Description:

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical is the captivating masterpiece that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life.
Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just 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!

Show Notes:

  • CYT students ages 8-18 who are currently enrolled in a class may audition for this show. 
  • An online audition form will be emailed to all students enrolled in a CYT class that selected to participate in auditions. The form will require a bio photo upload, music track upload, and costume measurements in addition to other information. 
  • If you are interested in auditioning for either Winter 2022 show, it doesn't matter which show you choose an audition slot under. Please choose only 1 audition slot. You will signify on your audition form you would like to be considered for either show.  
  • All auditioning must attend a Vocal Audition and Dance Audition (these are held on 2 separate days). 
  • Some who audition may also be requested to attend a Callback (on the same day as the Dance Audition). 

VOCAL AUDITIONSHeld on Friday, Nov. 19 starting at 4:00. Location: Oak Hills Church 1100 Blue Ravine Rd, Folsom. Please choose a track with no accompanying vocals (such as a karaoke track). Audition music should be no more than 1 minute. Auditions should be to music (not acapella). The director needs to see how well the student can stay with the music, both in tune and in rhythm. You will be able to upload your music to the audition form. It's best if you have a YouTube link or an actual song file rather than getting a song through iTunes, Spotify or Amazon. We cannot open files through these services.

DANCE AUDITIONSHeld on Saturday, Nov. 20 at 9:00am. Location: Oak Hills Church 1100 Blue Ravine Rd, Folsom. All students who audition must attend the dance audition. Students will be taught a dance(s) from the show, and then be asked to perform it for the directors. Parents are welcome to stay and watch the dance audition. Approximate end time is 11:00 am.

CALLBACKS: Held on Saturday, Nov. 20 immediately following the Dance Audition at the same location. CYT callbacks are closed to everyone except the show directors. The directors will call back certain students to sing again, read a scene, dance some more or any combination of these. They will often ask pairs or groups of students to read scenes to see how different combinations of sizes and personalities work together. 
Just because a student is not "called back" does not mean that they will not be cast in the show.

NOTES
  • Actors will NOT use a British accent for this show. 
  • Students who audition are NOT eligible for a class tuition refund regardless of casting. 
  • All students cast in the show will be charged a production fee of $175.
  • Families are required to volunteer 20+ hours on a parent team.
