Elle of a role for Kate

The Kingsley resident and former Sacred Heart College student is in final preparation for her dream lead role of Elle Woods in the Academy�s major mid-year musical, Legally Blonde, at Regal Theatre from June 13 to 20.

�I�ve been listening to all the songs ever since the musical came out,� Thomas said.

�I was absolutely ecstatic when I initially heard we were doing the show and then when I managed to get the role of Elle, I was extremely excited and humbled.

�It�s a big undertaking.�

It will be the first time the musical, based on the novel by Amanda Brown and film starring Reese Witherspoon, has been staged in Perth, although Thomas shares the honour with WAAPA alumni Lucy Durack, who performed in the east coast production.
