The Chippewa Valley Theatre Guild will present "Legally Blonde the Musical" Thursday, Aug. 5, through Sunday, Aug. 8, at Heyde Center for the Arts, 3 S. High St., Chippewa Falls.

The musical, based on the popular film starring Reese Witherspoon, follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams.
