Rosny students prepare to paint Clarence pink

ROSNY College’s performing arts students will be turning all shades of pink this month when they present their 18th annual musical, ‘Legally Blonde the Musical’.

From 18-28 May, Harvard’s famous blonde lawyer-in-training, Elle Woods, will take to the stage in the award-winning and upbeat musical, which features a range of memorable songs and dynamic dances.

The musical will follow the story of college sweetheart Elle Woods who attends Harvard Law School in an attempt to win back her ex-boyfriend, Warner.

This year, more than 70 Rosny students will learn how the musical industry works as they make up an all-student cast, crew, costume team and the majority of the band.

The students will also be mentored by some of Hobart’s theatrical elite, including Errol Award nominated director Darren Sangwell, musical director Suze Ellis, choreographer Jacquie Coad, Errol Award nominee and costume director Nicole Ottery and Errol Award winning designer Bill Dowd.

Mr Sangwell said each year Rosny’s productions got bigger, involved more students and provided increased learning opportunities.

“Legally Blonde will be another student-driven performance where they will learn all areas of the musical theatre industry,” he said.

“This will include stagecraft, singing, dancing, acting, backstage, lighting, sound design and operation, as well as costume design, hair, makeup and operating front of house.

“We are so lucky to have the facilities and tutors on campus to provide these opportunities which are so valuable to our students and are stepping stones for many of them who will go on to further work and study in this incredible industry.”

Rosny College will present Legally Blonde the Musical in its Dwight Brown Auditorium for six evening performances starting at 7.30am on 19, 20, 21, 26, 27 and 28 May.
