AUDITION REQUIREMENTS
Please prepare one (1) minute of a standard musical theatre song and bring an alternate selection as a backup (in some cases, the casting team may wish to hear more). Do not sing a song from the show. Do not sing a cappella. Bring sheet music in your key; an accompanist will be provided. A CD or music device with an accompaniment-only track is also acceptable, provided it is edited and cued correctly, and saved locally (please no YouTube recordings or anything that relies on a wireless signal). Although not all roles require dance, a short dance routine will be taught at the initial audition in order to assess ability; please bring dance shoes if you have them. 

When auditioning, please list any and all commitments during the rehearsal period – even on days not currently listed as rehearsal days, as the schedule will be built around the cast’s availability. No additional conflicts will be accepted after casting, and no conflicts will be accepted for performance dates or the week before opening. The only way we would consider performance conflicts would be if we were to double-cast a role; this is not currently the intent, but it is not impossible. Please just be upfront with us, and we will afford you the same courtesy.

This is an “open call” audition. Non-Equity, NO PAY.
Bring a performing resume if you have one (not required).

Post-audition feedback will not be given.

SPECIAL AUDITION REQUIREMENT
All cast and crew must be vaccinated for COVID-19. Proof of vaccination status must be presented at audition.
Those under 12 may submit a video audition to casting@highstreetartscenter.com AND fill out the PRE-REGISTRATION: https://bit.ly/MatildaReg They will still need to be vaccinated within the CDC/FDA guidelines, as soon as the vaccine is approved for 5-11. If a cast member does not remain within guidelines, we will replace and recast that role.


REHEARSAL SCHEDULE
November 15, 2021 through January 27, 2021
7:00 – 10:00pm, Monday through Thursday
Morning/early afternoon on most Saturdays; we will end no later than 5:00pm on those days
Occasional Friday evenings as needed, based on availability

PLEASE NOTE:
There will be no specified end time during tech week – it will depend on the run time of the show.
Youth actors will need to stay the full length of rehearsal whenever required. We will always make every effort to get them out early, but due to the size of the roles, we cannot guarantee it.

NOTE: The end time is highly approximate; generally, it may be earlier in the beginning and last longer as we get closer to opening. We are very respectful of everyone’s time.

Plot Summary
Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning ROALD DAHL’S MATILDA THE MUSICAL is a captivating masterpiece that revels in the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination. Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence… and psychokinetic powers! She is unloved by her cruel parents, but impresses her schoolteacher, Miss Honey, who begins to recognize and appreciate Matilda’s extraordinary personality over the course of her first term at school. School life isn’t smooth sailing for young Matilda, though – the school’s headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, despises children and absolutely loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils’ saving grace! Packed with high-energy dance numbers and catchy songs, Matilda is a joyous power romp for children and adults alike. ~ RATED PG
