    The upcoming school musical “Legally Blonde” auditions were held after school on Thursday, Feb. 1. During auditions, students were required to go through three stations, each testing their ability to dance, sing and act.

    The audition process began with Barbara Brunei, the dance instructor, teaching every candidate the primary dance of Legally Blonde. Once passed, the candidates would advance to see the choir teacher, Stanley Moody put their vocal skills up to the test by singing a song of their choice. The final station consisted of acting, where each candidate was given a fragment of the legally blonde dialogue to act out.  


    The musical will have over 40 roles available, leaving countless opportunities for all candidates to gain a spot. The main thing that the theater department looks for in any candidate is commitment, followed by characterization and eligibility. “Above anything else, we look for people willing to put in the effort to make every rehearsal and to try to be the best version of themselves on stage,” stated Rodrigo Mireles.


    Callbacks were posted on Wednesday, Feb.7. For the callbacks, the theater department picks out a variety of scholars that fit the criteria. During the follow-up, every student was given the same song and script to compete against one another for the few lead roles. This doesn’t mean all other opportunities were shut down.

    “Just because an actor doesn’t get a callback doesn’t mean they’re not in the show. I may very well cast all 50 of the auditioners, but I need to find my lead performers,” Mireles said.
