‘Legally Blonde’ opens at the Little Theatre

Chloe Hanenkrat stars as Elle Woods in the Little Theatre of Tuscarawas County’s production of “Legally Blonde,” directed by Bart Herman.


The Little Theatre in New Philadelphia will open its production of “Legally Blonde” under the direction of Bart Herman on Friday, Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m.

First produced in 2007, “Legally Blonde” was nominated for seven Tony Awards including Best Actress in a Musical and Best New Musical. The musical was based on the 2001 movie starring Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods.

The musical follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles blonde stereotypes in pursuit of her dream of attending Harvard Law School and becoming an attorney.

“This show is action-packed and filled with memorable songs and dynamic dances,” Herman said. “It’s so much fun it should be illegal.”

Major roles in the show will be played by Chloe Hanenkrat as Elle Woods, Chester Boffo as Emmet Forrest, Missy Zickel as Paulette, Nathan Bond as Warner, Sarah Spies as Vivienne, Kaitlyn Dunlap as Brooke Wyndam, Don Irven as Professor Callahan, Sara Hohman as Margot, Rachel Ress as Serena, Josie Waugh as Pilar and Kettie Kneuss as Enid Hoops.

The large cast also includes several actors taking on multiple roles and many ensemble actors portraying the prisoners of the Boston Women’s Correctional Facility, UCLA student, Harvard Law students and courtroom spectators.

Herman also is choreographing the show and will be joined in the production by Amy Nutter, production assistant; Paul Dunlap, set design; Debbie DeVore, hair and makeup; Pam Douglas, props; Beth Blickensderfer, stage manager; Stephen Albury, lights; and Larry Sams, sound.

Tickets are on sale at $15 for adults and $10 for students and military personnel. Theater members receive $1 off of the ticket price on opening night.
