Synopsis

Harvard's beloved blonde takes the stage by glittery pink storm in this fun and upbeat adaptation of the hit film and award-winning Broadway musical.

Based on the award-winning Broadway musical and the smash hit motion picture, Legally BlondeThe 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 cast members and audiences alike 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.

Legally Blonde JR. features large, energetic dance numbers with an expandable cast of sorority sisters, law school students, hairdressers and more.

 

 

Cast Information

Character Breakdown

Cast Size: Flexible Cast Size
Cast Type: Children
Dance Requirements: Standard

 

Elle Woods
Elle Woods may appear like a typical blonde California sorority girl, but don't count her out. She is hardworking, optimistic and tenacious. Cast an excellent performer in all areas: singing, dancing and acting. Most importantly, find a young lady with an earnest, love-able spirit.

Gender: Female

 

Margot, Serena, and Pilar
Elle's trio of best friends and Delta Nu sisters. These three roles are perfect for a group of young ladies with great singing and acting abilities, and most importantly, lots of energy! Handpick three girls who make a complementary, dynamic group.

Vocal range top: C#5
Vocal range bottom: F#3

 

Kate
Is a featured Delta Nu sister - the academic of the bunch. This is a great role for a young performer who has a little more experience than the rest of the Delta Nu girls.

Gender: Female

 

Warner Huntington III
Is a fantastic role for a young man who is both a good singer and actor. He is Elle's ex-boyfriend and caught between his former life with Elle and his newfound serious East Coast life with Vivienne. Be sure to cast a guy who can play both worlds.

Gender: Male

 

Admission Officers
Winthrop, Lowell and Pforzheimer are three admissions officers of Harvard Law School who eventually admit Elle into the program after some critical evaluation. These performers should be great actors, capable of showing some age and character. Feel free to cast three young actors who may look different but complement one another well.

Gender: Any

 

Emmett Forrest
Emmet 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. Cast your strongest actor with a great singing voice and the acting chops to boot.

Gender: Male

 

Law Students
Aaron Schultz, Sundeep Agrawal Padamadan and Enid Hoopes are three featured law students with academic credits that would intimidate anyone. These are fun roles for actors who can really bring their unique selves to these parts. Cast three young people with distinct personalities and who can make bold choice.

Gender: Any

 

Vivienne Kensington
Is the very opposite of Elle, if judging only by demeanor. She comes from a very conservative East Coast background and is everything that Warner needs to make a serious move to become a lawyer. Cast a great singer and an actress who can make the bold transition from being Elle's nemesis to being her friend.

Gender: Female

 

Whitney
Whitney is Vivienne's law school friend and partner in mischief when it comes to bringing down Elle.This is fun role for a less experienced performer who has wonderful energy and presence.

Gender: Female

 

Professor Callahan
Callahan is the most-feared professor at Harvard Law School. Be sure to find a young man who can convey authority and strength. Callahan need not be the most experienced singer, as long as he uses his best acting chops to portray this villainous role.

Gender: Male

 

Paulette
Paulette is a wonderful role for your best comedienne. While she is a bold character, her self-esteem needs a little boost now and then. Your performer should be a great singer and an even better actor.

Gender: Female

 

Brooke Wyndam
Brooke is a famous fitness video guru on trial for killing her husband. This is a high-spirited role for a young lady who is a triple-threat: a great singer, dancer and actress. Cast an advanced performer who can really portray her very difficult predicament.

Gender: Female

 

Dewey
Paulette's brash ex-husband who lives in a trailer and holds her dog captive. Although Dewey doesn't have a lot of stage time, it is a great cameo role for a young man who is less experienced but fearless in his acting choices.

Gender: Male

 

Chutney Wyndham
Chutney has a really bad perm and an even worse attitude. She is Brooke's unhappy stepdaughter who is actually guilty for killing her father and framing Brooke. This is a role for an actress who may be new to the stage but has hilarious instincts.

Gender: Female

 

Kyle
Kyle is the UPS delivery man who Paulette has her eyes on each time his job brings him to the salon. Cast a great actor who may have an Irish Jig in his back pocket.

Gender: Male

 

Salon Employees
Part of Paulette's entourage at the salon who are very adept at the "Bend and Snap." Cast three performers who can sing and dance well, and, most importantly, have a lot of personality. This is as wonderful opportunity to put together a group of unique and diverse performers.

 

Grandmaster Chad
Grandmaster Chad is a fun cameo role for a young guy who is a great musician but may be less experienced onstage.This is a standout role from the other fraternity brothers and requires a lot of energy.

Gender: Male

 

Featured Ensemble
Gaelen, Judge, Jet Blue Pilot, Saleswoman, Store Manager, Prison Guard, Bookish Client and Sabrina are featured roles for young performers who may have less experience on the stage but have vibrant personalities. Foremost, cast a range of actors, each one willing to give their unique voices to these roles.

Gender: Any

 

Ensemble
The ensemble roles consist of Waiters, Delta Nus, Frat Boys, Greek Chorus, Students and Inmates. No role is small, especially in the world of Legally Blonde JR., where actors change hats quickly from character to character. This show is full of energy, so make sure the kids you cast for each and every role are bright and dynamic.
