TO CHANGE THE WORLD IT TAKES A LITTLE GENIUS!
WINNER! Over 90 international awards,
23 for BEST MUSICAL, including 4 Tony Awards!
Based on the beloved novel by the brilliantly batty Roald Dahl, MATILDA is an extraordinary girl who, armed with a sharp mind and vivid imagination dares to take a stand and change her destiny. She is a genius who is born into a… less brilliant family. Her dad is a car salesman with a few scruples loose. Her mum is an amateur ballroom dancer who values looks over books… not a great match for a girl who reads Dostoevsky in the original Russian. Things only get worse when Matilda’s parents send her to school at the ghastly Crunchem Hall. There she meets the tyrannical head mistress, Miss Trunchbull. Faced with these ridiculously rotten circumstances Matilda bravely decides to take action. With the help of her friends, and her kind-hearted teacher, Miss Honey this miraculous girl inspires a little revolution, proving that everyone has the power to change their story.

UPCOMING AUDITIONS FOR 2021 MAINSTAGE
Roald Dahl’s MATILDA
Saturday, April 24, 2020 at 11:00AM
WHO: We are looking for boys* & girls* (roughly between the ages of 8-12, though physical type will be a bigger factor than actual age) to create our children’s ensemble, including some named characters. The invited kids cast from this audition will enroll in our Kid’s Musical Theater Intensive, a day camp where they will work on the show’s complex music and choreography, mostly with their peer group, occasionally some teens, and our creative team, between the hours of 3pm and 6pm for two weeks ~ June 7-19. After a short dinner break, they will then join the rest of the company at 6:30pm for formal rehearsals, as needed, and continuing nightly leading up to performances July 16-18 at Marjorie Lyons Playhouse. A full schedule will be issued upon casting. There is a $200.00 tuition fee for students under 16. **Adults & Teens who missed our 2020 Auditions, but would like to be considered should contact us via email at StageCenterLA@gmail.com for more information.
WHAT: Click the link to the show page above for the schedule, a complete character breakdown, and below for audition requirements.
WHERE: Stage Center Studios in SoBo, 5300 Barksdale Boulevard, STE D
DETAILS: Children should prepare 16-32 bars (roughly 45 seconds) of a song in the style of the show (contemporary Broadway) or author (Tim Minchin) which most closely aligns with your physical and vocal type. You MAY sing from the show. An accompanist will NOT be provided. Headshot/Resume preferred but not required.
