Audition Info

Auditions for Matilda the Musical are now completed and closed.

You must complete the AUDITION FORM prior to your audition date. (Registrations will open on Wednesday, June 1.)

There are a limited number of opportunities to participate in Drama Camp. Participation will be on a first-come, first-served basis of completed Audition Forms.

Choose one audition block (July 9, 10, or 11). Arrive early. Remember that your audition begins the moment you enter the facility. Be respectful, professional, and encouraging to your fellow performers. Important information will be given at the start of each audition block.

There will not be callbacks. You will be cast based on your sole audition.

Come prepared to perform 30-60 seconds of a song from a Broadway musical (other than Matilda). You will perform acapella (a musician will be available to provide you with a starting note if needed.) Select a song that demonstrates your vocal range and skill, and which will allow you to express character and development.

Wear comfortable clothes and closed-toe shoes (no sandals or flip-flops). Be prepared to dance.

Bring a water bottle.
