This spring, PHS Theatre goes Legally Blonde

PEWAUKEE, WI, January 14, 2017 – This spring, the Pewaukee High School Theatre Department will bring a silver screen favorite to the stage with Legally Blonde, The Musical. Join the loveable Elle Woods as she finds the strength within herself (and a collection of new and old friends) to achieve more than she ever thought possible. Legally Blonde will run Thursday, February 16 at 7:00 p.m.; Friday, February 17 at 7:00 p.m.; and Saturday, February 18 at 7:00 p.m. This will be the seventh full-length production presented by the high school in the Pewaukee District Auditorium.

The story follows a plot recognizable to the 2001 romantic comedy of Elle Woods (Madison Moroder, senior), a “blonde” but loveable sorority girl who is devastated by the breakup from her college sweetheart, Warner Huntington III (Cross Mendoza, junior). She packs her bags and sets her sights on Harvard, hoping to win him back by showing she, too can succeed in law school, only to find that he has moved on to Vivienne Kensington (Reynna Nelson, senior). Here, she meets Emmett Forrest (Anthony Desidero, sophomore), and with his encouragement and the support of her new friend Paulette Buonfuonte (Emilee Toureene, senior), and her old friends, Delta Nu sorority sisters Margot (Riah VandeZande, senior), Serena (Megan Loth, sophomore), and Pilar (Demi Derringer, freshman), she attempts to stand up to Warner, Vivienne, and Professor Callahan (Alex Steinhaus, junior) and prove she is more than just a pretty blonde.

The theatre department is also excited to feature use of the new track system it installed in December 2016, which now allows for productions to incorporate the use of drops into the set design.

Tickets to Pewaukee High School’s production of Legally Blonde  will be available for sale on the Drama Club Web site ( or at the door one hour prior to each performance. Tickets are also available for sale at the Pewaukee High School box office from 11:20 - 1:15 the week of the show.
