The Youth Actors Academy of Lincoln (YAAL) is proud to announce that our young stars are ready to delight you in Legally Blonde Jr. Performances will take place March 1-3, 2019 at the YAAL Theater located at 1233 Libra Drive, Suite 2, Lincoln, NE 68512.
Based on the award-winning Broadway musical and the smash hit motion picture, Legally Blonde Jr. is a fabulously fun journey of self-empowerment and expanding horizons. The show’s instantly recognizable songs are filled with humor, wit and sass – leaving cast members and audiences alike seeing pink!
Legally Blonde Jr. follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. When Elle’s boyfriend, Warner, dumps her and heads to Harvard, claiming she’s not “serious” enough, Elle takes matters into her own hands, crafting a showy song-and-dance personal essay and charming her way into law school. Befriending classmate, Emmett, and spunky hairdresser, Paulette, along the way, Elle finds that books and looks aren’t mutually exclusive. As Elle begins outsmarting her peers, she realizes that law may be her natural calling after all.
This production is performed by our talented youth ages 8-15. The show is approximately 90 minutes with an intermission.
Show dates and times are as follows: Friday, March 1st at 7pm; Saturday, March 2nd at 2pm and 7pm; and Sunday, March 3rd at 2pm and 6pm. Advance tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for youth under 18. Preferred seating is $20. Tickets may be purchased at www.yaal.org. Tickets will also be available at the door for $10, subject to availability. All seats are general admission.
