LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Derby Dinner Playhouse wants to make two local dogs famous.

Local dogs and their owners auditioned for Derby Dinner Playhouse's "Legally Blonde: The Musical" on Saturday.

The company is looking for a Chihuahua and a Bulldog to play "Bruiser" and "Rufus" in the upcoming performances.

The dogs must love people, and "Bruiser" needs be comfortable being carried in a purse.

"It sorta depends on the 'aww' factor," associate producer Lee Buckholez said. "You know, when I see them, does it give me warm fuzzies. Then that's probably the one I'm gonna go with."

Legally Blonde runs from April 6 through May 15 at Derby Dinner Playhouse.
