Matilda Auditions

July 10th - Auditions
July 17th - Callbacks
August 14th - Rehearsals Begin
Performances are October 1st, 2nd, 8th, 9th *

*Performance dates and rehearsal times may be adjusted based on the needs of the cast.  Please let us know about potential conflicts at the time of the audition.

REHEARSALS
There will be a 4 hour rehearsal every Saturday, and two evening rehearsals during the week, precise times are TBD.  For the children, there will be a two week music/dance intensive, 3 days a week, beginning on August 16th.  These times are also TBD based on the needs of the cast members, but will most likely be during the day.  Older kids will not need to attend all of those rehearsals.

COST
For children under 18 years old, there is a $200 participation, which will help offset the costs of the 2 week music/dance intensive.  For a second child from the same household, the fee is reduced to $150. While we normally would not charge adults (especially experienced performers), we have experienced a lot of unexpected expenses over the past year in relation to COVID-19, and ask that adults make a $100 donation to the CTPAC if they are in a position to do so.
