Please note that this list is not comprehensive, as there are numerous supporting roles & speaking ensemble roles.

ELLE WOODS Gb3-G5 Soprano Belt-  Elle is a sorority girl who follows her ex-boyfriend to Harvard Law School and realizes that she has more than just a pretty face and a bubbly personality to offer the world! She is lovable, determined, vulnerable, energetic and outgoing! A true triple threat, tap dance skills are a plus. Must be comfortable with dogs and kissing on stage.

EMMETT FORREST B2-A4 Tenor-  Emmett is a smart, quirky, sensitive and personable law student. He ends up taking Elle under his wing and believes in her when it seems that no one else does. Must be comfortable with dogs. A strong singer/actor with great comedic timing!

PAULETTE BUONOFUONTE A3-A5 Soprano Belt-  Paulette is the funny owner of Hair Affair, a local salon. She becomes friends with Elle and longs to marry a man from Ireland. She and Elle help each other achieve their dreams! Must be comfortable with dogs. Ability to do a Bostonian accent is a plus, a strong singer with a powerful belt to match the personality!

PILAR, MARGOT & SERENA G#3-F5 Belt-  Pilar is the sassy and sensible sorority sister. Margot is the seemingly dim-witted, boy-crazy sorority sister. Serena is the energetic cheerleader sorority sister. Margot, Serena, & Pilar are Elle’s entourage who follow her through the story acting as her “Greek Chorus”. Strong singers and dancers with good comic timing and youthful energy!

PROFESSOR CALLAHAN A2-F#4 Baritone-   Callahan is a pompous and manipulative law professor at Harvard. Callahan should be charismatic but able to turn instantly into a conniving shark at the turn of a hat.

WARNER HUNTINGTON III Eb3-Ab4 Tenor-  Warner is attractive and charming but very self-absorbed. He will do whatever it takes to achieve his dream of becoming a senator, including breaking Elle’s heart. Actor must be very comfortable on stage to best display the character’s charisma!

VIVIENNE KENSINGTON Ab A3- 5 HUGE Soprano Belt-  Vivienne is an overachieving, stuck-up, wealthy, smart and savvy law student who is intellectually driven. Yet she feels very threatened by Elle’s presence at Harvard.

BROOKE WYNDHAM A3-G5 Alto or Soprano-  Brooke is an exercise video star and former Delta Nu sorority girl who was accused of murder. Being physically fit is a must for this role, to properly do high level aerobics with enough stamina to continue singing.

KYLE B. O’BOYLE-  No singing required Kyle is a physically fit, smooth-talking UPS deliveryman. We soon find out that he is Paulette’s dream guy. Must be comfortable with dogs. Irish dancing skills are a plus!

ENID HOOPS G3-G5 Soprano Belt-  Enid is a strong, opinionated, feminist law student at Harvard. Great comedic timing!
