Canberra Philharmonic Society
A fabulously funny award winning musical based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde The Musical, follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. The show is action packed and explodes with memorable songs and dynamic dances – this musical is so much fun it should be Illegal!!
Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner dumps her so he can attend Harvard Law School. Determined to get her back, Elle ingeniously charms her way into the prestigious law school. While there, she struggles with peers, professors and her Ex. With the support of some friends, though, Elle quickly realises her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.
Legally Blonde The Musical features many lead and supporting roles both Male and Female, both singing and non-singing. There is a large all singing and dancing ensemble that also play many cameo role as listed below.
This will be a high energy, exciting and fun show.
PLEASE INCLUDE A RECENT HEADSHOT IN YOUR AUDITION BOOKING REQUEST
Auditions will take place in 2 parts. The first section will involve your group learning a small prepared choreographed routine. Please wear something comfortable that you can move in.
This is to be followed by you singing your selected song for the panel. The panel will evaluate your song selection on what we hear. We know what we are looking for, so don't be concerned if you are not required to sing an entire song. Auditionees for Lead roles will then do their prepared script for the role they are auditioning for.
AUDITION REQUIREMENTS (additional information can be found in the Audition pack on our website www.philo.org.au/auditions)
Singing - Auditionees should prepare two contrasting songs (not from Legally Blonde) for their audition for Principal Roles, and one song for Ensemble. The songs should be from a musical and in a style that is consistent with the character that you are auditioning for. This should be something that you are very comfortable with, not something you learned the day before!
Acting - If you are auditioning for a Principal role, you should also prepare the section of script set out for that character. Once you have booked a time and nominated the character/characters you wish to audition for, the script will be emailed to you.
Dancing - There is a lot of dance/movement in Legally Blonde and everyone will be required to do a mvoement auditiion, this will be done in groups, so please wear something appropriate.
WHAT TO BRING
Please bring sheet music (in the correct key). There will be an accompanist at the audition; however you may bring your own accompanist if you wish. Backing CDs are acceptable as long as they are exactly that.... a backing CD. Please be aware that you may not get to sing all of your song. We are expecting large numbers of people to audition, so if the Audition Panel feels that they have heard enough to determine your vocal quality they may stop you mid note. This should not be taken as any indicator of whether you will or will not be cast!
