This spring, Millersville University’s student-run All Campus Musical Organization (ACMO) is presenting “Legally Blonde: The Musical.” All performances will be directed by ACMO president and middle-level education senior Seth Sponhouse and will be held in the Clair Performance Hall in the Winter Visual and Performing Arts Center.

The musical, which is based on the film that starred Reese Witherspoon, ran on Broadway and was nominated for seven Tony Awards. The American National Tour performed it all over the country, and it has been shown in London and has toured in the United Kingdom.

In the musical, UCLA Delta Nu sorority president and valley girl Elle Woods is dumped by her boyfriend because he wants a girlfriend who is more serious. However, Elle doesn’t take “no” for an answer. Instead, she ditches her sorority girl ways, starts taking her studies more seriously and follows her ex-boyfriend to where no Delta Nu has ever gone before:  Harvard Law School. Even though she is ridiculed and disapproved of by her classmates, Elle is determined to win her ex back and defy expectations while staying true to herself.

Performances for “Legally Blonde: The Musical” include April 4-6 at 7:30 p.m. and April 7 at 2 p.m.

Tickets cost $10 for general admission, $7 for students with MU ID and senior citizens and $5 for students with MU ID super saver.
