In the time-honored tradition of school musicals, this year's musical for Eisenhower High School is 'Legally Blonde: The Musical.'

Based on the hit movie, it follows Elle, who appears to be a happy-go-lucky blonde in love, but has brains to back it up. When she finds out her boyfriend gets into law school, she follows him there, unbeknownst to him, only to find out he has a new love interest. As a way of getting back at him, she strives to be more successful than him while following along with a case featuring one of her fitness idols on the judge's bench.

I'm a mid-30s-year-old dude and, I have to admit, I really like both the movie and the musical. It should be great as the Ike Players do such a great job every year.

Anyone is welcome to attend these performances. Showtimes are set for March 12, 13, 14, 19, 20 and 21 at 7 p.m. with special 2 p.m. matinees on March 14 and 21.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students and can be purchased in advance at the Eisenhower ASB office at 44th Avenue and Tieton Drive.

Call 573-2616 for details.
