Legally Blonde Cast of Characters
Elle Woods - (Gb2-G5 Soprano Belt) – 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. Must be comfortable with dogs, must be willing to be/become blonde!
Emmett Forrest - (B2-A4 Tenor) – 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 lack of fashion sense. His looks are his last concern. Must be comfortable with dogs. A strong singer/actor with great comedic timing!
Paulette Buonofuonte - (A3-A5 Soprano Belt) - 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, 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. Strong comic timing and Bostonian accent is a plus, a strong singer with a powerful belt to match the personality!
Greek Chorus - Pilar, Margot, Serena - (G#3-F5 Belt) - Pilar is the sassy and sensible sorority sister. She could be considered the “hippie chic” that was prevalent in California at the time, 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 - (A2-F#4 Baritone) - Callahan is a pompous and manipulative Criminal Law professor at Harvard. Callahan should be charismatic but able to turn instantly into a conniving shark in a moment.
Warner Huntington III - (Eb3-Ab4 Tenor) – 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 very comfortable on stage to best display the characters charisma!
Vivienne Kensington - (A3-F5 HUGE Soprano Belt) – Warner’s new Blueblood1 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 willing to be/become a brunette. Powerful solo in Act II!
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, be prepared to jump rope while singing at your audition! “Whipped into Shape”
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 an ex-peace corps volunteer who is strong, opinionated, and a proud feminist law student at Harvard. Great comedic timing and strong Broadway belt!
Kate - (Bb3 – Eb5 Alto) - Delta Nu scholastic chair, the bookworm! Featured in "What You Want"
Chutney Wyndham - Brooke Wyndham's jealous step-daughter. Featured in the courtroom as a witness.
