Lone Peak Thespians take the stage
High School musical returns with Legally Blonde, The Musical
Lights, camera, action! Thirty-one student actors are vigorously rehearsing and an eight person crew is working diligently so the Lone Peak Thespians can bring Legally Blonde, The Musical to the WMPAC stage next Tuesday and Wednesday.
“This play is a perfect blend of fun and feisty," the Theatre Guide comments. Sounds like what the doctor ordered after a year of pandemic-living.
Notable in the performance will be Michael Romney, who has the longest tenure of all the cast. Romney has graced the stage in Big Sky since he was five-years-old. Experienced audience members have watched him grow up on stage and will now get the opportunity to watch him play the role of one of the leading men, Warner.
With a long history of successful high school musicals under their belts, organizers were pleased that the show could go on, “We decided we could do it. We felt things would open up. All the staff and many cast members are vaccinated,” said Barbara Rowley, Big Sky Broadway founding producer. The audience will be treated to a mix of masked and unmasked performers.
Adjustments have been made for Covid. Instead of a dress rehearsal and a performance, the cast will perform twice per day for two days. Each day will include a 4 p.m. matinee and a 7 p.m. show to allow for distancing in the theatre.
Tickets are $15 general admission and available at warrenmillerpac.com. The show is rated PG-13. Seating is limited and socially distanced.
