WHERE WILL THE AUDITIONS BE?
Auditions are held in London.
HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE TO AUDITION?
We will audition children for the role of Matilda who are aged 8 to 12 and under 4ft 3. Her classmates need to be aged 8 to 13 and under 4ft 10” tall with brilliant dancing and singing skills! Boys must have unbroken voices.
WHAT WILL I HAVE TO DO IN THE AUDITION?
You will be asked to bring a short poem or monologue to perform, to sing something and you will be taught a dance from the show.
WHAT IF I LIVE OUTSIDE LONDON?
We need to cast children for all the roles within travelling distance of the theatre so they can live at home and attend their own schools. You need to live within one hour of the theatre so we say within the M25. However, for the roles of Matilda and Bruce only, children can come from anywhere as the RSC can accommodate and teach them in London if necessary. All children must be available for the entire rehearsal and performance period from January to September 2019. No holidays will be allowed during this period and parents must be able to bring their child to all rehearsals and performances.
WHAT IF I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS?
You will find that most questions are answered during the audition process but you can also email Jessica at email@example.com
The RSC is a committed equal opportunities employer with responsible child safeguarding practices in place.
