About this Production

Carrie St. Louis as Elle in Legally Blonde

Starlight self-produces and presents one show to Kansas City as part of the Broadway season each year. Both local and national performers will appear on the historic Starlight stage to bring the iconic story of Elle Woods to life.

The show will also be directed and choreographed by Broadway veteran Nikki Snelson, who originated the role of Brooke Wyndham in the original 2007 Broadway production of Legally Blonde The Musical.

Elle wouldn’t be Elle without her sidekick Bruiser, who will be played by a Chihuahua named Marley from Overland Park, KS. Another canine star named Arty from KC English Bulldog Rescue will play Rufus, Paulette’s furry companion.
