HUNTINGTON —  There will be one hot blonde hanging out in Ritter Park Amphitheater this July, as Huntington Outdoor Theatre announces the cast for its 19th season.

 “We are continuing the tradition of bringing some of the finest summer entertainment to the tri-state” stated Helen Freeman President, Artistic Director, and Stage Director for this summer’s production Legally Blonde. “The auditions for this summer were amazing; every time we hold auditions it just reinforces how much talent there is in the tri-state. HOT is extremely happy to be providing people the opportunity to perform in front of thousands of people.”

Headlining this years cast is Kathryn Davis who in a quirky twist of fate is in fact a young attorney practicing at Huddleston Bolen LLP in Huntington. “I’m so excited to be cast in this role; l am extremely happy to be able to integrate both of my degrees, musical theater and law in the show. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity,” states Ms. Davis. Also featured is local anchorman, news caster Kenny Bass, “I’m so pleased to play the role of Callahan, and appreciate HOT giving me this opportunity.” In addition to the main show, this year’s Children’s preshow will again feature a group of extremely talented young people.
