Going Blonde Benefits THON

Come watch Elle Woods tackle Harvard Law School one musical number at a time in The State College Community Theatre’s production of Legally Blonde The Musical.

Elle Woods had the perfect life at Delta Nu in sunny California until her boyfriend, Warner, broke up with her to get serious at law school. After gaining admittance to Harvard Law, Elle launches her plan to get her ex back. Along the way she helps Paulette talk to the man of her dreams, defends Brooke Wyndam in a murder trial, and meets Emmett Forrest, her future boyfriend.

You may know the familiar story, but this production stands out from the rest because the performance benefits THON.

“A portion of the ticket proceeds are being donated to the upcoming Penn State IFC/Penhellenic Dance Marathon, affectionately known as THON, which raises funds and awareness for the fight against pediatric cancer”, according to The State College Community Theatre’s website.

The company will be performing February 8th at 8 p.m. and February 9th at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Tickets are selling from $16 to $20, available online.
