Theatre patrons interested in seeing a group of young thespians show that you don’t have to have a lot of experience to put on an impressive production can head to Indian Hills tonight through Saturday.

The middle school’s 2015 musical, Legally Blonde, opens tonight at 7 p.m. Additional showings will be Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m.

Director Cheryl Hodges-Thrutchley said she chose the show about a seemingly intellectually challenge blonde who works her way through Harvard Law School in part because of the large cast it calls for.

“I try to pick shows that have numerous parts, to showcase as many students as possible,” she said. “For many of our students in the cast, it is their first opportunity to perform in a musical production.”

This year’s performance features a record 125 cast members — and two dogs.
