    The show, adapted from the eponymous 2001 movie starring Reese Witherspoon, tells the story of Elle Woods (played by junior Samantha Spicker), a UCLA senior ready to marry the man of her dreams Warner (Ben Garcia) who is off to Harvard Law School. Before he leaves, he has some shocking news for Elle that sends her into a tailspin. The result is a hilarious yet timely tale of Elle's journey to self discovery. Along the way, she meets people who will support her development into an independent woman and a lawyer, including Pauline (Madison Schoening) and Emmett (David Cortez), and others like Professor Callahan (John Susoeff) and Vivienne Kensington (Hailey Ung)--whom she'll have to overcome as they stand in her way.
