Year 12 pupil Izzy Foskett will perform the lead role of Elle Wood in Te Kura o Tititea Mount Aspiring College’s (Mac) production of Legally Blonde JR, which opens  next Thursday at the Lake Wānaka Centre.

Izzy said the production would showcase Mac’s many talented, hardworking pupils, who had put in lots of time and effort to make the show come together.

"I can’t wait to perform the show for an audience.

"I am a little nervous, but being part of the musical has really helped me to grow my confidence on stage, and I’m so excited to see all the hard work of everyone involved pay off on opening night," Izzy said.

"The show is very upbeat and high energy, so the songs are really fun to perform.

Izzy said she had really enjoyed learning all the songs and dances for the musical.

"The biggest highlight for me has been meeting and making friends with so many other people who love musical theatre.

"The whole cast and crew are amazing ... so you definitely don’t want to miss the show!"

The musical is a fun, comedic show that follows Elle Wood’s journey from Malibu party girl to "serious" Harvard law graduate while not compromising who she is and what she stands for.

The musical, one of many co-curricular learning experiences offered at Mac, brings together 87 ākonga (pupils) from across the school.

Mac will present Legally Blonde JR from Thursday, May 16 to Saturday, May 18 at the Lake Wānaka Centre.
