Legally Blonde @ Winslow Township High School

From sunny Malibu, California, to the Hallowed Halls of Harvard Law, one thing's for sure… Pink is always in style.

"Legally Blonde The Musical" hit the stage in 2007, starting its run in San Francisco and then later moving into the historic Palace Theatre on Broadway. Based on the 2001 movie of the same name, the musical features music and lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin and a book by Heather Hach. "Legally Blonde" follows Elle Woods, a sorority sister and fashion merchandise extraordinaire, as she chases her ex-boyfriend to the ends of the earth, or in this case, Harvard Law! This journey instead results in Elle finding a love for the law, and learning that she has the potential to be more than what is expected from her.

At the helm of the show was Keziah Awa as Elle Woods, who never failed to make her own choices, resulting in a unique take on the iconic bouncy blonde. Awa's unfaltering energy and natural charisma paired with her powerful vocals made her a joy to watch on stage. Opposite Awa was Colin Wallace as the scruffy yet sweet Emmett. Wallace wowed the audience with his impressive vocal abilities, and the pair's chemistry was undeniable.

Standout performances amongst the supporting cast included Paulette (Cass Juarez), whose impeccable comedic timing was matched only by the impressiveness of her vocal ability. Keegan Leach played the calculated and intimidating Professor Callahan, and did justice to the role with his strong acting choices. Jayla Berry's performance as Brooke Wyndham was phenomenal; singing beautifully while jumping rope proved no challenge for the actress.

Talent could be found throughout the entire cast. The ensemble of the show worked extremely well together, and kept the energy high throughout the entire show. Songs such as "What you Want" and "Legally Blonde Remix" that utilized the ensemble were some of the best in the production. The musical also had many standout featured performers, one worth mentioning was Enid Hoops (Kayla Goldsboro). Goldsboro's take on the character made a lasting impression on the audience, utilizing expert comedic timing.

Some very smart choices were clearly made when designing the technical aspects of the show. The use of colored lights was extremely effective, having the stage flash red during "Blood in the Water" and having a rainbow light up during "Gay or European" were effective ways to enhance the numbers. The set used its simplicity to its advantage, and in doing so was able to portray many different locations with very slight changes.

Winslow High School's production of "Legally Blonde" was "So Much Better" than audiences could have hoped for.
