Carnival 'Unici Super Eroi'

Whipped Into Shape

London actor Thomas Camilleri hosts a high intensity skipping workshop for the local cast of Legally Blonde The Musical.

Rehearsals are now in full swing for hit comic musical Legally Blonde, which will be staged at the Manoel Theatre in November.

The musical, which has received five-star reviews and numerous awards for its Broadway, West End and touring productions, is regarded as one of the most popular and exciting musicals to open in recent years.

With that in mind, ‘LB veteran’ Thomas Camilleri, who played the hilarious role of Carlos in the West End version for a year from 2010 to 2011, returned to Malta in July to work with the cast on one of the show’s most challenging numbers – Whipped Into Shape.

“This particular number involves skipping and singing for over five minutes straight,” smiles Camilleri, who has been living and working as an actor in London since he graduated from the Arts Educational School of Musical Theatre in 2009. “So the cast needs to work really hard to build up enough stamina to keep it going.

“After five days of workshops, I am really impressed with how they have come along. They now have all the moves necessary to make Whipped Into Shape one of the biggest and most impressive showstoppers in the production. The whole show is certainly set to thrill audiences next season.”

Legally Blonde (Malta) is being produced by renowned company MellowDrama, which has brought local theatregoers recent hits including ‘Yes, Prime Minister’, ‘Keeping Up Appearances’ and ‘The 39 Steps’.

It is directed by Steve Casaletto, with choreography by Kristina Schranz, vocal coaching by Denise Mulholland and musical direction by Paul Abela. The cast includes Jo Caruana as Elle, John Montanaro as Emmett, Daniel Lake as Warner and little Waffles as the iconic chihuahua Bruiser.    

The show will run from 9 - 11 and 17 - 19 November 2012.
