Auditions Galore at Rugby Theatre

Ever dreamt of treading the boards? Rugby Theatre is holding a variety of auditions for its forthcoming shows, including its prestigious Youth Project, which this year will be the romantic comedy Legally Blonde: The Musical. 

Packed full of catchy songs and big dance numbers, Legally Blonde follows fashionista Elle Woods, who enrols at Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend and manages to defy expectations while staying true to her delightfully pink personality.

Taking place over the summer holidays, Rugby Theatre’s Youth Project is open to budding actors, singers and dancers aged between 10 and 21, who put together a high-quality show after just 10 days of rehearsals, guided by a West End director.

Legally Blonde will be the Henry Street venue’s 25th Youth Project, following on from Grease: The Musical last year, which sold out every night. Auditions take place on Sunday 25 February and no previous experience is necessary. For youngsters who don’t want to be on stage, there’s also the opportunity to be involved behind the scenes, in props, scenery, lighting and costume (minimum age for backstage / tech areas is 14).

For adults there are also an array of audition opportunities for productions throughout 2024, starting with the modern classic A Streetcar Named Desire (auditions Sunday 18 February). This is followed by a stage adaption of Thomas Hardy’s Far From The Madding Crowd (auditions Saturday 2 March) and Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s Tell Me On A Sunday, about an English woman who journeys to America looking for love (auditions Saturday 9 March).

For more information see the ‘auditions’ page on Rugby Theatre’s website,

Pre-registering is advised for the Youth Project. No experience is necessary and the theatre is keen to welcome new members. Good luck!
