Open Auditions for Legally Blonde

Legally Blonde Open Auditions

Are you 12 to 19 years old and can sing, dance or act?
Now is your opportunity to join award-winning Rising Stars for –

Legally Blonde – the Musical

To be performed in Beccles Public Hall on the 17th – 19th March 2022

Rising Stars is looking for enthusiastic and talented singers, dancers and actors (especially boys!) to perform in this fabulously fun production. Based on the popular film, ‘Legally Blonde – The Musical’ follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams.

All existing members and anyone wishing to join Rising Stars are invited to an Information Afternoon at 2pm on Sunday 7th November in Blyburgate Hall, Beccles, where there will be the opportunity to find out more about the show, meet the production team and get more details about the audition pieces.

To become a Legally Blonde cast member, you will need to –

• Be a student at high school* or sixth form / college (max age 19)
• Book an audition slot by completing an Application to Audition form available here
• Attend the auditions on Sunday 14th November

These are open auditions. ALL roles and ensemble are available for casting.

If you can’t make it to the Information Afternoon but are still interested in being involved with the show, just let us know and we’ll make sure all the information given out at the event is emailed to you.

*Because Legally Blonde is strongly geared towards older teenagers and is a complex and difficult show with a PG13 rating, the cast is restricted to those of high school age or older (school years 7 to 13).

We appreciate that this may disappoint some new members who were looking forward to joining Rising Stars. To compensate, the show after Legally Blonde (to be performed in July 2021) will be much more suited to the younger cast members with many of the principal roles being in the 8 to 13 year age group.
