Penn State Centre Stage To Perform ‘Legally Blonde’

Penn State Centre Stage will perform Legally Blonde: The Musical beginning this week at the Playhouse Theatre.

Previews are Tuesday and Thursday before opening night on Friday, October 5. The show runs through October 11. Shows will begin at 7:30 p.m. each night with the exception of Saturday’s matinee. For the general public, tickets cost $25 during the show’s regular run and $20 for the previews and the matinee. Students can purchase tickets for $12.50 with a valid PSU ID.
