  • Digital Auditions

    Digital auditions for Matilda will consist of a vocal submission in video form as well as a dance submission video. There will be no monologue required for the digital audition.

    Vocal Submission

    Please prepare 16-32 bars of a vocal selection in the style of the show. Please DO NOT choose a song from the show. Be sure your selection shows off both your vocal ability in the range you are comfortable in and your storytelling abilities. Be sure the vocals can be heard clearly above any recorded or live accompaniment. The vocal audition must be recorded live. We do not want old choir concerts or show performance recordings submitted. DO NOT exceed a 1 minute recording for your vocal audition submission.

    Dance Submission

    Please submit a recording of you performing the dance steps provided in the dance step tutorial found below. Be sure to be dressed appropriately and have plenty of room to perform the steps. The recording should give us a full view of the person performing the steps. Please be aware, we are looking for a group of experienced dancers to cast as well as ensemble members who will be performing less intense dance steps. Don’t be discouraged to audition if you are not a dancer. The purpose of this dance audition is to see your general ability to move. If every step is not exactly correct, that’s OK. Please just do your best and have fun with it!
