Join the Monmouth Community Players MCPKids Fall production of Matilda Jr. Produced with permission from Music Theatre International Inc.
Rebellion is nigh in 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.
Matilda has astonishing wit, intelligence... and special powers! She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. 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!
Matilda Jr. is open to students ages 8-16. Rehearsals will be Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6pm-8pm in the Monmouth/Winthrop area, location TBD (hopefully Monmouth Memorial School).
Auditions will be Thursday September 15th from 6-8:30pm. The location will be emailed to all participants before auditions. Auditions will include a short song 1-2 minutes tops, a short choreography combination (so wear comfy clothes) and a group reading audition. Please bring a music track to sing along to.
There will be 4 performances the weekend of December 9-11, 2022; a Friday evening show at 7pm, Saturday shows at 2pm and 7pm, and a Sunday show at 2pm. A full rehearsal schedule will be provided at the first rehearsal after auditions. During our tech week, December 5-8, we will rehearse each evening from 6pm-9pm. Please bring a list of any conflict dates with you to auditions.
Our production team includes Mary Melquist and Danny Gay as Co-Directors, Amy Griswold as Assistant Director, Hannah Hanson as Music Director, Julie and Valerie Sanborn as Co-Choreographers, and Emily Kalafarski as Producer.
