Webster University’s Conservatory of Theatre Arts presents Legally Blonde The Musical, April 24-28, at the Browning Mainstage Theatre in the Loretto-Hilton Center. Curtain times are 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and 2 p.m. only on Sunday.

Based on the novel by Amanda Brown and the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer motion picture, music and lyrics were penned by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin and the book by Heather Hach.

Perennially perky Elle Woods is a girl who loves to be pampered and shop for the latest all-pink outfits. But don’t let this seemingly ditsy fashionista fool you. This sorority sister is smarter than she seems and doesn’t take “no” for an answer.

So when her boyfriend dumps her for someone “more serious,” Elle sets out to win him back by putting down the credit card and hitting the books. Ready to revamp her image, Elle goes where no Delta Nu sorority girl has gone before: Harvard Law School!

The performance takes you from the sorority house to the halls of justice with Broadway’s blondest new student, that daredevil in high heels. Along the way, our heroine proves that being yourself and going after what you want never goes out of style.

Legally Blonde is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International. Admission is $12 for the general public and $6 for senior adults and students. For ticket reservations, call the Fine Arts Hotline at 314- 968-7128.
