Sam Henderson On Music Directing “Legally Blonde the Musical”

Sam Henderson, Music Director of "Legally Blonde"


Legally Blonde has been particularly challenging for several reasons. The show itself is surprisingly music-heavy. In fact the score for this show is longer and much more involved than shows like Les Miserables and even some operas. Another big challenge was coming in right before the rehearsal process began since I was new and not having the normal 1-2 months of prep time I spend before taking on a show like this. Given this and the fact that I had a cast of 28 who I’d never met, much less worked with, I’m very pleased with how it’s all come together.

This show is a ton of fun, musically, and there are moments I look forward to each night. “Positive” and “Ireland” make me giggle every time I hear the lyrics, and playing “Bend and Snap” with the orchestra is a blast. I also look forward each night to hearing the crowd’s reaction to the show and the music. We especially appreciate those people who stick around at the end of the show to let the orchestra know how much they appreciate them!

Don’t miss the last two weeks of performances running Sept. 13 – 23! See you at the Dock!


The cast performs "Omigod You Guys."
