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.
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.

Elle Woods may appear like a typical blonde California sorority girl, but don't count her out. She is hardworking, optimistic and tenacious. Must be an excellent performer in all areas: singing, dancing and acting. Earnest, loveable spirit.
Margot, Serena, and Pilar
Margot, Serena and Pilar are 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!
Kate is a featured Delta Nu sister - the academic of the bunch.
Warner Huntington III
Warner Huntington III needs to be 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. Looking for someone who can play both worlds.
Winthrop, Lowell and Pforzheimer are three admissions officers of Harvard Law School who eventually admit Elle into the program after some critical evaluation. Great actors, capable of showing some age and character.
Emmet Forrest 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. Strong actor with a great singing voice and the acting chops to boot.
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. Searching for actors with distinct personalities and who aren't afraid to make bold choices.
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. Must be a great singer and an actress who can make the bold transition from being Elle's nemesis to being her friend.
Whitney is Vivienne's law school friend and partner in mischief when it comes to bringing down Elle. Performer who has wonderful energy and presence.
Professor Callahan is the most-feared professor at Harvard Law School. Must be able to convey authority and strength and use his best acting chops to portray this villainous role.
While she is a bold character, her self-esteem needs a little boost now and then. Great singer and an even better actor.
Brooke Wyndham 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.
Paulette's brash ex-husband who lives in a trailer and holds her dog captive. Must be fearless in his acting choices.
Chutney Wyndham 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.
Kyle is the UPS delivery man who Paulette has her eyes on each time his job brings him to the salon.
Part of Paulette's entourage at the salon who are very adept at the "Bend and Snap." Performers who can sing and dance well, and, most importantly, have a lot of personality. Looking for unique and diverse performers.
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.
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.
The ensemble roles consist of Waiters, Delta Nus, Frat Boys, Greek Chorus, Students and Inmates.
