Character Descriptions

Elle Woods - Los Angeles socialite, and fashionista extraordinaire. This UCLA Homecoming Queen and Delta Nu President 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 being kissed on stage, must be comfortable with dogs, must be willing to be/become blonde!

 

Emmett Forrest - Professor Callahan’s teaching assistant. 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. He always appears a little underdressed, scruffy ex-Harvard student. He is now a lawyer, who is not taken seriously by his colleagues. It is implied this is due to his lackof fashion sense. His looks are his last concern. Must be comfortable being kissed on stage, must be comfortable with dogs. A strong singer/actor with great comedic timing!

 

Paulette Buonofuonte - Owner of Hair Affair, a local salon. She’s a bit of a bombshell, who happens to not see it herself and is therefore insecure. She is fashionable and curvaceous, but a little tacky, with hair that makes “a statement”. 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 willing to be kissed on stage. Strong comic timing and Bostonian accent is a plus, a strong singer with a powerful belt to match the personality!

 

Pilar, Margot, Serena - Pilar is the sassy and sensible sorority sister. She could be considered the “hippie chic” that is prevalent in California, because her character is free spirited. Margot is the seemingly dim-witted, boy-crazy sorority sister. Serena is the iconic UCLA cheerleader 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 are REQUIRED!

 

Professor Callahan - Callahan is a pompous and manipulative Criminal Law professor at Harvard. Actor must be comfortable with a stage kiss, however awkward. Callahan should be charismatic but able to turn instantly into a conniving shark in a moment.

 

Warner Huntington III - Elle’s college boyfriend. Warner is attractive and charming but very self-absorbed. He will do whatever it takes to achieve his dream of becoming a senator by the time he’s 30, including breaking Elle’s heart. Actor must be willing to perform a convincing stage kiss, and very comfortable on stage to best display the characters charisma!

 

Vivienne Kensington - Warner’s new Blueblood girlfriend. Vivienne is an overachieving, stuck-up, wealthy, smart and savvy Harvard Law student who is intellectually driven. Yet she feels very threatened by Elle's presence at Harvard. Must be comfortable being kissed on stage, must be willing to be/become a brunette. Powerful solo in Act II!

 

Brooke Wyndham - 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, be prepared to jump rope while singing on stage!

 

Kyle B. O'Boyle - 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, must be willing to be kissed on stage. Irish dancing skills are a plus!
