It follows the story of Elle Woods, a Delta Nu sorority girl as she journeys to Harvard Law School to win back her man. 

The cast of the society has been working hard since the successful completion of their pantomime Alice in Wonderland earlier this year.

Julia Clarke, chairman of Clacton Musical Theatre Society, said: “We are extremely excited that the Legally Blonde performance is just around the corner.

"We have welcomed talented new members from outside Clacton, adding to our ever-growing family of enthusiastic volunteers.

"As we gear up for our 100th birthday in 2029, the energy and talent in our group are truly inspiring. Come and join us for a fun-filled night of musical magic.”

With a lively score featuring songs such as Omigod You Guys and So Much Better the cast will have audiences cheering on Elle every step of the way.
