AUDITIONS: LEGALLY BLONDE, JR.

Based on the award-winning Broadway musical and the smash hit motion picture, Legally Blonde The Musical Jr. is a fabulously fun journey of self-empowerment and expanding horizons. The show's instantly recognizable songs are filled with humor, wit, and sass, leaving both the cast and audience seeing pink!

Legally Blonde Jr. follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. When Elle's boyfriend, Warner, dumps her and heads to Harvard, claiming she's not "serious" enough, Elle takes matters into her own hands, crafting a showy song-and-dance personal essay and charming her way into law school. 
Befriending classmate, Emmett, and spunky hairdresser, Paulette, along the way, Elle finds that books and looks aren't mutually exclusive. As Elle begins outsmarting her peers, she realizes that law may be her natural calling after all.

Rehearsals will be worked around children’s schedules as much as possible.

As always, we consider homework a priority!

  • A picture (a school picture or snapshot is fine).

  • A resume or list of shows done.

  • Your conflicts for the rehearsal period.

  • Both jazz, and tap shoes (if you tap).

All conflicts MUST be submitted prior to callbacks.

If additional conflicts arise after casting, it may result in an actor being replaced.

 In reference to the character descriptions that follow—most characters we encounter currently are on the binary and are written with he/him or she/her pronouns and you will see that in the following descriptions. But however limiting the descriptions are, our casting seeks to be as inclusive as possible and we invite gender non-conforming, gender fluid, transgender and non-binary actors to submit for the roles they most identify with.

We will also list race/ethnicity when specific to the character but are otherwise seeking all races and ethnicities. In addition, we will list disability when specific to a character, but are otherwise seeking actors with disabilities as well as non-disabled actors for all roles. Please let us know if you have any questions, concerns, or if there are any accommodations we can provide.

We are actively committed to casting an inclusive show that reflects the community.

Elle Woods

The quintessential Valley Girl who follows her ex-boyfriend to Harvard Law School and realizes that she has more to offer than just a pretty face and a bubbly personality.

Vivienne Kensington

13-18, high alto belt. Vocal range: A3-F5

A smart, savvy, and uptight law student and Warner’s fiancée who initially dismisses Elle, but grows to be her friend. She has a very conservative East Coast background and is everything that Warner needs to make a serious move to become a lawyer.

Paulette

13-18, alto/mezzo. Vocal range: A3-A5

Abrash, caring, optimistic hair stylist who is friends with Elle and longs to find a man for herself. While she is a bold character, her self-esteem needs a little boost now and then.

Brooke Wyndam

An exercise video mogul who is also a former sorority girl. She is energetic and charismatic, yet currently on trial for murder. A triple-threat: a great singer, dancer and actress.

A bold, brassy, no-nonsense law student with academic credits that would intimidate anyone.

Emmett Forrest

13-18, tenor. Vocal range: B2-A4 (may be adjusted depending upon who is cast)

A smart and sensitive law student who takes Elle under his wing. He is charming, quirky, loveable, and friendly. He has had to work hard his entire life to get into Harvard Law School, and nothing is going to come between him and becoming a partner in Callahan's law firm, except maybe his surprising love for Elle.

Warner Huntington III

13-18. Vocal range: Eb3-Ab4 (may be adjusted depending upon who is cast)

A good-looking but shallow and pompous guy who breaks Elle's heart and heads off to Harvard Law. Elle's ex-boyfriend, and is caught between his former life with Elle and his newfound serious East Coast life with Vivienne.

Law Students Aaron Schultz and Sundeep Agrawal Padamadan

13-18, baritone

Featured law students with academic credits that would intimidate anyone. Fun roles for actors who can really bring their unique selves to these parts.

Kyle

The hunky UPS delivery man who Paulette has her eyes on each time his job brings him to the salon.

Strong dancer.

Dewey

12-18
