Legally Blonde – The Hunt for Rufus

OMG you guys!!!

Legally Blonde The Musical is going on tour and the producers are holding auditions in Killarney to discover a four-legged star for the show!  Dog auditions take place Saturday, February 10th at the Gleneagle Hotel

Could your pampered pet or family pouch be destined for fame?

Producers of a major new tour of the smash-hit Broadway and West End musical Legally Blonde The Musical are on the hunt for four-legged stars in Kerry

 

EastEnders’ Rita Simons and Bill Ward, star of Coronation Street and Emmerdale are the human stars of the show. But Legally Blonde The Musical also 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 are being held at the Gleneagle Hotel on Saturday, February 10th 2018.

Associate Director David Barrett said: “Legally Blonde The Musical is 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.”

Requirements:

– 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

–  the dogs will be required to walk around the room on the lead with their owners, sit on command, give a paw if they can, and if they do tricks we’ll see them (absolutely not essential!)  The dogs will also be rquired to do this walk with the

-Then we will ask the owner to get their pup to respond whilst off the lead. After that we will get a member of the panel to run through the same exercises, just to see how the dog responds to strangers

– The Producers are natrually looking for basic obedience but first and foremost it’s temperament. Shy/nervous/disobedient dogs are not what we’re looking for.

– Previous acting experience is not essential, but obvioulsy would be a huge help
