The production takes place at the Hartlepool Town Hall Theatre, in Raby Road, from June 19-22, and will feature members of the Hartlepool Stage Society, Karen Liddle Dance School, plus a live band.

Sarah Charlton, of Hartlepool Stage Society, said: “Legally Blonde the Musical will take you from the social whirl of California campus life to Harvard’s halls of justice with our heroine Elle, her Chihuahua, Bruiser and the bull-dog-toting-hairdresser Paulette.”

Choreographer AJ O’Neill from London’s Pineapple Dance Studios led a workshop with the cast to choreograph the Legally Blonde Remix finale number for the show.

Cast members are looking forward to performing on stage.
