ETC takes on 2000s musical/movie Legally Blonde this fall

According to Mr. Scheuer, Eureka High School’s theater teacher and musical director, Eureka’s 2024 Fall musical is an adaptation of the movie that came out in 2001, “Legally Blonde”, including all original music. 

“We decided to do this movie because it’s really fun and we were waiting to do something more contemporary since we haven’t really done anything very modern in a long time,” Scheuer said.

After seeing the excitement surrounding students about this particular title, Scheuer wanted to do a play that they really wanted to do. 

Avery Bengston, 11, stars as Elle Woods and is living her childhood dream. This role brings tons of excitement for Bengston as she is doing this with all her friends and has her favorite role.

“This is my dream role. I always wanted to be in ‘Legally Blonde’ and play Elle Woods,” Bengston said. 

Bengston is so ready for this year’s musical because she believes it will bring a bigger audience and attract many people to the school since it includes lots of fun modern elements and humor that the entire school could enjoy. 

“The songs are so so fun, the roles are so fun, everything is so fun and exciting and I am looking forward to rehearsing everything and seeing it all come together,” Bengston said.

Nico Grassi, 12, is an assistant choreographer and plays Mr. Callahan. This role is a character archetype that he usually doesn’t play. He has a villain character in this year’s musical and believes it will be interesting to step out of his comfort zone and take on a new challenge. 

“It will be really interesting playing a villain and I’m excited to see how it turns out and how I pull it off,” Grassi said. 

Grassi is not only cast in the show, but he is also a student assistant choreographer. He is looking forward to seeing the dancing come together. 

“I love all the music, dancing, and all the numbers and it’s so fun to be able to help put that all together and be a part of this experience,” Grassi said. 

DJ Dill, 12, participates in the ensemble in “Legally Blonde”. Dill gets to participate by portraying several side characters and changes into multiple different costumes during the show. Dill thinks this is exciting because he plays multiple people and multiple other points of view in the show. 

“There’s going to be a lot of funnier characters this year, and jokes that will have the whole audience laughing and actually connect with people rather than just an awkward dad laughing in the crowd,” Dill said. 

ETC’s fall musical this year is “Loud, big, fun and PINK”. According to the students and actors involved in the show, and because of their hard work, talent, and dedication to entertaining the school, it is definitely worth a watch.
