The State Theatre was a full house Saturday night for the final performance of “Legally Blonde, the Musical.”
The show opened with Rick Gilmore, president of State College Community Theatre, addressing the audience. “Community Theater is really special,” he said. “It’s unique,” he added.
The show was met with cheers and applause after each musical number. On many occasions, the theater was filled with laughter.
“Legally Blonde, the Musical” followed the general storyline of the popular 2001 film. Many characters in the film were also cast in the musical performance, including both dogs, Bruiser and Rufus.
There were some additions in the show that were not in the original film production such as Paulette, the hairdresser’s obsession with Irish men and a scene involving a baton twirler.
The cast of “Legally Blonde, the Musical” ended its performance with a final shout of “oh my God” and a fist pump before curtain call.
The audience applauded throughout curtain call which ended with the cast singing a final song.
The full ensemble finished with the line, “legally blonde, oh yeah,” leaving the theater full of cheers and whistles.
