Auditions for Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical JR. will take place March 2 and 3, 2023. You may sign in from 5-6:30 p.m.
Auditions will take place at TCT's building at 601 Energy Center Blvd, Northport, AL 35473.
We ask that you prepare a 16-32 measure song (approximately one minute in length) and a memorized monologue of up to one minute. Both of these should be in the style of the show you are auditioning for. Sheet music, CD or music saved on your phone (no streaming) is highly recommended. A cappella (no accompaniment) is not recommended. Make sure that both the song and monologue you choose are age appropriate. If you are interested in a particular character from the show, choose material that is similar to the behavior or characteristics of that character. For the purposes of Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical JR, monologues utilizing a British dialect are welcome but not required.
You will be expected to perform a song and a monologue. A short dance audition will follow. Comfortable clothes and close-toed shoes (tennis shoes or jazz shoes) are recommended for the dance portion.
Being nervous is natural, but we hope to alleviate those nerves with our upbeat atmosphere and opportunities to attend mock auditions. Remember, we are all here to have fun. Come into the audition room with confidence and a smile on your face. Show the judges you are comfortable being in front of people, and you will rock that audition!
Behavior is noted right when you step into the audition room so make sure you respect both the production team and your fellow audition group members. It is important that you stay quiet when others are auditioning so they aren't distracted or prevented from performing their material. This will make the audition process run as smoothly as possible.
Callbacks are essentially another audition where you are asked to read or sing for specific characters from the show. They typically are held the day following the second night of auditions. If you are needed at callbacks for the show you auditioned for, you will be notified by a phone call from the production stage manager or other production team member.
Don't be discouraged. If you don't receive a callback after your audition, that doesn't mean you are not cast in the show. Casting is like piecing together a puzzle, and callbacks are utilized to make sure that puzzle is put together just right!
Please print and fill out four copies of the audition form provided below to bring to the audition.
Please review the TCT Handbook. Additional instructions will be provided after casting.
