Welcome back! Need some more advice on where you’d rather be during these icky hot summer weeks? I gotcha covered!
Opening this weekend!
Vandalia Youth Theatre
The Skinny: I adore Vandalia Youth Theatre. It’s a fantastic group of incredibly talented young people, lead by an incredibly talented group of adults. If you’ve never seen a VYT show, here is your chance. Legally Blonde is based on the 2001 movie of the same name and follows Elle Woods, a perky blonde who can handle anything. So when her boyfriend, Warner, dumps her she decides to follow him to Harvard Law School and win him back. With some help from new-found friends Paulette, Emmett and her chihuahua Bruiser, she learns that it’s so much better to be smart.
The Dates: Friday and Saturday the 20th, 21st, 27th and 28th at 8 pm and Sunday the 29th at 3pm at Northridge High School.
