Following their production of “Zombie Prom”, the theater department will perform “Legally Blonde” starring junior Ari Hart as Elle Woods. Opening night will be Wednesday, March 14, and continue through Sunday, March 18.
Theater Director Dan Bullington believes the production is unique to the area. Bullington said, “We have a lot of girls involved in theater and there are a lot of girl roles. It’s based around a sorority and the main character is a girl. It’s also a fun show, and it’s contemporary. No one else is doing it around here.”
The play is an exciting musical rendition of the film, that has a very similar plot to the film. Ari Hart said, “It’s really great being the lead because it’s a dream role for me.” The Clarksville theater department plans on putting on an entertaining production with the help of an experienced director and a dedicated cast.
Clarksville’s theater department considers themselves a close-knit, family like group that has real chemistry. Senior Baily Gravely said, “What I like about being in plays is that everyone that is on the cast becomes like my family.”
Opening night, the theater department will be holding a spaghetti dinner before the show. The dinner will begin at 5 p.m., and tickets for the dinner and play admission will cost $20. After the dinner, the show will begin at 7 p.m.. General admission tickets, without the spaghetti dinner, will cost $10 for adults and $6 for students and seniors.
