All performers who will be auditioning for Matilda the Musical are required to perform dance choreography as part of their audition.

The process will be as follows:

  1. On Sunday, November 14th, the dance choreography video will be posted on this page.

  2. In the days prior to auditions, you need to learn this choreography and be ready to perform.

  3. On the day of auditions, at the start of your audition time-slot, you and everyone in your time-slot will be invited into the auditorium to perform this choreography together.

  4. Once this is complete, you will each be invited in individually to perform your monologue and song.
