Bruiser Woods

Fans of Reese Witherspoon’s 2001 hit movie “Legally Blonde,” and the subsequent Broadway musical version, know one thing for sure.

Heroine Elle Woods, the fashion major and sorority queen who enrolls in Harvard Law School to get her boyfriend back, would never go anywhere without her pet Chihuahua, Bruiser Woods.

And of course, they’d both be dressed in the latest fashions.

To celebrate the opening of its production of “Legally Blonde: The Musical” on Friday, April 19, the Santa Rosa Junior College Theatre Arts Department is putting on a Chihuahua Costume Contest.

Bring your own costumed (and leashed) version of Bruiser to the Quad near Bertolini Student Center on the college campus, 1501 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa, at noon Tuesday, April 16.

The contest is free and everyone is welcome. The owner of winning entry gets four tickets to the production.

The show will run through May 5 in Burbank Auditorium on campus.

Tickets cost $10-$18.
