Kaitlin Reynell is Elle Woods and adorable rescue dogs Jake and Epic are Bruiser and Rufus, respectively, in the upcoming show. The MJCCA’s adaptation is based on the Broadway version of the 2001 film starring Reese Witherspoon.

“‘Legally Blonde’ doesn’t play it straight,” Brian Kimmel, Company J’s producing artistic director, said. “It follows the campy, tongue-in-cheek paradigm of movies-turned-musical productions like ‘Hairspray,’ and I think the audience will really enjoy the feel-good simplicity of the show.”

In line with this positive vibe, part of the proceeds from this production will be donated to Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, the 501(c)3 that has saved more than 4,000 animals – including stars Jake and Epic – from high-kill shelters in North Georgia.

All productions will take place at the MJCCA’s Morris and Rae Frank Theatre. For more information or to purchase tickets, call the Company J Box Office at (678) 812-4002 or visit atlantajcc.org/boxoffice.
