The Empress Theatre is pleased to announce auditions for
“Legally Blonde” and “Heathers”
Legally Blonde and Heathers will audition simultaneously.
Legally Blonde is a musical retelling of the movie by the same name. Elle Woods is an aspiring Fashion Designer until her life gets flip turned upside down. Broken-hearted and depressed she moves to Boston in a last-ditch attempt to prove to Warner she’s what he wants. Finding the courage along the way to step into her full abilities, this story empowers women everywhere to find strength within themselves.
Heathers is based on the classic 1989 film. Westerberg High is ruled by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing junta: Heather, Heather, and Heather, the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio. But misfit Veronica Sawyer rejects their evil regime for a new boyfriend, the dark and sexy stranger J.D., who plans to put the Heathers in their place – six feet under.
