Franklin Footlight Theater will present Legally Blonde the Musical at the Franklin Opera House today through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.

“This dazzling show has a lot in common with its protagonist. You may think it’s a diamond-studded fluff piece, but beneath the pink and blonde, there’s true heart and passion behind this show, this cast, and this production as a whole,” said co-director John Masse in a statement.

Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner dumps her so he can attend Harvard School Law. Determined to get him back, Elle generously charms her way into the prestigious law school. While there, she struggles with peers, professors and her ex. With the support of some new friends, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.

Based on the movie, this is a fun, feel-good musical with a valuable message: be true to yourself.

Tickets are $14 and $16 and can be purchased online at frankinoperahouse.org or by phone at 934-1901.
