Casey has Blonde moment

Published 22 March 2011

Natalie Casey is to join the cast of Legally Blonde The Musical on 26 April to play beautician Paulette, replacing Denise Van Outen.

Casey is a former co-star of Sheridan Smith, who originated the lead role of Elle Woods when Legally Blonde opened at the Savoy theatre in December 2009; the pair starred together in long-running sitcom Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps.

In addition to her television work – which also includes C4 soap Hollyoaks – Casey has been seen on stage in Well at the Apollo theatre, the musical Fame in the West End and, most recently, the Menier Chocolate Factory’s music hall romp The Invisible Man.

Casey joins a Legally Blonde cast that currently includes Susan McFadden as Elle, Peter Davison as Professor Callahan and Olivier Award nominee Alex Gaumond as Emmett. Gaumond recently announced he is to leave the show in June, to be replaced by Lee Mead.

Based on the hit 2001 film starring Reese Witherspoon, Legally Blonde The Musical tells the tale of sorority girl turned law student Elle Woods, who sets out to prove that staying true to yourself never goes out of fashion.

The show, directed and choreographed by Jerry Mitchell, collected three Olivier Awards earlier this month, including the coveted Best New Musical prize and trophies for Smith and the show’s original Paulette, Jill Halfpenny.

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
