Jonathan Stahl will direct and choreograph Legally Blonde, which has music and lyrics by both Laurence O'Keefe (Bat Boy: The Musical; Cam Jansen and the Curse of the Emerald Elephant; Sarah, Plain and Tall) and Nell Benjamin (Cam Jansen; Sarah, Plain and Tall; The Mice) and a book by Heather Hach (the film "Freaky Friday").

Legally Blonde will run through April 29. It has musical direction by John Daniels.

In addition to Felthous (Bring It On, Grease, Seussical) as Elle Woods, the cast will include Christopher DeProphetis as Emmett, Aloysius Gigl as Professor Callahan, Jacquelyn Piro Donovan as Paulette, Timothy Hughes as Kyle, Lauren Blackman as Vivienne, Maria Logan as Brooke, Amber Coartney as Enid, Michela Imbesi as Serena, Brooke Morrison as Margot, Gillian Munsayac as Pilar, Leisa Mather as Elle's Mother and Benjamin Dean Horine as Elle's Father.

The ensemble includes Amanda Pulcini, Shannon Lea Smith, Eric Byrd, Aubrey Sinn, Jason Slattery, Ron Tal, with pooches Roxie (as Bruiser) and Paul Newman (as Rufus) appearing courtesy of their handler, Karen Wells, and animal trainer Bill Berloni.

Legally Blonde has set design by John Farrell, costume design by Matthew Hemesath, lighting design by Andrew Gmoser and sound design by Jonathan Hatton. Here's how WBT bills the pop musical: "When Sorority girl, Elle Woods is dumped by her boyfriend, Warner Huntington III, she decides to get 'serious' to win her boyfriend back. He is off to college to study law and wants a girlfriend who will be able to support him in his chosen career. Elle, an underestimated blonde who doesn't take 'no' for an answer, puts down the credit cards, hits the books, and with doggie Bruiser in tow, she sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law. She discovers the true power behind being legally blonde, and proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style."
