Harvard’s beloved blonde takes the Keokuk stage with a glittery pink storm in this fun and upbeat adaptation of the hit film and award-winning Broadway musical.
Youth from Iowa, Missouri and Illinois will bring this Great River Players Summer Youth Theater’s production to life at the Grand Theater in Keokuk, Iowa from July 8th through the 10th.
Based on the award-winning Broadway musical and the smash hit motion picture, Legally Blonde The Musical JR. is a fabulously fun journey of self-empowerment and expanding horizons. The show’s instantly recognizable songs are filled with humor, wit and sass — leaving cast members and audiences alike seeing pink!
Clark County youth Izzy Brotherton, Aynsley Harmon, Kathrynn Schmitz and Hayden West will be appearing in this weekend’s production. Other cast members include Kenzie Ayers, Abigail Berg, Hayden Finch, Elijah Gibbs, Zoe Halbert, Carter Killoren, Kole Krueger, Rachel Olsen, Felicia Ralf, Jay Smith, Darby Tackes, TJ Thornberg and Zion Wardlow.
Legally Blonde JR. follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. When Elle’s boyfriend, Warner, dumps her and heads to Harvard, claiming she’s not “serious” enough, Elle takes matters into her own hands, crafting a showy song-and-dance personal essay and charming her way into law school. Befriending classmate, Emmett, and spunky hairdresser, Paulette, along the way, Elle finds that books and looks aren’t mutually exclusive. As Elle begins outsmarting her peers, she realizes that law may be her natural calling after all.
The Friday, July 8th and Saturday, July 9th performances begin at 7:30 pm and the Sunday, July 10th matinee will start at 2:00 pm. A free will donation will be collected at the door to help cover the costs of the production.
