Andover actresses will be performing in more than one production of the hit musical Legally Blonde this weekend.
While many local performers will be part of the Summer Theatre Ensemble’s local production (see story, page 1), one Andover teen will tackle three parts as part of the Boston Children’s Theatre’s production of the musical Legally Blonde running Aug. 2 to 5.
Kim Uggerholt, 18, will take the stage with one tiny Chihuahua, a Boxer named Rufus, and a cast of students ages 14 to 19 on Aug. 2, 4 and 5 at tThe Governor’s Academy in Byfield. She will play the roles of Gaelen, Mom, and a Delta Nu.
Uggerholt was previously seen in BCT’s World Premiere play “Reflections of a Rock Lobster,” and she appeared in the group’s “Spring Awakening,” “A Year With Frog and Toad,” and “The Wedding Singer.”
She will attend New York University as a freshman this fall.
Legally Blonde, the musical, is based on the popular film starring Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods. Elle is a pink-loving effervescent sorority girl who enrolls at Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend, and gains a lot more in return.
The Boston Children’s Theatre performances are Thursday, Aug. 2 at 8 p.m.; Saturday, Aug. 4 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 5 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $25 and $20 for adults and $15 and $10 for students. For tickets and information, visit bostonchildrenstheatre.org.
