WINNER OF 2011 OLIVIER AWARD FOR BEST NEW MUSICAL

Legally Blonde The Musical won Best New Musical in theWhatsonstage.com Awards 2011 and was nominated for 5 Olivier Awards, going on to win Best New Musical, Best New Actress for Sheridan Smith and Best Supporting Role in a Musical for co-star Jill Halfpenny.
Now our fabulous heroine Elle Woods is headed for Glasgow and set to take the city by storm before wowing the rest of the UK!
Based on the hit movie starring Reese Witherspoon, this critically acclaimed new musical is created by a top-of-their-class creative team, led by Tony Award-winning director and Olivier Award-nominated choreographer Jerry Mitchell (Hairspray).
College sweetheart and homecoming queen Elle Woods doesn't take no for an answer. So when her boyfriend, Warner, dumps her for someone serious, Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books, and heads for Harvard Law School accompanied by her loveable Chihuahua, Bruiser.
This all singing, all dancing, feel-good musical comedy will be the must-see theatrical event in Glasgow this autumn and the most fashionable ticket in town.
Howard Panter, joint Chief Executive of Ambassador Theatre Group said:
"Ambassador Theatre Group's co-production of Legally Blonde The Musical is enjoying great success on the West End and we have now decided to take it out on its first ever UK tour so regional audiences who can't make it to London can experience this fantastic show. The Theatre Royal is one of ATG's largest regional houses and this grand venue will make a fitting home for the premiere of a tour which is set to replicate the success of the West End run. I am sure Glaswegians will take Elle Woods to their hearts and give her the warm welcome that the city is so famous for."
James Haworth, General Manager at the Theatre Royal said:
"I am extremely proud that the Theatre Royal has been chosen to host the Scottish premiere of the tour of Legally Blonde The Musical. The theatre can't wait to welcome the show to the city and kick off the Scottish leg of the tour in spectacular style – it will be a highlight of Glasgow's cultural offering this autumn and one of the hottest tickets in 2011."
The verdict? This much fun shouldn't be legal!
