The Missoula Community Theatre will hold an open audition for the high-energy, uniquely-humorous Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical on Sunday, February 23 from 12:00-6:00 PM. Please use the Main Street entrance and go to the third floor. Callbacks will be held that same evening. Children, 8-14 years of age, should plan to audition from 12:00-3:00 PM. Those 15 and older will audition from 3:00-6:00 PM. Families (with children and adults auditioning) may audition between 3:00-4:00 PM. Director Michael McGill is planning to cast 9-12 younger children and 9-12 older children, who may also play adult ensemble roles. He will also cast 4 women and 5 men in adult roles. Some of the roles to be cast are the imaginative Matilda; Miss Honey, her gentle schoolteacher and champion; the tyrannical, physically-agile headmistress Miss Trunchbull; the Wormwoods, Matilda’s uncaring but comical family; and Matilda’s classmates, Lavender and Bruce. No advance preparation is required to audition. McGill is looking for strong singers, dancers, actors with comedic skills, and children with gymnastics abilities. Latin dancing skills are needed for some of the characters. McGill notes that most roles in Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical require solid belting voices. A few characters will take on a Russian or British accent. McGill expects that rehearsals will be weeknights from 7:00-10:30 PM. Younger cast members may have rehearsals 4:00-6:00 PM, Those auditioning should note that Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical has a three-week run, with performances April 23-May 10, 2020. **For questions regarding auditions, or to inquire about a perusal script, please call MCT at 728-PLAY(7529) Monday-Friday between 9AM and 5PM.
