Legally Blonde has been announced as this year’s seasonal musical. This movie turned musical is projected to be one of the department’s biggest hits.
“The auditions are November 12 and 13. You need to have at least one of the monologues from the audition packet, you can read one or two, and you need to sing at least 30 seconds of a song. It can be any song, Broadway, pop, country, we’ve had all kinds of genres,” theatre teacher Jay Asterman said.
Auditions are open to students willing to put in numerous practice hours into the show.
“You don’t have to be the best singer, you don’t have to be the best dancer, we are looking for people who just come in and are confident in what they do,” Asterman said.
Despite not having the best qualities, being confident in one’s self and one’s actions can make or break an audition.
“I want to audition for Legally Blonde because it is my favorite musical, I plan on going into musical theatre for college so this would be a great help and experience for my college resume. I love to sing and I love to act. This musical is great, it’s a lot of fun. This musical will definitely be bigger and better than previous musicals, maybe not Grease but pretty close to that,” senior Ashton Cleer said.
Legally Blonde is building up a lot of hype across various departments in the school. It is projected to be one of the department’s biggest musicals yet.
“Legally Blonde is going to have a lot of challenges to get through, such as having set pieces that move and the main character Elle Woods singing numerous songs. We plan to tackle it one step at a time like we always do and we hope it will be great,” Asterman said.
