Curtain Call is thrilled to announce auditions for the final show of the 2012-13 season in The Kweskin Theatre: LEGALLY BLONDE, THE MUSICAL!
With music and lyrics by Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin and book by Heather Hach, the story is based on the novel Legally Blonde by Amanda Brown and the 2001 film of the same name. It tells the story of Elle Woods, a sorority girl who enrolls at Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend Warner. She discovers how her knowledge of the law can help others, and successfully defends exercise queen Brooke Wyndham in a murder trial. The original cast included Laura Bell Bundy as Elle Woods, Christian Borle as Emmett Forrest and Richard H. Blake as Warner.
