ABOUT THE SHOW
Legally Blonde The Musical follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. Action-packed and exploding with memorable songs and dynamic dances - this musical is so much fun, it should be illegal!
Elle Woods appears to have it all. 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, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.
CHARACTER BREAKDOWN & VOCAL REQUIREMENTS
Elle Woods (Gb2-G5): Elle is a very bubbly 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 very lovable, determined, vulnerable, energetic and outgoing! A true triple threat. Must be comfortable being kissed on stage, must be comfortable with dogs.
Emmett Forrest (B2-A4): Emmett is a smart, quirky, sensitive, and personable law student. He ends up taking Elle under his wing and believes in her when it seems that no one else does. Must be comfortable being kissed on stage, must be comfortable with dogs. A strong singer/actor with great comedic timing.

She and Elle help each other achieve their dreams! Must be comfortable with dogs, must be willing to be kissed on stage. A Bostonian accent is a plus, a strong singer with a powerful belt to match the personality!

Serena is the energetic cheerleader, from Jewish heritage, sorority sister. Margot, Serena, & Pilar are Elle's entourage who follow her through the story acting as her “Greek Chorus”. Strong singers and dancers with good comic timing and youthful energy!
