Staccato Youth Performance Troupe presents 'Legally Blonde The Musical JR' at Historic Owen Theatre

The Branson Regional Arts Council’s Staccato Performance Troupe presents “Legally Blonde The Musical JR” for five exciting performances from Friday, April 12, to Sunday, April 14, 2024. The production is rated G, and showtimes are 7 p.m. (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) and 2 p.m. (Saturday, Sunday).


Tickets for this production are $20 (Adults 18-plus) and $12 (Youth 4-17), with lap children admitted free of charge. Advance reserved tickets are recommended and on sale now at BransonArts.org/tix or by calling the box office of the Historic Owen Theatre at 417-336-4255.


Based on the award-winning Broadway musical and the smash hit motion picture, “Legally Blonde The Musical JR” is a fabulously fun journey of self-empowerment and expanding horizons. The show’s instantly recognizable songs are filled with humor, wit and sass — leaving cast members and audiences alike seeing pink!


“Legally Blonde JR” follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. When Elle’s boyfriend, Warner, dumps her and heads to Harvard, claiming she’s not “serious” enough, Elle takes matters into her own hands, crafting a showy song-and-dance personal essay and charming her way into law school. Befriending classmate, Emmett, and spunky hairdresser, Paulette, along the way, Elle finds that books and looks aren’t mutually exclusive. As Elle begins outsmarting her peers, she realizes that law may be her natural calling after all.



Director Jacob Estes leads the production in addition to being choreographer, adding one more credit to his long list of acting and directing achievements on behalf of the Branson Regional Arts Council. Jacob has also performed at Kings Castle Theatre, Silver Dollar City, The Welk Resort, Sight and Sound Theatre, and on tour nationally with “Forever Young.”

Staccato Performance Troupe is an advanced show choir for area youth between the ages of 13-18 that combines a challenging music repertoire with entertaining choreography, on-stage acting and stage performance. Through the training season, members work towards a common goal while studying advanced music theory, vocal and physical warm ups, musical theatre vocal techniques (belting, mixing, telling a story), stage etiquette, hip hop, jazz and musical theatre dance. Open auditions for new Staccato members are held each fall, and under the direction of Jacob Estes, the students focus on elevating their “triple threat” skills and applying their formal training into a lively musical theatre presentation such as this production of “Legally Blonde The Musical JR.”


The production team also includes Karie Dykeman, Kristine Brown (producers), Kim Hale, Joshua Boulden (assistant producers), Dimitri Tsahiridis (stage manager),   Pamela Meadows (lighting design), Cysten Rainey (audio technician), Kaleigh Degarmo (audio assistant), Bee Rice, Juanita Wilson (spotlight),  Kyle Blanchard (theatre and special events manager), Josh Silvy (theatre inventory), and Jim Barber (BRAC Executive Director, Marketing and Design).
