2024 Legally Blonde – Waitlist Only

Two-Week Musical Theater Production Camp Filled – Waitlist Only

Directed by Caroline Huntoon

Music and Lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin
Book by Heather Hach
Based on Novel by Amanda Brown and the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Motion Picture

Based on the award-winning Broadway musical and the smash hit motion picture, Legally Blonde The Musical 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!

Legally Blonde  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. 

This camp will offer a unique theatrical opportunity to bring this famous production to life in YPT’s Blackbox Theatre.  YPT’s blackbox space offers an intimacy that you won’t find in larger theatres. This gives the actor a stronger sense of connection to the audience and teaches one’s body and voice to adjust a performance when playing to a smaller house.  Every day of camp presents a new opportunity to build skills in acting, music and voice, movement, stagecraft, song interpretation, and improvisation.  The camp culminates in live theater performances of the Broadway Junior Version of this production.

Camp Times: 9:00am to 3:00pm
