Starlight Searches For Kansas City's Bruiser Woods To Star In LEGALLY BLONDE The Musical

Legally Blonde The Musical will play July 7 - 13 as part of the 2023 AdventHealth Broadway Series.


Starlight recently completed auditions for the upcoming production of Legally Blonde The Musical, playing at the historic theatre July 7 - 13. But producers still need to fill one role and are looking locally to cast that furry friend. Bruiser Woods is a Chihuahua or Chihuahua mix and lead Elle Woods' canine companion.

"Legally Blonde is an upbeat, fast-paced musical, and Bruiser is an adorable addition to the cast," Caroline Gibel, Starlight's Director of Programming, said. "Kansas City is a dog-loving town, and I can't wait to see all of the submissions from hopeful pooches. I know the right dog is out there!"

The ideal Bruiser must have a laid-back, relaxed disposition, as he or she will appear on stage each night with bright lights, music, and an excited audience watching. The dog should be friendly with other dogs and people and be comfortable being picked up, carried, and placed in and out of a handbag. The dog should be aware and responsive to commands, and the owner should be available for all rehearsals and shows.

Interested pet parents should film a short video of their dog's best tricks and personality and then post the video on social media. Tag @kcstarlight to enter by April 9, 2023. For more information, visit Click Here.

Legally Blonde The Musical at Starlight will be directed and choreographed by Broadway veteran Nikki Snelson, who originated the role of Brooke Wyndham in the original 2007 Broadway production.

A fabulously fun award-winning musical based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde The Musical follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. Action-packed and exploding with memorable songs and dynamic dances - this musical is so much fun, it should be illegal!

Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner dumps her so he can attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle ingeniously charms her way into the prestigious law school. While there, she struggles with peers, professors, and her ex. With the support of some new friends, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.

Review: Cirque du Soleil's CORTEO At T-Mobile Center

If, by chance, you are still looking for something fun to do with your visitors this holiday weekend, I highly recommend Cirque du Soleil’s incredible “Corteo” now playing at the T-Mobile Center. This is family entertainment of the first order; unlike almost anything you will ever have witnessed. It will re-awaken your childhood dream of “running off to join the circus.”

Review: TOOTSIE at Starlight Theatre

TOOTSIE (The Musical), is a fun opening evening for the seventy-first season of Starlight Theatre at Swope Park across from the Kansas City Zoo. Tootsie (The Film) was so good it is preserved it on the United States National Film Registry. Add the sea-change in attitudes surrounding same-sex relationships and this show is set up to be a very tough sell. Remarkably, TOOTSIE (The Musical) absolutely works.
