AVAILABLE ROLES (the age range is flexible)

 

ELLE WOODS  21-28 [Female, Mezzo-Soprano Belt to C#5]
Confident & bubbly, Elle is the quintessential blonde Valley Girl, who follows her boyfriend to Harvard Law School and realizes she has much more to offer than a pretty face. She lifts up those around her, due to her intense drive and positivity. This actor should be a triple threat, and able to carry the momentum of the show (she is onstage for nearly the entire runtime). Must be comfortable being kissed on stage, must be comfortable with dogs. 

EMMETT FORREST 23-32 [Male, Tenor]
A smart, sensitive, and sometimes sarcastic law student who mentors Elle. He should be charming, a bit nerdy, lovable, and friendly. He’s worked his entire life to get into Harvard Law School, and nothing will come between him and becoming a partner in Callahan’s law firm, except maybe his surprising love for Elle. Must be comfortable being kissed on stage, must be comfortable with dogs.

PAULETTE BUONAFONTE  30-55 [Female, Mezzo-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, must be comfortable being kissed on stage. This actor should be a powerful belter vocally.

PROFESSOR CALLAHAN 40-65 [Male, Tenor]
A pompous, smooth, authoritative, and manipulative law professor. He has a reputation for being an extremely strict and tough professor and a highly successful lawyer. He will do anything to get what he wants, regardless of morality. Actor should be comfortable with a stage kiss.

WARNER HUNTINGTON III 21-28 [Male, Tenor]
Good-looking and charming, yet shallow and self-absorbed. Warner breaks up with Elle to go to Harvard Law School. He doesn’t think Elle is smart and serious enough to settle down with. He cares deeply about his reputation. Actor must be comfortable with a stage kiss.

VIVIENNE KENSINGTON 21-28 [Female, Mezzo-Soprano Belt to G#5]
A smart, serious, and uptight law student, seemingly the polar opposite of Elle. She comes from a very conservative East Coast background and is everything that Warner needs to make a serious move to become a lawyer. When she becomes Warner’s fiancée, she initially dismisses Elle, but grows to become her friend. Must be comfortable being kissed on stage, must be willing to be/become a brunette.

BROOKE WYNDHAM 30-50 [Female, Mezzo-Soprano to G#5]
An exercise video tycoon who is an alum of Elle’s sorority. She is energetic and charismatic, yet currently on trial for her husband’s murder. Dance skills and being physically fit is a must for this role, to properly do high level aerobics with enough stamina to continue singing. 

ENID HOOPS 21-28 [Female, Soprano/Mezzo Belter]
Enid is a strong, passionate, and outwardly feminist law student at Harvard, who is skeptical of Elle, and eventually becomes her friend. Must have great comedic timing and be able to patter-sing clearly.

SERENA, MARGOT, AND PILAR 17-28 [Females, Soprano/Mezzo/Alto]
These three ladies are Elle’s trio of best friends and sorority sisters, who help her navigate the story by acting as a “Greek Chorus”. Serena is the energetic cheerleader; Margot is the seemingly dim-witted, boy-crazy sorority sister. Pilar is the sassy and sensible one. They should be high energy performers to make a complementary, dynamic group.

KATE 18-28 [Female, Mezzo-Soprano Belter]
The brainiest and quirkiest sorority sister in Delta Nu, who helps Elle study to get into Harvard Law School. She has a featured vocal solo in “What You Want”.

KYLE B. O’BOYLE 28-50 [Male, Any Voice Type]
An attractive, smooth-talking UPS delivery man. He is Paulette’s dream guy. Irish dance skills are a plus.

ENSEMBLE 16-60 [Males & Females, All Voice Types]

High energy cast of singers, dancers and actors to play Delta Nu Sorority Girls, Frat Boys, Harvard Law Students, Salon Employees/Patrons, Prison Inmates, etc. Must have big personalities/stage presence to play many featured roles, like:
