Legally Blonde the Musical set to return to Sunderland Empire

The new tour of Legally Blonde The Musical is set to hit Sunderland Empire for one week only from Monday 16 – Saturday 21 April 2018.

The smash hit Broadway and West End Musical, tells the story of Delta Nu Sorority Sister Elle Woods who loves to be pampered and is very passionate about pink. But when Elle is dumped by her boyfriend Warner Huntingdon III for a more serious girlfriend she puts down the credit cards and picks up the books!

Packing up her trusty pooch, Bruiser, she bags herself a place at the prestigious Harvard Law School to try and win Warner back. This all singing, all dancing romantic comedy is about knowing who you are and with the support of her new friends she learns that you can be both smart and fashionable.

Based on the best loved movie, this new tour of Legally Blonde The Musical will feature Rita Simons as Paulette with further casting to be announced. Rita is best known for playing Roxy Mitchell in BBC's Eastenders and is one of Britain’s best loved TV actresses.
