810 Caroline Street, Downtown Fredericksburg

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.

Character Breakdown


Elle Woods

Elle Woods may appear like a typical blonde California sorority girl, but don't count her out. She is hardworking, optimistic and tenacious. This can be a performer with abilities in all areas: singing, dancing and acting--and a young lady with an earnest, loveable spirit.

Gender: Female


Margot, Serena, and Pilar

Margot, Serena and Pilar are Elle's trio of best friends and Delta Nu sisters. These three roles are perfect for a group of young ladies with great singing and acting abilities, and most importantly, lots of energy!


Vocal range top: C#5

Vocal range bottom: F#3


Kate

Kate is a featured Delta Nu sister - the academic of the bunch. This is a great role for a young performer who has a little more experience than the rest of the Delta Nu girls.

Gender: Female


Warner Huntington III

Warner Huntington III is a fantastic role for a young man who is both a good singer and actor. He is Elle's ex-boyfriend and caught between his former life with Elle and his newfound serious East Coast life with Vivienne. This is a guy who can play both worlds.

Gender: Male


Admission Officers

Winthrop, Lowell and Pforzheimer are three admissions officers of Harvard Law School who eventually admit Elle into the program after some critical evaluation. These actors may look different but complement one another well.

Gender: Any


Emmett Forrest

Emmett Forrest has had to work hard his entire life to get into Harvard Law School, and nothing is going to come between him and becoming a partner in Callahan's law firm, except maybe his surprising love for Elle. This can be an actor with a great singing voice and the acting chops to boot.

Gender: Male


Law Students

Aaron Schultz, Sundeep Agrawal Padamadan and Enid Hoopes are three featured law students with academic credits that would intimidate anyone. These are fun roles for actors who can really bring their unique selves to these parts.

Gender: Any


Vivienne Kensington

Vivienne Kensington is the very opposite of Elle, if judging only by demeanor. She comes from a very conservative East Coast background and is everything that Warner needs to make a serious move to become a lawyer. This is a singer and an actress who can make the bold transition from being Elle's nemesis to being her friend.

Gender: Female


Whitney

Whitney is Vivienne's law school friend and partner in mischief when it comes to bringing down Elle. This is fun role for a less experienced performer who has wonderful energy and presence.

Gender: Female


Professor Callahan

Professor Callahan is the most-feared professor at Harvard Law School. This is a young man who can convey authority and strength. Callahan will need his acting chops to portray this villainous role.

Gender: Male


Paulette

Paulette is a wonderful role for a comedienne. While she is a bold character, her self-esteem needs a little boost now and then. This actor will also need to sing.

Gender: Female


Brooke Wyndham

Brooke Wyndham is a famous fitness video guru on trial for killing her husband. This is a high-spirited role for a young lady who is a triple-threat: a great singer, dancer and actress.

Gender: Female


Dewey

Paulette's brash ex-husband who lives in a trailer and holds her dog captive. Although Dewey doesn't have a lot of stage time, it is a great cameo role for a young man.

Gender: Male


Chutney Wyndham

Chutney Wyndham has a really bad perm and an even worse attitude. She is Brooke's unhappy stepdaughter who is actually guilty for killing her father and framing Brooke. This is a role for an actress who may be new to the stage but has hilarious instincts.

Gender: Female


Kyle

Kyle is the UPS delivery man who Paulette has her eyes on each time his job brings him to the salon.

Gender: Male


Salon Employees

Part of Paulette's entourage at the salon who are very adept at the "Bend and Snap." Performers who can sing and dance well, and, most importantly, have a lot of personality. This is as wonderful opportunity to for a group of unique and diverse performers.


Grandmaster Chad

Grandmaster Chad is a fun cameo role for a young guy who is a great musician but may be less experienced onstage. This is a standout role from the other fraternity brothers and requires a lot of energy.

Gender: Male


Featured Ensemble

Gaelen, Judge, Jet Blue Pilot, Saleswoman, Store Manager, Prison Guard, Bookish Client and Sabrina are featured roles for young performers who may have less experience on the stage but have vibrant personalities. Foremost, this can be a range of actors, each one willing to give their unique voices to these roles.

Gender: Any


Ensemble

The ensemble roles consist of Waiters, Delta Nus, Frat Boys, Greek Chorus, Students and Inmates. No role is small, especially in the world of Legally Blonde JR., where actors change hats quickly from character to character.

Gender: Any
