A fabulously fun award-winning musical based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde, The Musical follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery, and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. This action-packed musical explodes on the stage with memorable songs and dynamic dances. Equal parts hilarious and heart-warming, this musical is so much fun it should be illegal!

Actors are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with the show prior to auditions. Please prepare no more than 1 minute of a song with accompaniment.
