OBHS Presents Legally Blonde, the Musical
Continued from cover
“Often in Greek mythology, when someone is in need of support or guidance, a Greek Chorus appears to teach a lesson,” said Director/Choreographer Ms. Teriann Chiappardi. “These are fierce, brave, intelligent women who hear a call, swoop in, and teach a valuable lesson at the precise moment it is needed. Some of these lessons are harder to learn than others. As Elle Woods navigates her way through an epic quest of self-discovery, she has her goddesses, her Delta Nu sisters, who appear as a vision to keep her sane, positive, and on the right path. On her way to the top, instead of being defeated, she fights her own mythical beast to become a hero.”
