You belong on stage – audition for the Hi-Liners Musical Theater’s ‘Matilda JR.’ this Thursday, Jan. 20, 2022.

Rebellion is nigh in Road Dahl’s Matilda JR., a gleefully witty ode to the the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination! This story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the children she inspires will have audiences rooting for the “revolting children” who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson.

Here’s more info:

Audition Date: Thursday, Jan. 20 (online) – you will be given a 1 hour time slot and audition link after you register.

Audition Requirements
Young or inexperienced performers should prepare a song they know very well, like Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, without accompaniment. More experienced performers can prepare 16-32 bars from a broadway musicals. All songs will be sung a cappella.

Photo: You will need to upload a picture in order to complete this registration. A current picture taken on a cellphone with a plain background and nothing obstructing the face is acceptable. Important Tip: The purpose of the photo is to help us remember you, so please do not provide photos of you wearing a hat, holding a pet, soaking wet, or with any portion of your face covered by sunglasses/goggles/facepaint/masks/etc. The person auditioning should be the only person in the photo. “Recognizable” is absolutely more important than “cute,” and being able to see your whole face is important. Also, make sure that it is a current picture, and not one from several years ago. A current school photo is a great example.

Resume: A resume is optional.
