Watch behind the scenes of the touring Legally Blonde Musical auditions as they search for the perfect bulldog to play Rufus in their Woking performances 🐶🎭
The touring Legally Blonde Musical came to Woking in October and producers are on the look out for their Rufus, a British Bulldog!
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. 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 it’s mother could love – preferably a Bulldog as in the film, but we are certainly open to options.”
Rufus will star alongside Bruiser, the Chihuahua in the production.
A British Bulldog: The team are looking for a British Bulldog as appeared in the film. They are open to other breeds, but they need to have that look about them, fairly bullish and robust. Cute and fluffy is not what they're looking for here I’m afraid.
Temperament: If your dog is relaxed, laid back, good with people and enjoys a good fuss, they would love to hear from you.
Responsive to Commands: Does your dog respond to ‘come here’, ‘sit’ etc and doesn’t just wander off doing its own thing? ‘Rufus’ isn't expected to perform tricks.
Tricks: Having said they do not expect tricks, if they can do any we would love to see them. They have 5 minutes to show off!
Experience: Although absolutely not essential, if your dog has some form of stage experience it will be a huge bonus.
