IS YOUR dog destined for stardom?

Could your pampered pet or family pooch be destined for fame? Producers of a major new tour of the smash-hit Broadway and West End musical Legally Blonde The Musical are coming to Rhyl to hold auditions for a star-dog!

EastEnders’ Rita Simons; Lucie Jones, who represented the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest with Never Give Up On You; 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.

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 bulldog as in the film, but we are certainly open to options.”

Legally Blonde The Musical is an all singing, all dancing romantic comedy, a fun-filled, feel-good pink fest.

College sweetheart and homecoming queen Elle Woods doesn’t take no for an answer. When her boyfriend dumps her for someone more serious, Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books and heads for Harvard Law School.

Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style.

Based on the Reese Witherspoon film, Legally Blonde The Musical earned seven Tony nominations and 10 Drama Desk Award nominations during its Broadway run.

Auditions for the role of Rufus will be will be held on July 12.

Performances of the show will be held from Tuesday, October 24 to Saturday, October 28.
