Legally Blonde: The Musical Character Breakdown
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 and willing to be/become blonde!
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. Must be comfortable with dogs. 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. Actor must be very comfortable on stage to best display the character’s charisma!
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. Must be willing to be/become a brunette.
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. If you are auditioning for this role, you may be asked to jump rope while singing at your audition!
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. Must be comfortable with dogs. Irish dancing skills are a plus!
Enid Hoops - (G3-G5 Soprano Belt) - Enid is a strong, opinionated, feminist law student at Harvard. Great comedic timing!
