Of all the stage musicals based on hit movies over the years ("Applause," "Promises, Promises," etc.), few have hit the ground running with the wit, verve and sheer entertainment value of "Legally Blonde," now in its second and final weekend at Golden West College. This satirical creation of Heather Hach (book) and Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin (music and lyrics) is a delicious sendup of modern society as it details a young woman's trek through Harvard Law School in pursuit of both a law degree and her recently detached boyfriend.

Matt Muggia, a U.S. Marine veteran, remembers the disappointment he felt when he was deployed overseas, opened up a care package and thought he spotted a package of Oreos. But they weren't really Oreos. They were a knock-off brand. "I was totally grateful when I got a package, but nothing made me more mad than getting a knock-off Oreo," said Muggia, president of Golden West College's Service Veteran Organization. "I was like, 'Are you kidding me?'" Muggia made sure only the best made its way into the 30 to 40 holiday care packages that were prepared and shipped to Army and Marine units in Afghanistan by Golden West's SVO. The group made sure the packages were mailed to outlying areas that rarely receive items throughout the year.

Created by the veteran comedy writers Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore, who have carved out a career with such risque farces as "Love, Sex, and the I.R.S.," "Suitehearts" and "What the Bellhop Saw" (to name just a few that have been presented locally)
