HAS YOUR POoCH GOT THE STAGE FACTOR?
Blonde The Musical
16th – Saturday 21st April 2018
guys!!! The producers behind
the new tour of the smash-hit Broadway and West End musical Legally
Blonde The Musicalare on the hunt for a four-legged star to take centre stage at
Could your pampered pet or family pooch be
destined for fame? Legally Blonde The
Musical has two dogs in the
cast - a Chihuahua called Bruiser and another called Rufus. Bruiser is already
cast and will be on the road with the cast but producers have decided to hold
auditions for ‘Rufus’ in every town and city on the tour.
Auditions will be held for Sunderland
Empire dates at the theatre on Tuesday 13 February 2018. For more information on the auditions and
to register interest please contact the
producers direct by email firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 31
David Barrett, Associate Director for
Legally Blonde The Musical said: “Legally Blonde The
Musicalis a show all about
stereotypes and not judging a book by its cover and the dogs are no different
in this. So whereas ‘Bruiser’ is the cute, tiny, adorable one, with ‘Rufus’ we
are looking for the total opposite. We are looking for a big, brutish, dog that
only its mother could love - preferably a Bull Dog as in the film but we are
certainly open to options.”
EastEnders’ Rita Simons, Lucie Jones, who represented
the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest last year and Bill Ward (Coronation Street and Emmerdale) star in this all singing, all dancing romantic comedy,
a fun-filled, feel-good pink fest.
College sweetheart and homecoming queen
Elle Woods, doesn’t take no for an answer. When her boyfriend dumps her for
someone more serious, Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books and heads
for Harvard Law School. Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself
never goes out of style.
