AHS 'Legally Blonde' matinee supports Relay For Life

ARLINGTON — Arlington High School's theatrical production of "Legally Blonde" has partnered with the Arlington Relay For Life to support the American Cancer Society through a special matinee performance on Saturday, March 9, at 1 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to wear pink to represent the Relay For Life's fight against cancer, and also to coordinate with the fashions sported by Elle Woods, the lead character of the musical.

Prior to showtime, Arlington Relay For Life vendors will be selling products and providing refreshments in the lobby, the proceeds of which will go exclusively to Relay For Life.

"We are very excited to have the opportunity to work with Relay," AHS drama teacher Scott Moberly said. "It's an excellent cause, and we're looking forward to filling the Performing Arts Center with audience members who enjoy great musical theater and want to join in the fight against cancer."

Moberly added that fully half of the proceeds from this performance will be donated to Relay For Life.

Tickets and additional information are available at www.byrnesperformingarts.org or at the door.
