Legally Blonde returning to Liverpool Empire
Provided By: Liverpool Empire Theatre
Omigod you guys!
Liverpool Empire’s Creative Learning department have been working on an exciting new project that has given local young performing arts enthusiasts the opportunity to star in the North West’s amateur premiere production of Legally Blonde: The Musical.
Following on from the success of last year’s Youth Theatre production of Sister Act, the Liverpool Empire’s Creative Learning department was invited to present one of the first amateur productions of Legally Blonde: The Musical, a year before its general amateur release.
The Empire’s Youth Theatre and Youth Dance companies work under the guidance of industry professionals, which enables them to experience a professional environment, preparing them for the world of work within the theatre industry and many of those involved go on to pursue professional careers in performing arts.
Both performing arts groups have been meeting regularly and working hard in preparation of the full scale musical, which plays at the Empire Theatre from Friday August 21-Saturday August 22.
Creative Learning Manager Natalie Flynn commented: "Legally Blonde is such a great show and one that the young people can relate to, as it explores themes such as following your dreams and being true to yourself. ATG launched the first tour of Legally Blonde the Musical in Liverpool so this production is extra special to us. We’re honoured to be chosen as one of the first to perform an amateur production of Legally Blonde."
A winner of seven major awards including the coveted Best Musical 2011 (Olivier Awards), the all-singing, all-dancing romantic comedy Legally Blonde: The Musical is about knowing who you are and showing what you’ve got!
