The Artz Centre’s production of Legally Blonde has, unfortunately, come to an end. The musical was performed at Lathom Highschool in Skelmersdale from the 14th – 16th of June, comprising of both evening and matinee showings. The production showcased local talent and added a modern twist to Legally Blonde.
Legally Blonde explores the transformation of Elle Woods, a love-struck sorority sister turned lawyer once she follows her ex-boyfriend to Harvard Law. As the school year unfolds, Elle quickly learns that she’s smarter than she thought and with her ensemble of unique friends Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style.
“I loved the show that much, that I went to see it 3 times!” – Satisfied Facebook Reviewer.
With the help of our incredibly talented junior and adult ensemble cast (ages 11-22), we garnered praise from the Lathom Highschool community as well as certain outside communities for our production, something which can be seen on the reviews section of our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/artzcentre/.
Our ensemble featured 2 lead role debuts: local girls Grace McDivitt and Emily Perry who both played Elle Woods. It also starred Ben Rigby, the 17-year-old rugby player and actor whom played Emmet in his 15th Artz Centre production. Congratulations are also in order for Aaron Ormesher (Professor Callaghan), Rosa Taylor (Kiki the Colourist), Lydia Sneesby (Serena) and Megan Powell (Vivienne Kensington) whom were cast in their 30th role in an Arts Centre production.
