judithb@millertonnews.com

MILLBROOK — “Legally Blonde” is a fun little play, a bit of froth for a bright spot in a dismal winter’s end. The production put on by the Millbrook High School Drama Club rose above the trite story due to the talent of the performers and the able direction of Chelsea Edson.
