Tickets are $10.00 and $5.00 for children up through 8th grade. The music and lyrics were composed by Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin and the book was written by Heather Hach.

It tells the story of Elle Woods, a sorority girl who enrolls at Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend Warner. She discovers how her knowledge of the law can help others, and successfully defends exercise queen Brooke Wyndham in a murder trial. Legally Blonde premiered in pre-Broadway tryouts in San Francisco, California. In April 2007 the show moved to Broadway. It received seven Tony nominations and ten Drama Desk nominations. The West End production was nominated for five Laurence Olivier Awards and won three, including the Best New Musical 2011 award. Shawnee Mission North will be the first S.M.
