Big snaps for cheery musical performed by musical choir
IT'S the ultimate chick flick: a sassy movie with real heart.
I must admit, however, I just couldn't picture Legally Blonde as a musical.
But Rockhampton Musical Union Choir has changed my mind.
The group has done a fabulous job bringing Elle Woods' story to life in Legally Blonde: The Musical.
From the vibrant opening number, Omigod You Guys, I was enthralled (and trying to suppress the urge to get up and join in).
For those not familiar with the story, Legally Blonde opens with the girls of Sorority Delta Nu anticipating the engagement of president Elle Woods (Emma McGuire) to Warner Huntington III (Alexander Harris).
When things don't quite go to plan, Elle gets accepted into Harvard Law School in a bid to win Warner back.
With the help of some new friends, Elle learns to embrace being blonde and solves a murder case to boot.
With a stellar cast and crew, the Rockhampton Musical Union Choir has created an energetic musical for the whole family to enjoy.
Emma McGuire shone in the role of preppy Elle Woods, while Justin Stewart is loveable as studious Emmett Forrest.
And the sorority sisters Serena (Tegan Garget), Margot (Tegan Devine) and Pilar (Maddi Twidale) are the sort of best friends every girl needs cheering them on.
In his role as Professor Callahan, Joel Duffy is sufficiently bloodthirsty, while Meegan Conway perfectly embodies the frosty Vivienne.
But for me, the standout was Glenn Beattie as Kyle the delivery guy, wooed by the famous Bend and Snap.
And a review of Legally Blond wouldn't be complete without mentioning canine stars Bruiser (Chi Chi) and Rufus (Teddy). Remind me to ask for their paw-tographs. Snaps to the whole team for the fun, feisty and fabulous Legally Blonde.
