The award winning Young Venture Players are thrilled to bring Legally Blonde The Musical to the Dolman stage. It’s the story of college sweetheart and homecoming queen Elle Woods, who doesn’t take no for an answer.

Determined to get him back, Elle puts down her credit card, hits the books and uses her charm to get into the prestigious school where she struggles with peers, professors, and Warner. With the help of Paulette and Emmett, Elle quickly realises her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world whilst tackling stereotypes, snobbery and scandal in pursuit of her dreams.
