This January, the Yew Chung International School of Beijing will wow audiences with a performance of the critically acclaimed show: “Legally Blonde: The Musical.” Featuring students from across our Secondary School, this fun and upbeat production will have you clapping and singing along!
The story is based on the novel Legally Blonde by Amanda Brown and the 2001 film of the same name. It tells the story of Elle Woods, a sorority girl who enrolls at Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend Warner. She discovers how her knowledge of the law can help others, and successfully defends exercise queen Brooke Wyndham in a murder trial. Throughout the show, no one has faith in Elle Woods, but she manages to surprise them when she defies expectations while staying true to herself. (credit Wikipedia).
The show is free for all attendees and will take place in the YCIS Beijing Auditorium.
Three performances will be available to the wider community:
Thursday, January 12, 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, January 14, 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
