St. Joseph’s check out Legally Blonde The Musical

O.M.G. you guys!!! TY students, Borrisoleigh at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre attending Legally Blonde The Musical

As part of the TY programme in St. Joseph's College Borrisoleigh, students attend a performance of a West end musical in the Bord Gais Energy Theatre in Dublin. This gives students the opportunity to experience a world class, professional show in a magnificent venue. This year our trip was to “Legally Blonde The Musical”. Most of our students hadn’t been to this theatre before and were impressed by the sheer scale of the building, the hugely impressive staging, live orchestra, highly technical sound production and lighting, not to mention the  all singing, all dancing cast.

Legally Blonde The Musical turned out to be a fun filled, feel good treat for the students. College sweetheart and homecoming queen Elle Woods doesn’t take no for an answer. When her boyfriend dumps her for someone more serious, Elle puts down her credit card, hits the books and heads for Harvard Law School. Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style. Perhaps a lesson or two is in there for some of our students amidst all the frivolous fun!!

Based on the Reese Witherspoon film, Legally Blonde The Musical earned seven Tony nominations and ten Drama Desk Award nominations during its Broadway run. In the U.K. it was nominated for five Laurence Olivier Awards including Best New Musical, and was nominated for eight Whatsonstage Awards winning four including Best Musical.

It certainly got our vote for a fun day out!
