.
Tickets are priced at £20 (£19 for concessions) and are available from the Floral Pavilion at www.floralpavilion.com or by calling the box office on 0151 666 0000.
