The Bohemians Lyric Opera Company bring their production of Legally Blonde to the stage this week, as the final part of the King’s amateur season.

And while it is a chance for this particularly talented bunch of 52 amateur performers to get their chops around a nicely modern piece of musical theatre, it seems that their leading actress is more keen than usual to get on the stage.

“I’ve been waiting to do this show my entire life,” Lydia Carrington who plays the lead role of Elle Woods told Æ, pointing out that she is part of the generation which grew up the two Legally Blonde films.

Elle Woods is the sorority girl who, devastated by her break-up with over-privileged, super-rich boyfriend Warner Huntington III, abandons sorority life for Harvard Law School in an attempt to prove herself to be more than a ditzy blonde.

Legally Blonde The Musical. King’s Theatre, 2 Leven Street EH3 9LQ. Wednesday 16 – Saturday 19 March. Daily: 7.30pm; Matinee, Sat 19: 2.30pm.
