“This high-energy show will appeal to all ages,” said, Benjamin Wolfe, director of performing arts at Hilton Head Preparatory School. “Songs like ‘Omigod,’ ‘Positive’ and ‘So Much Better,’ plus incredible dance numbers will transport the audience to a fun escape where they can sit back, relax, laugh and enjoy the craziness of the girls of Delta Nu.” The production also makes entertaining use of a Greek chorus of sorority sisters, who comment, Supremes-style, on Elle’s plight.
Based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the major motion picture starring Reese Witherspoon, the stage production premiered in pre-Broadway tryouts in San Francisco, then, in April 2007 when it moved to Broadway. Legally Blonde, The Musical carries the heartfelt themes of sisterhood, perseverance, loyalty and overcoming all odds.
The sizeable cast of 31 Hilton Head Prep students includes 15 who are new to the Hilton Head Prep stage. Senior leads include Alli Kenneweg as Elle Woods, Mark Oppenheimer as Warner Huntington III, Taylor Calamari as Emmett Forrest and sophomore Hannah Simpson as Paulette Bonofonte. The music is led by Musical Director Brandon Kaufman. Choreographer Kathleen Watkins returns to Hilton Head Prep, bringing years of experience in dance instruction – including her work as Dance Captain in the Broadway cast of Fosse – to the production.
The successfully executed shows produced by Hilton Head Prep evolve from much hard work on the part of everyone involved. Students often rehearse six nights a week in preparation, while concurrently, students in the technical theatre class design and build the intricately crafted sets that fill the vast space of Hilton Head High’s Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC)
