Matilda Auditions

February 29th & March 2nd

Auditions for Matilda: The Musical will be Saturday, February 29th from 10am - 1pm and Monday, March 2nd from 6pm - 8pm.

Audition requirements:

Due to the heavy dance focus and intense musical requirements of this show we will only be auditioning children who will be age 10 the day of the auditions or older. These first auditions will focus on musical abilities. Please come prepared to sing 60 seconds of a song from a musical. If you are interested in a named role you must audition with a song from that characters repertoire.

Please wear comfortable clothing and shoes as you will be learning a short bit of choreography at this audition

All auditionees will be reading assigned sides from the script as well.

We are looking to cast Matilda as an older teen in the 14-18 age range. Possibly could go older if she can appear younger.

All adult roles will be played by adults. We would like to cast Trunchbull as she is cast traditionally on broadway- as a man.

Auditions For "The Case Of Humaity Vs. Pontius Pilate."

December 28 & 29, 2019

For over 2000 years, humanity has placed the blame of the death of Christ upon one man - Roman Governor Pontius Pilate. Now, in the 21'st century, Pilate is finally getting his day in court to prove once and for all that he should not be held responsible for the death of Jesus. This a modern court room drama.

DIRECTED BY - William Freeman

SHOW DATES - April 2 & 3 2020

Second Audition Date - Dec. 29 (5-7 pm) at the Shoals Theatre

Auditions will be a cold reading from the script.
CASTING - 4w, 5m, 7 either

PONTIUS PILATE - (30s) Roman Prefect of Judea. Proud, hot tempered, autocrat, of obstinate disposition. A military man all his life, he is blunt and uncomplicated, with little understanding of compassion, but drawing the respect of his office.

JOSEPH OF ARIMATHEA - (45+) Elder judge of the Jewish Sanhedrin, and a secret follower of Jesus. A just and righteous man, he is willing to consider both sides of a question. Although he speaks well and carries himself surely, he displays a tension that indicates an inner struggle.

ESTHER DAUGHTER OF JOSEPH - (18+) Devoted daughter, shy and innocent with a slightly immature manner.

NICODEMUS - (45+) Elder judge of the Jewish Sanhedrin. He is very smart, folkly, religious, law abiding, not to complicated, and realizes Jesus is the Messiah.

MARY MAGDALENE - (18+) One of Jesus' most faithful and devoted followers. Occupied a position of prominence among the women disciples. She is an intelligent and observant woman, with a serene, soft spoken, but persuasive manner.

SALOME - (40+) Sister of Mary, the mother of Jesus, and wife of Zebedee. One of Jesus' followers, she is outwardly composed, but inwardly turbulent.

ANNAS - (50+) High Priest Emeritus, the power behind the Sanhedrin. Formerly unscrupulous and hard, at the time of the play, he is a broken, bitter, moody, and remorseful man, with little regard for those about him.

CAIAPHAS - (30+) High Priest and son-in-law to Annas, a blustering, strutting, high handed braggart. He is a cunning schemer with no conscious or scruples. He is also a vain clotheshorse. Constantly imagining threats to his position, he is unsure of himself and panics at the slightest trouble.

CLAUDIA PROCULA - (25-40) Pilates wife, has the air of nobility expected from the granddaughter of Caesar. She is cultured, calm, and speaks with a firm conviction, obviously superior in intellect and energy, and reveals occasional glimmers of mischievous amusement.

BAILIFF - (18+)

JUDGE (40+)

COURT REPORTER - (18+) No dialogue.

DEFENSE ATTORNEY - (25+)

PROSECUTING ATTORNEY - (25+)

REPORTER - (18+) (Online news/Vlogger) - Will ad-lib with audience

CAMERAMAN - (18+) (Films reporter)
