Legally Blonde, the Musical

Welcome to ACT's 2016 Winter Musical.

Guides: Only one of the following paragraphs will be displayed at a time. Please make sure the information is accurate for each case.

regpreview: Registration for this production will be open from November 24th through December 8th.

regopened: Registration for this production is now open and will remain open through December 8th.

regclosed: Registration for this production is now closed. E-mail notifications will be sent after the lottery, and we will update this page at that time.

regclosed_mailed: Registration for this production is now closed and acceptance e-mails have been sent. If you have not received a notification, please contact the producers.

At the end of the registration period, acceptance into the production will be decided based on a lottery. Children of ACT Board members have a limited guarantee of acceptance into the production. All ACTors accepted into the production, including board children, must audition for casting. Specific roles are offered to ACTors at the sole discretion of the artistic staff.

Please note the rehearsal schedule for the show. You will not be required for every rehearsal, only for those where your character is called. You can look at the schedule links for last summer's productions to see how this works. Absences are strongly discouraged throughout the production, and attendance is mandatory from the beginning of dress rehearsals on, so please plan accordingly. All actors and at least one parent are also expected to attend the first meeting on Monday, January 4th, where we will share more details about the production and have sign-ups for volunteer committees.

All payments or payment arrangements must be secured before auditions. There are no refunds after the start of auditions. Although we often have a waitlist, bringing actors into the production after auditions presents numerous challenges for the staff and does not give the late arrivals a fair start to the production.

More details regarding the audition process will be posted after acceptances are mailed out.

As is now our standard policy, final casting decisions will not be made until after the first week of rehearsals. The staff will use this time to get to know the cast and explore the show.

About the Show

A fabulously fun international award-winning musical based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde The Musical, follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery, and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. This action-packed musical explodes on the stage with memorable songs and dynamic dances. Equal parts hilarious and heart-warming warming, this musical is so much fun it should be illegal!

Based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde The Musical stays true to form with a peppy score and playful book. This musical is ridiculously enjoyable from start to finish.

Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside-down, however, when her boyfriend dumps her so he can start getting serious about his life and attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle uses her charm to get into Harvard Law. At school, she struggles with peers, professors, and Warner Huntington. With the help of Paulette and Emmett, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.

This musical is relatively new to the theatre world, catering to the present-day's generation and culture. Legally Blonde The Musical is perfect for high school and community theatre, featuring a large ensemble and several big song-and-dance numbers.
