Maine State Music Theatre musical features rescue pet

I grew up in Harpswell, Maine, five miles from Brunswick and the Maine State Music Theatre located at Bowdoin College. During the summers of my teen years, I would usher at MSMT . That meant I could see the shows for free. A great deal for a poor teenager.

I wish MSMT had had a show like Legally Blonde there when I was a teen. Dogs plus theater equals tons of fun.

But it’s not just the fact that there are dogs in this production that’s noteworthy. It’s the fact that two rescued dogs are starring in Legally Blonde as “Bruiser”. MSMT’s “Bruiser” was scheduled to be euthanized when he was discovered and now he’s starred on Broadway as the original Bruiser. Not to mention that he’s gone on to star in the National Tour and other productions.

This is the final week of the musical based on the popular movies.The show closes its curtain on July 14.
