Show Info

Legally Blonde is the 2011 London Olivier Award winner for Best Musical and was nominated for 7 Tony Awards. Based on the hit film of the same name, Legally Blonde follows the transformation of Elle Woods, a UCLA sorority girl from Malibu, as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. Elle appears to have it all but her life is turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner dumps her so he can attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle ingeniously charms her way into the prestigious law school. While there, she struggles with peers, professors and her ex. With the support of some new friends, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential while breaking down stereotypes and finding the man of her dreams.  Legally Blonde is a fantastic narrative about standing up for yourself, loving who you are and realizing your full potential.

Casting Breakdown

The show uses two live dogs (a Chihuahua and a Bull Dog). All actors must be comfortable around dogs.  If you have allergies or sensitivities to these animals, we suggest you not audition.

Principals

Elle Woods

Female 20 -25 (Gb2-G5 Pop Belt) 

A Malibu socialite and fashionista extraordinaire. This UCLA Homecoming Queen and Delta Nu President is an effervescent college-age girl who follows her ex-boyfriend to Harvard Law School and realizes that she has more than just a pretty face and a bubbly personality to offer the world. She is lovable, determined, vulnerable, energetic and outgoing. A true triple threat (tap dance skills are a plus).

 

Emmett Forrest

Male 20 – 30 (B2-A4 Tenor) 

Professor Callahan’s teaching assistant. He is smart, quirky, sensitive and personable. He ends up taking Elle under his wing and believes in her when it seems that no one else will. He always appears a bit scruffy but his looks are his last concern. A strong singer/actor with great comedic timing.

Paulette Buonofuonte

Female 35-45 (A3-A5 Pop Belt) 

Owner of Hair Affair, a local salon. She’s a bit of a bombshell, who happens to not see it herself and is therefore insecure. She is fashionable and curvaceous, but a little tacky, with hair and clothes that make “a statement”. Must be comfortable with dogs, must be willing to be kissed on stage. Strong comic timing and Bostonian accent is a plus.

Professor Callahan

Male 40 – 50  (A2-F#4 Baritone) 

A pompous and manipulative Criminal Law professor at Harvard. Actor must be comfortable with a stage kiss, however awkward. Callahan should be charismatic but able to turn instantly into a conniving shark in a moment.

Warner Huntington III

Male 20-25 (Eb3-Ab4 Tenor)

Elle’s college boyfriend. Warner is attractive and charming but very self-absorbed. He will do whatever it takes to achieve his dream of becoming a senator by the time he’s 30, including breaking Elle’s heart.

Vivienne Kensington/Others

Female 20-25 (A3-F5 High Pop Belt) 

Warner’s new Blueblood girlfriend. Vivienne is an overachieving, stuck-up, wealthy, smart and savvy Harvard Law student who is intellectually driven. She feels very threatened by Elle’s presence at Harvard, but in the end becomes a great ally. This actor also plays a couple other small roles.

Brooke Wyndham/Others

Female 25-35  (A3-G5 Alto or Soprano) 

Brooke is an exercise video star and former Delta Nu sorority girl who was accused of murder. Being physically fit is a must for this role, to properly do high level aerobics with enough stamina to continue singing. If you are auditioning for this role, be prepared to jump rope while singing at your audition. Actor also appears as a few supporting roles in the first act.

Female 20 -25 (G#3-F5 Belt)

Serena/Others

Female 20 -25 (G#3-F5 Belt)

Sorority Girl… She is the iconic UCLA cheerleader sorority sister. Margot, Serena, & Pilar are Elle’s entourage who follow her through the story acting as her “Greek Chorus”. Must be strong singers and dancers with good comic timing and youthful energy.

Margot/Others

Sorority Girl…She is the seemingly dim-witted, boy-crazy sorority sister.  Always out for a good time. Margot, Serena, & Pilar are Elle’s entourage who follow her through the story acting as her “Greek Chorus”. Must be strong singers and dancers with good comic timing and youthful energy.

Enid Hoops/Others

Female 20 -25 (G3-G5 Soprano Belt)

Enid is an ex-peace corps volunteer who is strong, opinionated, and a proud (butch) feminist law student at Harvard. Great comedic timing and strong Broadway belt! Must be a decent dancer as well.
