Catch the Opening Performance of NCC's "Legally Blonde" Friday
This Friday, Newport Central Catholic will host the opening performance of its spring play, Legally Blonde, at 7:30 p.m.
Friday's Gala Performance will begin with a social hour starting at 6:00 p.m. followed by the show. For over twenty years, the Gala Performance of the school play has benefited the Newport Central Catholic Tuition Assistance Fund. This fund directly assists students with a reduction in tuition charged based upon financial need. About 32% of the student body at NCC receives some sort of tuition assistance. Past Gala Performances of the play have raised over $915,000 for the tuition assistance program and last year alone $100,000 was raised.
This year’s school musical, Legally Blonde, takes the audience on a journey with Elle Woods from UCLA to Harvard law school where she pursues Warner Huntington III in the name of love. Over the course of the journey, she discovers truths about herself and others - mainly that people are not always what they may first seem to be. Most importantly she learns to trust her own instincts and talents, ultimately discovering that she must believe in herself first.
