So swift is the action, so involved the situations, so rib-tickling the plot in this London hit that at its finish audiences are left as exhausted from laughter as though they had run a foot race. Galloping in and out of the four doors of an English vicarage are an American actor and actress (he is now stationed with the Air Force in England), a cockney maid who has seen too many American movies, an old maid who “touches alcohol for the first time in her life,” four men in clergyman suits presenting the problem of which is which (for disguised as one is an escaped prisoner), and a sedate Bishop aghast at all these goings-on and the trumped up stories they tell him.

Questions? Email info@30byNinety.com with the subject: Matilda Auditions


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!

ROLES AVAILABLE

CHILDREN’S ROLES:
Matilda Wormwood: [Female, 7-12 years old]
* An intelligent and charming little girl. Matilda loves to read and to get into mischief (only when she must!). She has a warm and bright presence with anyone that she meets, and wants to have a family who loves her and treats her as warmly as she treats others.


Bruce Bogtrotter: [Male, 8-13 years old]
* A stout young man who enjoys chocolate cake a bit more than he should. Bruce is a symbol of hope for his classmates as he bests the Trunchbull at her own games.


Lavendar: [Female, 7-13 years old]
* Matilda’s BEST friend, a spunky and lively child. Her feisty personality gets her into all sorts of mischief, and she is not afraid to tell you all about it.


Michael Wormwood: [Male, 8-15 years old]
* Matilda’s brother and prodigal son of his father Mr. Wormwood. Michael is more akin to watching TV than to reading a book, and follows in his father’s footsteps. He is a bit dimwitted and delivers comedy in one-liners.


Ensemble: [Any Gender, 8-13 years old]
* Aside from the roles listed above, we will be in need of 3-6 additional boys and girls to play as Matilda’s classmates, and other children throughout the show!

ADULT ROLES:
Ms. Honey: [Female, 20+ years old]
* Mrs. Honey is Matilda’s school teacher. A warm and loving woman in a world that is not quite so warm. Ms. Honey’s heart if full of childlike wonder and joy. She and Matilda also bond over their love of books.


The Trunchbull: [Any Gender, 30+ years old]
* The headmistress of the children’s school that Matilda attends. The Trunchbull’s motto is “children are maggots!”. Equal parts campy ridiculousness, and terrifyingly strong, the Trunchbull is the main antagonist of the show.


Mrs. Wormwood: [Female, 30+ years old]
* Matilda’s mother. More concerned with looks than books, she couldn’t care less about her daughter Matilda. A bombastic and over the top woman who wants to finally win a dance competition!


Mr. Wormwood: [Male, 30+ years old]
* Matilda’s father. A used car salesman with a silver tongue (or so he thinks). A bit dimwitted and less focused on truth, and more focused on the bottom line. Mr. Wormwood has a strong bond with his son Michael, who does basically anything he is told to do.


Ensemble: [Any Gender, 20+ years old]
* We will have a need for an additional 6-8 adults for our ensemble. Some of these roles may be vocally intensive, dance intensive, or both. The adult ensemble will play the parents of children, acrobats, escapologists, dance partners, and many other roles!
