Carrick-on-Suir Musical Society has kick started preparations for its 2017 show, the musical version of the hit Hollywood comedy "Legally Blonde".

The Musical Society's members are certainly not resting on their laurels after completing an eight day run of their annual Halloween panto and competing in the Carrick-on-Suir Music Theatre Festival. 

"Legally Blonde" boasts a large cast and the main cast members have been selected though some smaller parts still need to be assigned.

Louise Mulcahy has been chosen to perform the lead role of Elle Woods, which Reese Witherspoon played in the film.

Ray Nolan will play the male lead of Emmett Forrest, who is Elle's love interest while Keith Greene takes on the role of Elle's law professor Prof. Callaghan. Emmet Donlan will play Elle's former boyfriend Warner Huntington and Sandra Power will play Vivienne Kensington.

AIMS award winning actress and singer Irene Malone will play Elle's manicurist friend Paulette Bounofonte while Marie Kelly will play Brooke Wyndham, who is accused of murdering her rich husband while Siobhan McCarthy will be Harvard student Enid Hoopes.

The cast also includes Caolan Deehy-Power, who will play Aaron Shultz and Carlos, James Dowley, who will be Sundeep and Nikos, Bobby Landers, who will play Kyle and Jenny Hogan will be the Judge and Winthrop.

Other cast members are Seamus Power, who will play Lowell, Fergus Power, who will be Pforzheimer, Decky Robinson is cast as Dewey, and Padraig Sheehan will play Mr Woods.

Fiona Hennessy will be Mrs Woods and District Attorney Joyce Riley while Jordan Freeman will play Brooke's step-daughter Chutney Wyndham and Chris O'Hanlon will be Grandmaster Chad.

Eleven Musical Society members will play the Delta Nu college sorority members in the show. They are Siobhan Grace-Regan, Tarryn Attlee, Ashley Cooke, Jennifer Williams, Sheridan Brady, Becca Laste, Nicole McGrath, Rachel Fogarty, Hazel Comerford, Aisling Gough and Jordan Freeman.

The smaller chorus parts that still need to be filled include shop assistants, hairdresser assistant, a court stenographer, a TV reporter and Vivienne's friend Whitney.
