Legally Blonde Esher
Our young cast are currently rehearsing Legally Blonde the Musical Jr in preparation for their performances in November & December. This got me thinking about role models and how books, plays and films can be instrumental in inspiring us to do or be better. Here are a few examples of inspirational storylines:
Sandra Bullock shines brightly as the larger than life, Leigh Anne Tuohy, who was able to look beyond a young man’s circumstance and realise his full potential. This heart-warming tale is a testament to humanity and illustrates beautifully the heights people can reach with love, faith and support behind them.
