Ohmigod, You Guys!

It's Legally Blonde the musical!
Thacher's very own version of—very blonde, very legal—Elle Woods graced the stage of the Milligan Center for the Performing Arts last weekend and captivated minds and hearts. The audience—most of whom were already familiar with the story from Legally Blonde the movie—relived the funny and empowering story of the ditzy sorority girl turned Harvard law student.

Behind the success of this production are the long hours and hard work put in by Rod Jacobsen (director), Gregory Haggard (music director), Gallia Vickery (choreographer), and Cal Jensen CdeP 2006 (technical director). These dedicated faculty members started with casting way back at the end of the fall term and worked diligently all winter to bring together over fifty students in the making of this production. The countless hours of rehearsal led to two great nights of performance, in which both cast and crew should take great pride.
