Legally Blonde at Crown

Perth actress Elaina O`Connor was born to play Elle Woods. “I feel like my personality is very similar to Her, I`m very there, bubbly and happy all the time, I say it`s my dream role because she looks like me.” One wonders if you could find a greater love of dogs than Western Australians! Or maybe it was the young female audience that let out a collective sigh when the two canine artists were seen on stage. Admittedly, Elle`s (Bentley) fur baby and big-eyed French bulldog cross pug Rufus (Phoebe) were a damn cute addition. In addition to O`Connor, Lloyd Hopkins is on stage as Woods` lover, Emmett Forrest. Perth, who has toured the world in the performance and events industry, is incredibly fortunate to be the home of Danielle Papa, whose avant-garde choreography has span all genres. The strength and technical skill of the dance ensemble was impeccable and the creative team made good use of the stage. The staging sets were simple but supported the story well, transporting the audience through time and space with four giant vertical LED screens. So get ready to bend over and grab those tickets! The production will run at Crown Theatres for just a week and a half, April 16-25. Legal Blonde The Musical has shown that the future of performance in Western Australia is bright as local theatre companies continue to prove they have far more potential than it seems.

The Crown Theatre Perth stage will turn into a fabulous sea of pink energy when this entertaining production of Legally Blonde, presented by Hama Productions, arrives in Perth this April. Refresh your legalese and put on your best pink, because Legal Blonde the Musical will take the crown in April! Thanks to Hama Productions and Lynne Burford Publicity, we have three double passes to win for the matinee premiere of the show on Friday, April 16 at 1pm. If you want to be one of the first fashionable in Perth to see this fabulous production, enter your details below. Legal Blonde is full of high-quality rising stars, a large number of strong dancers, singers and performers who fill the stage with relentless dynamism. Annie Aitken delivered an outstanding performance as Paulette Bonafonte, a New England beautician who clings to a hilarious fantasy of meeting an Irish lover one day. Aitken dominated the stage at every performance with his killer vocal belt and brilliant comic timing. His Irish dream turns out to be Kyle, “the UPS guy”, played by Vincent Hooper, who clearly had a ball that interfered with the role, which was reciprocated by a grateful audience. HAMA Productions brings the hit film Chick, which has become a musical, right here in Perth. Legal Blonde the Musical focuses on “It Girl,” Elle Woods, who emerges from a breakup with her Warner boyfriend in the halls of Harvard Law School to win him back. The orchestra pit was filled with world-class musicians under the direction of Marty Pervan as conductor. Jake Goodsell, the façade operator, was also particularly noteworthy.

Opening nights can sometimes be fraught with technical pitfalls, but there were very few lost clues and the band sounded fantastic, suggesting that more gigs will only sound better! “I wouldn`t dare compare myself to Reese, but I hope to be like her one day,” O`Connor told The West Australian. The 21-year-old could be mistaken for Reese Witherspoon`s daughter and is the next generation to bring to life the character that made Witherspoon famous. Action-packed and exploding with unforgettable songs and dynamic dances, Legally Blonde is so much fun it should be illegal! This production is filled with laughter and wellness songs that will make you say “OMIGOD!” Legally Blonde has won numerous awards, including Best New Musical at the 2011 Olivier Awards and received 7 nominations at the 2007 Tony Awards. The production also includes songs written by Laurence O`Keefe and Nell Benjamin with the book by Heather Hatch. In addition, the musical will feature local talent from Perth, with Elaina O`Connor in the charming role of Elle and Lloyd Hopkins, who will star alongside her as Emmett Forrest. Based on the popular film of the same name, this life-affirming musical follows the transformation of fashion and style Elle Woods after her life was turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner Huntington III left her before leaving California to attend the prestigious Harvard Law School. Determined to bring him back, she followed Warner to Massachusetts and ingeniously went to Harvard. But from that point on, things don`t go quite as planned. “I`d love to go to London long term and try it for West End shows.” The pretty honeycombed face Lloyd Hopkins (Emmett Forrest) played the adorable and reserved hero who gets the girl. This solid cast includes two notable actresses, Bella McSporran (Serena) and Charlotte Louise (Vivienne).

At just 19 years old, McSporran has versatility, confidence and maturity beyond his age. Louise – chosen to play the role of Elle`s main antagonist (and her understudy!) – effortlessly belted a ridiculously wide range. It can be hard to see past layers of pink glitter, high-pitched voices, and stereotypes, but this performance is based on hard work. HAMA Productions` creative directors and producers, Marina Del Basso and Hamish McSporran, assembled a high-quality production team and cast to ensure a satisfying audience experience. The 21-year-old discovered her love for musical theater while studying theater in high school and realized the genre could combine her love of singing with her natural talent for theater. Legal Blonde The Musical exploded on stage at the Crown Theatre last week with all the pink glow you`d expect from this pop culture favorite.
