About the show:  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.

 

FAQ:

1.Are parents required to volunteer?

There are three times that parents/guardians are required to be involved if your child is cast in the show. Cast members are also required to be at the following dates and times:

  1. Informational meeting on November 18 at 6:00 – 45 minute commitment
  2. Choose one of two dates to volunteer: Load up (January 25 at 5:00, 1-2 hour commitment) or Load in (January 26 at 9:00 am, 1-4 hour commitment, depending on your willingness)
  3. Strike (February 1, 1-2 hour commitment, varies from production to production)

Additionally, we would welcome parent help at our set build.

2. What if I am only interested in certain roles?

There is a place on the audition form to state this.  If the director chooses not to cast you in the “only” roles you’ve chosen, one of two things will happen: 

  1. You will not be cast in the show, or 
  2. You will receive a phone call from the producer or stage manager offering you another role in the show.  It is probable that if you do not receive the specific role(s) you listed, you will not be offered an alternate role.

About the show:  The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits.
