Sarah Bayliss nailed the part of Elle, bringing to life both the whimsical, pink-obsessed girl and serious, hard-working academic in perfect balance. Adam Mecklenburgh played Emmett, the only boy who seems to see Elle for the intelligence she has rather than her outer beauty. Played with the suitable level of awkwardness he did not fail to impress. Comedic with a phenominal voice and captivating facial expressions, Wheeler was a crowd favourite. Her accent was unwavering and realistic, her lines delivered with precise timing to maximise their comic effect. Act one was jam-packed with energy, sparkles and a whole lot of pink. The peppy songs matched the colourful stage and the seemingly boundless energy of the leads and chorus alike made the piece come alive, compensating for the occassional weakness seen in the performance of Matthews. Act two opened with a number even more energised than act one.

The talented cast from this amateur company brought the stage of the Pavilion Theatre to life with energy, colour and song in Legally Blonde The Musical. Perfect pink outfits and accessories added just the right amount of sweetness. Maybe she could have made her performance a little more ditsy, but otherwise an impressive performance. Adam Mecklenburgh was convincing as Emmett, caring and encouraging at the same time, helping turn the pink princess into a legal eagle. Some of the loudest applause was for Sally Wheeler, who played Paulette. Her powerful voice meant that the quirky hairdresser often stole the scene. A skipping sequence led by Heather Davis as Brooke was a highlight, with her six-strong team of skippers, who performed an amazing routine while singing. The whole cast — and there were a lot of them — really brought the wow factor to this show. There were a few missed notes, microphone problems and slow scene changes, but this was the first show.
