MORRISTOWN, NJ - This spring, the award winning Morristown High School Theatre program is taking on its biggest challenge yet in their performance of Legally Blonde The Musical.
Over the course of three months, the MHS theatre department will put together a show filled with elaborate sets, incredible lighting, eye-catching costumes, and exuberant characters. There really is no show that compares to the infamous Legally Blonde - between the live animals, the crazy dances, and the abundance of pink - MHS is the perfect program to embrace this bubbly fun.
With a cast of over 40 students, a crew of nearly 60, just shy of 20 members of the pit orchestra, and 4 person directing team, MHS is fully equipped to put on this ambitious spectacle. This year, there are going to be four main performances (as opposed to the standard three of years prior), a special Senior Citizens show and a brand new Sensory Friendly Show - bringing the total to SIX performances!
The Senior Citizens show is a performance in which local elders are invited to watch a final dress rehearsal free-of-charge and are treated to locally-made baked goods and coffee.
The Sensory Friendly show, which will be on Tuesday, March 21st at 6:00pm is also FREE and a wonderful addition to the MHS Theatre show run.The performance is directed towards individuals that may be more sensitive to certain louder sounds or flashy sights, and will accommodate their needs accordingly whilst allowing them to enjoy an exciting show.
To add to the plethora of opportunities that Legally Blonde will offer, the opening night performance will be dedicated to Morristown’s beloved Hedda - an FMS 8th grader battling cancer. 10% of all proceeds on opening night will be dedicated to cancer research.
This year’s musical is going to be a monumental experience that you certainly won’t want to miss. The standard performances will occur from Thursday March 23rd through Sunday March 26th. Buy your tickets now, because they’re going fast!
