The Baldwin is going blonde

See also

Legally Blonde - The Musical is set to dazzle theater-goers at the Baldwin Theatre in Royal Oak. Opening night is Friday, September 7th and it will run through September 30th.

Get ready for a fun and sparkling production brought to you by the Stagecrafters. The production is based on the novel Legally Blonde by Amanda Brown and the 2001 film of the same name.

The musical tells the story of Elle Woods (Kelly Robinson of Royal Oak) and her journey of realizing that there’s so much more to her than being blonde. (Well duh).

For Kelly Robinson, playing Elle has been a roller coaster of a ride. “It's definitely a marathon throughout,” she says. “I never leave the stage for more than a few seconds and when I do, I am either doing a costume change, or trying to breathe and drink water.”

To get into the role of Elle, Robinson even dyed her hair blonde as opposed to wearing a wig. Now that's dedication!

Advance tickets for performances are $18 on Thursdays, $20 on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Student and Senior discounts are available for specific performances. Tickets may be purchased online at www.stagecrafters.org or by phone at 248-541-6430 using Visa or MasterCard. All seats are reserved.
