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. Legally Blonde Jr. features large, energetic dance numbers with an expandable cast of sorority sisters, law school students, hairdressers and more (courtesy of Music Theatre International).

We will hold auditions for those who would like an opportunity for a role, solo, or featured dancer; however, you do NOT need to audition in order to participate in this camp. Auditions will be held on May 31 from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m., and callbacks will be held on June 1 from 4 to 8 p.m. Both will occur at the CYT Studios (6800 W. 153rd St. Suite A). Students who choose not to audition will be placed in the ensemble.
Those who wish to audition must prepare a one-minute song, be prepared for a short dance audition, and perform a memorized monologue, which is posted below. Students are strongly encouraged to provide sheet music to be played by our accompanist. Students should wear jazz shoes and comfortable/modest clothing for their dance audition.

Video Submissions: In person auditions are strongly encouraged for the benefit of both you and our directing teams, however, we understand families sometimes have conflicts with our audition dates. If you would like to submit a video audition you may film a video of your student singing 60 seconds or less of a song of their choice, performing one of the provided monologues (posted on this page by early April), and dancing 60 seconds or less of a choreographed routine. The dance routine should include at least one turn and a demonstration of your flexibility (i.e. kicks or splits). The audition video should be emailed to email@example.com no later than May 31 by 12:00 noon.
Elle Woods: She may appear like a typical blonde California sorority girl, but don't count her out. She is hardworking, optimistic and tenacious. She is a young lady with an earnest, loveable spirit. Margot, Serena, and Pilar: 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. Kate: a featured Delta Nu sister - the acedemic of the bunch. Warner Huntington III: 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. Winthrop, Lowell and Pforzheimer: Admissions officers of Harvard Law School who eventually admit Elle into the program after some critical evaluation. Emmet Forrest: Works 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. Law Students: Aaron Schultz, Sundeep Agrawal Padamadan, and Enid Hoopes are three featured law students with acedemic credits that would intimidate anyone. Vivienne Kensington: 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. Whitney: Vivienne's law school friend and partner in mischief when it comes to bringing down Elle. Professor Callahan: The most-feared professor at Harvard Law School. Paulette: A bold character, her self-esteem needs a little boost now and then. Brooke Wyndham: 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. Dewey: Paulette's brash ex-husband who lives in a trailer and holds her dog captive. 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. Kyle: The UPS delivery man who Paulette has her eyes on each time his job brings him to the salon. Salon Employees: Part of Paulette's entourage at the salon who are very adept at the "Bend and Snap." Featured Ensemble: Gaelen, Judge, Jet Blue Pilot, Saleswoman, Store Manager, Prison Guard, Bookish Client and Sabrina are featured roles for young performers who have vibrant personalities.
