Things To Know About This Production

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!

What To Expect At Auditions

Welcome to auditions for CSA's production of "Matilda"!

Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for auditions.

Attire is professional, but comfortable enough to move in (especially in regards to footwear).

Auditions/Callbacks for Matilda are scheduled as follows:

  • Auditions - Mon., August 3rd, 5-9 PM
  • Callbacks - Thurs., August 6th, 5-9 PM
  • Please note: younger students are occasionally released earlier in the evening. Announcements/updates to Audition/Callback times will be made via Remind and Facebook.

Script sides will be available at CSA for student use, and in pdf form on the CSA Theatre compANY Facebook Group. Students are welcome to bring their own copy of the audition sides, if they so choose.

It is not required that script sides be memorized, but if you have not read the audition materials beforehand, you may not give your best possible audition. Be prepared!

*Please note: everyone at auditions will be given the opportunity to read for a part(s); however, due to time constraints we cannot guarantee auditionees will read for every part they are interested in. Auditionees will be asked to read parts at the discretion of the Directors.

Casting will be announced a few days after callbacks via Cast98 and Facebook.
