Mepham Skull and Bones Drama Staged "Legally Blonde"

Posted by EGrosskreuz

On April 7-9 at 7:00 PM, Mepham High School's Skull and Bones Drama Club presented its annual spring musical production. This April, the club staged Legally Blonde.

Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside-down, however, when her boyfriend dumps her so he can start getting serious about his life and attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle uses her charm to get into Harvard Law. At school, she struggles with peers, professors, and Warner Huntington III. With the help of Paulette and Emmett, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.

The cast was led by seniors Jessica Serviss (Elle Woods), Evan Spector (Emmett Forrest), Matt Gibbons (Warner Huntington III), and junior Cassidy Casimir (Paulette). Also joining the cast in memorable cameos were two of the cast members' dogs: Guinness (owned by junior Hailey Canonico) as Bruiser Woods and Jed (owned by sophomore Olivia Larocchia) as Rufus.

The production was directed by Mr. Edward Grosskreuz, with vocal music direction by Ms. Amanda Cantwell and instrumental music direction by Mr. Brian Neiderman. Complete with challenging and dazzling choreography by Ms. Whitney Stone, Legally Blonde took the Mepham stage by pink storm and was a fun and upbeat evening out for all who attended.
