Elle Woods has come to Clear Creek High School.
Elle — portrayed by senior Emily Gerding — will star in “Legally Blonde the Musical” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The musical follows the plot of the 2001 movie, only with random outbursts of song, as Rachel Smith, the show’s director, put it.
Smith, a CCHS English teacher, said Gerding is “channeling her inner Elle. She has put in a lot of work to make (Elle) a fun, likable character.”
