Put on your blonde wigs, pink outfits and singing voices because Legally Blonde The Musical is coming to a stage near you.
Newstead College is in the midst of preparing and rehearsing for the mid year show.
Teacher and director of the musical Alarna Hingston said the "basic skeleton" of Legally Blonde was done, and now they were filling in the gaps and putting the "meat on the bones".

"We are finishing off some choreography and really refining the characters and character development," she said.
"It's in the polishing stage now where we make everything look schmick, and add in the energy and thought process behind the characters."
Ms Hingston said Legally Blonde was chosen because of the amount of women in the cast.
"With mostly females it was a really good choice because at least all of my students could have opportunities, and then we are not trying to fill the male roles," she said.
"We knew that the year 11 students last year who were continuing on would be a part of [the show], and we had a rough idea of the numbers for the show."
However, though Ms Hingston said it was hard to get male students into musical theatre, there was also several strong males in the cohort who had continued from year 11 to year 12 to study drama.
"It's really difficult ... because of the stereotypes they may be given by the public and their peers, but I think these guys are all really proud to be in the show," she said.
Ms Hingston said the cast had doubled in size from the previous year, which she attributed to the performance moving from the Earl Arts Centre back to Newstead College's auditorium.
"I think when we were performing and [students] could walk past and see what was going on ... that's one of the reasons they have decided to join the class this year," she said.
Student Zarah Yakubu plays Paulette, a beautician who the lead character - Elle Woods - meets in her quest to get her ex-boyfriend back.
"I become close with Elle at my salon when she shows up wanting to be a brunette. Luckily I talk her out of it," she said.
"I'm kind of a comical character that relieves pressure of the seriousness that happens sometimes."
Ms Yakubu said it was fun to play an eccentric role that was different to her normal personality.
"I'm just really passionate about theatre and music as well so incorporating both into one is great," she said.
Fellow performer Kyron Clark, who plays Emmett, said he would encourage people to go to the performance as a lot of work had gone into the show.
Legally Blonde The Musical will run from August 11-14 with three evening shows and a matinee performance. Tickets will be on sale soon.
