The lively story of California sorority girl turned Harvard Law student Elle Woods is now set to music. You may remember Elle played by a bubbly Reece Witherspoon in the 2001 blockbuster hit.

Colorado Mesa University’s “Legally Blonde the Musical” will be performed at Robinson Theatre (in Grand Junction’s Moss Performance Arts Center) Feb. 27 through March 8. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, and $6 for students. On Feb. 27 through March 1, and March 5-8, performances start at 7:30 p.m. On March 2 and 8, the show kicks off at 2 p.m.

“The story is the same, but it’s a musical,” publicity manager Laura Bradley said. “It’s pretty much nonstop music, high energy and dancing.”

The musical’s plot is based on a novel by Amanda Brown and the 2001 feature film.

“California sorority girl Elle Woods determinedly follows her ex-boyfriend to Harvard University in a blaze of pink to win him back with her charms,” a news release said. “Along the way she discovers her own intelligence and talents with the help of the apparitions of her Delta Nu sisters, who act as a Greek chorus, her new friends, and of course, her chihuahua Bruiser.”

According to Bradley, the cast totals 26 (24 students, two teachers) and two dogs, with Bailey the chihuahua as Bruiser, CMU faculty member Tim Pinnow as Callahan, plus CMU theatre majors Kortni Stillwagon, Ethan Knowles, Rochelle Kwasniewski and Colton Pratt.
