A feast of pink awaits at Matthew Flinders Anglican College. Students will present the iconic American musical, Legally Blonde, at the Flinders Performance Centre from 18-20 March.
Tickets are open to the public and available for $25 per person at
Based on the novel and the hit-movie of the same name, Legally Blonde is a fun, upbeat story of self-discovery. It will be brought to life by the College's large cast of 60 students across Years 8-12.
The show’s musical score is presented by a bespoke ensemble made up of selected music staff and students at the College. The musicians are of a calibre to meet the challenging technical and musical requirements.
Flinders Head of Creative Arts, Mr Danny Parker said the students had grown in confidence and ability during the three-month production journey.
“Producing a contemporary musical is something of a rollercoaster, and Legally Blonde is a demanding yet rewarding project,” Danny said.
“The rehearsals have been a blend of calm, dedicated hard work, and sheer musical madness. We have sung together, danced together and most importantly laughed together," he said.
“Students have embraced the whole-of-company music pieces as well as the delicate nuanced musical moments with enthusiasm and increasing maturity.
“The Flinders Creative Arts Program is all about creating opportunities for our students. We want students to explore their creativity and develop their confidence, skills and courage.
“Staff have enjoyed the opportunity to mentor, challenge and support this student group. There have been new skills to learn across theatre, vocal training, music, choreography, stage management, lighting and design.”
Upcoming student productions through the Flinders Creative Arts Program in 2021 include The 25th Annual Putnam Spelling Bee and You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. There are also a range of smaller productions in the works.
Legally Blonde follows the story of Elle, a blonde socialite, who travels to Harvard Law School in pursuit of a lost love.
At first, Elle’s journey appears trivial, however, as the story unfolds she discovers her own potential. Elle soon finds that hard work and dedication, together with integrity, can unlock hidden potential.
