The entire cast and crew of Legally Blonde the Musical arrived at the Gibson Southern early this morning, checking in at four-thirty to warm up for their feature on 14 WFIE News Sunrise. The cast began by doing a vocal warm-up and then a physical warm-up to prepare for the performance. The crew, who was so dedicated as to come in at the same time as the cast, but not be seen on camera, helped by controlling the curtains, lights, sound, props, and set pieces. Despite the early hour of the show, the students all had a lot of energy and were ready to show the Tri-State what they have been working on for the past two and a half months.
Three major numbers from the musical Legally Blonde were included in the clips shown on the news. One of the songs was So Much Better, in which Elle Woods, portrayed by Madison Dillon, junior, found that she had been awarded an internship along with six other Harvard students. Another was What You Want: Part 2, where Elle is encouraged by Margot, Serena, Pilar, and Kate, portrayed by Mariah Paiz, junior, Madeline Cox, freshman, Lauren Fuhs and Natalie Bengert, juniors, as well as many other cast members on her goal to be accepted to Harvard Law School. The other number that was performed was Whipped Into Shape which takes place in the jail where Brooke Wyndham, portrayed by Jasmyne Milheiser, junior, is showing the female inmates to use her “Cardio Whip 5000” to get “whipped into shape.”
