OBHS' "Legally Blonde" Dazzles Audiences
The energy was electric in Oyster Bay High School auditorium, March 1-3, as students danced and sang their way through three dazzling performances of Legally Blonde, the Musical.
“Everyone put their all into this show,” said K-12 Fine and Performing Arts Supervisor Mr. Anthony Femino, producer of the show. “I congratulate our cast, crew and orchestra, as well as our teachers who led the show with lots of positive energy and compassion, making it a rousing success.”
Directed by Ms. Teriann Chiappardi and Assistant Director Brittany Ford, the show took the audience through a pink cyclone as star Delta Nu sorority sister Elle Woods, played by Kayleigh M. Crawford, takes Harvard University by storm. In pursuit of a marriage proposal from Warner Huntington III, played by Jayce Cody, she charms her way into the Ivy League only to be faced with ridicule by her peers. But with some sass and a little help from her friends and professors, she realizes her true potential and sets out to prove herself in the world.
Also behind the show’s success were Assistant Producer and Stage Crew Director Ms. Maria Randazzo, Music Director Ms. Kylie Mullins, Conductor Ms. Brenda Murphy and Sound/Lighting Designer Mr. Glen Davis.
