  • New Candlelight Theatre presents the fun, high energy musical, "Legally Blonde" on April 5.
    The story tells of Elle Woods, a recently dumped, perky blonde girl who won't take "no" for an answer. Elle follows her ex-boyfriend all the way to Harvard Law School, determined to prove she is more than just a ditsy fashionista. Along the way, she finds that being yourself never goes out of style.
    Leading the cast and making her NCT debut is Taylor Elise Rector as Elle Woods. A graduate of the University of Florida, Rector is now pursuing a career in musical theater in New York City. The remaining cast of 25 includes: Emily Kleimo as Margo, Lauren Parsons as Serena, Maria Konstantinidis as Pilar, Caleb Whipple as Emmett, Jennie Knackstedt as Paulette, Fernando Gonzalez as Callahan, Will Connell as Warner, Stephanie Woodring as Vivienne, Kelly Boeckle as Brooke, Janine Merolla as Enid, Jonathan Elliott Coursey as Kyle and thirteen ensemble members.
    The production staff includes director and choreographer Dann Dunn, musical director Trevor Pierce, set designer Jeff Reim, lighting designer Brian Froonjian and costume designer Timothy Lamont Cannon.
    One of the few remaining dinner theaters on the East Coast, NCT has been thrilling audiences for over 40 years. "Legally Blonde" will show Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons beginning April 5 and will run through May 19. A Thursday evening performance is available on May 9th. All tickets include dinner and show and are $56 for adults, $33 for children between 4 and 12. Under 4 not permitted.
    Special Pricing: Friday evenings enjoy a special wine and cheese or wine and dessert price of $37 as a non-dinner option. Group rates are also available. Call or visit online at NCTstage.org for more details.
