CHS’S annual musical, the pink and high-energy Legally Blonde, is now in production. Theater teacher Lauren Gill will be directing with senior Meghan Mosher student-directing for her second time.  

The show will be particularly interesting this year due to the addition of a matinee performance. In the past, the school’s musicals were performed on Friday and a Saturday evening show, with a Thursday matinee for middle schoolers from Catonsville and Arbutus middle schools.  

This year’s show will premiere on Friday, March 1 at 7 pm and will have two encore performances on Saturday, March 2 at 1 pm and 7 pm. 

Legally Blonde is a really funny and charming show about a girl chasing love… to Harvard? The main character Elle Woods will be played by senior Lis Wall. 

Last year’s Grease production was an outstanding success. The show was fully booked, with two full house shows. This happened with the two previous shows, Cinderella and Hairspray 

The growing popularity of the CHS drama department called for an adjustment to solve the problem of quick sellouts.  

“It’s a good way to get families in the door; it also helps get people in who don’t want to stay out late,” stated Ms. Gill 

New talent from senior Blessing Onokala will be showcased. 

“I actually wasn’t going to initially because there are no African American parts, which is the case with most CHS productions,” she explained, “but my theatre friends encouraged me to audition, so I decided to because this is my senior year, and I wanted to do something fun.” 

Time on set is a blast for many. 

“Being on set is really fun for the most part. This is my first theatre production; I’m constantly experiencing and learning new things. It can get a little dull when I’m waiting to rehearse my scene/ song, but I get to which other scenes develop which is always cool,” explained Onokala. 

For some, like student director Mosher, time on set is a rewarding hassle.  

“When people don’t know their lines or songs while we’re too far into the show, it can be a little frustrating.”
