Please prepare 16-32 bars of a song that best shows off your vocal strengths and personality. You may be asked to complete a small movement sequence so bring comfortable clothing you can dance in.
All roles are available. No roles have been pre-cast, other than our canine roles.
Elle Woods - (Gb2-G5 Soprano Belt) - 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, tap dance skills are a plus. Must be comfortable with dogs.
Emmett Forrest - (B2-A4 Tenor) - 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. A strong singer/actor with great comedic timing!
Paulette Buonofuonte - (A3-A5 Soprano Belt) - Paulette is the funny owner of Hair Affair, a local salon. She becomes friends with Elle and longs to marry a man from Ireland. She and Elle help each other achieve their dreams! Must be comfortable with dogs. A Bostonian accent is a plus, a strong singer with a powerful belt to match the personality!
Pilar, Margot, Serena - (G#3-F5 Belt) - Pilar is the sassy and sensible sorority sister. Margot is the seemingly dim-witted, boy-crazy sorority sister. 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!
Professor Callahan - (A2-F#4 Baritone) - Callahan is a pompous and manipulative law professor at Harvard. Callahan should be charismatic but able to turn instantly into a conniving shark at the turn of a hat.
Warner Huntington III - (Eb3-Ab4 Tenor) - Warner is attractive and charming but very self-absorbed. He will do whatever it takes to achieve his dream of becoming a senator, including breaking Elle’s heart.
Vivienne Kensington - (A3-F5 HUGE Soprano Belt) - Vivienne is an overachieving, stuck-up, wealthy, smart and savvy law student who is intellectually driven. Yet she feels very threatened by Elle's presence at Harvard.
Brooke Wyndham - (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. Must be able to jump rope while singing.
Kyle B. O'Boyle - (no vocal requirement) - Kyle is a physically fit, smooth-talking UPS deliveryman. We soon find out that he is Paulette's dream guy. Actor will play another role in Act I. Must be comfortable with dogs.
Enid Hoops - (G3-G5 Soprano Belt) - Enid is a strong, opinionated, feminist law student at Harvard. Great comedic timing!
