Do you have a signature colour?

Maybe — like Elle Woods — you’re partial to pink.

Or perhaps you favour shades of puce or chartreuse.

No matter, because whatever your preferred colour palette  Brookswood Secondary’s presentation of Legally Blonde, the musical is sure to be one of the highlights of the season.

Hitting the stage from Wednesday to Saturday, Feb. 6-9 and Feb. 13-16 at 7 p.m., beloved blonde, Elle Woods will take audiences by storm in this upbeat musical about a young woman’s journey of self-discovery.

Based on the motion picture starring Reese Witherspoon, Legally Blonde, the musical has a peppy score, plenty of singing and dancing and is fun from start to finish.

Elle Woods appears to have it all. But her life is turned upside-down when her boyfriend dumps her so he can get serious about his life and attending Harvard Law School. Determined to get him back, Elle uses her charm to get into Harvard Law.

At school, she struggles with her peers, professors, and her ex — Warner Huntington. With the help of Paulette and Emmett, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.

The musical features a cast, orchestra, and crew of 75 students and one dog.

All tickets are $12, available at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/309633 or by contacting Sharon Conrad at sconrad@sd35.bc.ca or 604-530-2141, ext. 241
