SYNOPSIS: Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside-down, however, when her boyfriend dumps her so he can start getting serious about his life and attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle uses her charm to get into Harvard Law. At school, she struggles with peers, professors, and Warner Huntington. With the help of Paulette and Emmett, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.

Legally Blonde is a comedy so all roles require strong character acting and a sense of fun and confidence. We view the men’s and ladies ensembles as characters in their own right.

AUDITIONS: Legally Blonde contains many opportunities for teenagers and adults of all ages. If you’ve ever thought about being involved in a show but haven’t had the confidence, take the plunge. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t done this before. It’s an opportunity to make new friends, discover hidden talents, and have a fantastic time.

For a lead/featured role – Preparation of a song that demonstrates your vocal capabilities. Please provide a backing track or sheet music. (A pianist will be available at the audition). There will be a cold reading of some script as well.  Supporting roles and ensemble members should still book an audition. We want to get a rough idea of numbers and abilities.

Auditions will be booked in 1 hour blocks, where you will perform your song and do the cold reading of the script in the first half hour, then you will learn a small dance routine with your fellow auditionees and perform as a group (you will have approximately 30 mins to learn this). Dance audition is essential.


To book your audition, please email the director: with a preferred date.
