Based on the movie starring Reese Witherspoon, Legally Blonde weaves the bubbly tale of Elle Woods, a sorority president who follows her ex-boyfriend to Harvard Law to rekindle their romance. The award-winning musical follows Elle's defeats and triumphs as she struggles to succeed at law, discover self-respect outside a relationship, and finally find new love. Clever, fast-paced lyrics mix with upbeat tunes in songs such as "Omigod You Guys" and "Gay or European," supported by rug-cutting numbers that enliven the show and disappoint kids who thought dance was a rebellion against their lawyer parents. The show is presented by Atlantic Arts Academy, whose instructors teach dance, drama, and music to students of all ages and skill levels. When enrolled in the academy, pupils gain a deeper appreciation for each of these mediums through classes that are disciplined yet fun and celebratory.
Named in honor of golf-course designer Bruce Borland, who died in a plane accident in 1999, the Borland Center swings open its doors to the community by focusing on family values. Concerts, plays, and recitals are just a few of the events that coax guests into the venue's 10,000 square feet of space, which harbors a 500-seat theater and a multipurpose ballroom that doubles as an indoor practice field for local cribbage teams on rainy days.
