Texas State University presents its "pinkest" production yet! "Legally Blonde the Musical" is about to rock your world this November at the exquisite Patti Strickel Harrison Theater. A fabulously fun Pop musical based off the 2001 movie classic of the same name, follows the transformation of Delta Nu beauty Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery, and scandal in the pursuit of her dreams.

The 2007 original Broadway production enjoyed a successful run at the Palace Theater, receiving seven Tony nominations and a live recording spot on MTV. Following this, MTV filmed a reality show featuring a rigorous audition process to find a Blonde hopeful to replace Bailey Hanks in portraying the next Elle Woods on Broadway. 

Texas State's take

Texas State's production fantasizes the world of Elle Woods with a chic new twist, including the astute use of social media and a dynamic theme of female empowerment. You will leave the theatre humming the show's most memorable tunes.

You will laugh and (ugly) cry as you are taken along a fantastical journey with your new friends from Delta Nu. 

But most importantly, you will understand that "Legally Blonde" is more than just a feel-good, female-driven story with music. It's a tale with electrifying characters that speaks to every audience member. It's an adventure that demonstrates ambition, tenacity, and a fearlessness that can only emulate from within.

Social Media

The team will be documenting the whole process on social media through Twitter and Instagram, found by searching Texas State Legally Blonde. Each week, different members of the cast, crew, and creative team will be taking over the "Legally Blonde" social media accounts to provide you with an inside look into everything Blonde.

When is it?

The production runs November 15-20th, Tuesday thru Sunday at 7:30pm as well as a matinee performance at 2pm on Sunday.
