      Legally Blonde hits Northern Michigan University stage

      A production of Legally Blonde will be taking the stage this weekend at the Forrest Roberts Theater in Marquette.

      Northern Michigan University students will present the story of a sorority girl who is dumped by her boyfriend and then tries to win him back by enrolling in Harvard Law School.

      Cast members say the show carries an important message.

      "It carries a message of learning to be true to yourself. Knowing who you are and growing, really just being exactly who you are, not who everyone else wants you to be," said actress Susan Boyle who plays Elle Woods.

      The play opens Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. and runs through the weekend with a matinee performance on Saturday at 1:30 p.m.
