North Shore Music Theatre
Tickled Pink With "Legally Blonde"
November 1 - 13

North Shore Music Theatre in Beverly will present "Legally Blonde: The Musical" for a limited two-week engagement, November 1 – 13.

Based on the hit movie of the same name, "Legally Blonde" tells of Elle Woods, the college sweetheart and homecoming queen who won't take no for an answer. When her boyfriend Warner dumps her for someone more "serious," Elle puts down the credit cards, hits the books and heads for Harvard Law School. Along the way, she proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style. This high-energy pop musical's fun and catchy score features music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin with a book by Heather Hach.

"Legally Blonde: The Musical" will star Kelly Felthous as Elle Woods. Kelly was last seen at NSMT starring in "Singin’ in the Rain" in 2006. Kelly just returned from China where she performed at the Macau International Music Festival in "Fame." She also recently originated the role of Eva in the world premiere of "Bring It On." Her national tour and off-Broadway credits include "Grease," and "Seussical."

The cast also features Gaelen Gilliland , Barrett Hall, Paul Jackel, Will Ray, Kate Loprest, Taryn Darr, Tiffany Engen, Allysa Shorte, Sara Andreas and Trish LaRose.

The ensemble includes Meredith Akins, Ian Campayno, Andrea Collier, Lani Corson, Vanessa Dunleavy, Brooke Engen, Timothy Hughes, Chris Matesevac, Joe Moeller, Kevin Pariseau and Frankie Paparone.

"Legally Blonde: The Musical" will be directed and choreographed by Nick Kenkel, whose recent credits include associate directing and co-choreographing "Peepshow" in Las Vegas, as well as assistant choreographing Broadway’s "Legally Blonde" and "Catch Me If You Can."

Kenkel has been seen performing on Broadway in "Catch Me If You Can," "Legally Blonde" and "The Wedding Singer," in Las Vegas in "Peepshow," and at NSMT in "Sweet Charity," "Chicago" and last season’s production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." Earlier this year, Nick was named one of the “25 To Watch in 2011” by Dance Magazine and will be seen later this season on Broadway in the revival of "Evita" starring Ricky Martin.
