Legally Blonde first rehearsal photos and story: MiSociety 13 August 2012
Legally Blonde set to become musical lore in Sydney Legally Blonde the musical was officially launched to the media at the show’s first day of rehearsals at the Rehearsal Room of ABC Building in Ultimo, Sydney.
John Frost, co-producer of Legally Blonde, welcomed and introduced the leading cast members Lucy Durack, Rob Mills, David Harris, Helen Dallimore, Erika Heynatz and Cameron Daddo along with the rest of the troupe. John Frost went on to thank the current NSW Government for their enthusiastic assistance in the marketing of new productions in Sydney both state wide and internationally.
George Souris, the NSW Minister for Tourism, Major Events and the Arts, also welcomed the assembled cast and international creative team to Sydney and wished them all luck in delivering what he was confident would be a fantastic production. The Minister underlined the NSW Government was championing the goal of making Sydney the capital city in the Southern Hemisphere for premiering musical theatre.
Jerry Mitchell, the Broadway Director and original director of the musical Legally Blonde productions in New York and London, will be directing the Sydney show. Jerry gave us the key clue that wrapped up the pure entertainment of the show “In Legally Blonde is the message that if you are true to yourself – incredible things can happen”.
Lucy Durack, the immensely talented ‘blonde bombshell’ of the musical, along with supporting cast performed a number from ‘Legally Blonde’ whilst the tiniest of the cast members, mini pups, Quinn and Sparrow, did their best to steal the whole scene.
Legally Blonde promises to be a musical that will capture the theatre going public in Sydney very much a musical of ‘today’ that will resonate with young and mature alike.
Legally Blonde has its Australian Premier opening at the Sydney Lyric Theatre, The Star, on 4th October 2012.
