Updated Rehearsal Schedule

posted Dec 2, 2019, 6:37 PM by Mark Eberhard   [ updated Dec 2, 2019, 6:40 PM ]

Below is an updated rehearsal schedule for Matilda - unfortunately we a bit behind our normal schedule and it has become condensed - thus most cast members will need to meet 3-4 times a week in December and 4-5 days a week in January - all of this will be discussed and explained at an IMPORTANT PARENT MEETING on Thursday, December 05 at 6:30 PM in SCHS cafeteria!

The schedule below may appear overwhelming, but after walking through everything at the parent meeting you will be better equipped to decide if its too much of time commitment or not - again thanks for your patience and flexibility as we explore how to make our process more friendly for younger students!

For the DECEMBER rehearsals, I place 4-8 in blue next to the rehearsals our younger students need to attend. If your student was assigned a named character it may require a bit more time.

available at www.saintstheatre.com 


LINK TO THE FORM IS BELOW





AUDITION NOTES FOR GRADES 4-8 

  • For the majority of 4-8 graders, they need to prepare 90 Seconds of any Broadway song  of their choice, chose something to show off your voice and personality 

  • They do NOT have to memorize it - they may have the lyrics and/or music with them 

  • The only EXCEPTION is the character MATILDA - needs to practice and be familiar with both Naughty and Quiet -- all other adult characters will be portrayed by high school students

  • Our audition is meant to be informal and very low pressure; keeping anxiety or stress as low as possible

  • We are an educational theatre which emphasizes teaching and learning; while we create strong performances - THUS No one is expecting perfection!

  • Please encourage your daughter or son to relax and enjoy the process and journey!

  • This is our first time to actively work with the younger age groups, so I apologize if we have created any stress - that certainly is not the intent!  There may be a few hiccups along the way ...


Audition Packet for Matilda the Musical

posted Nov 17, 2019, 5:48 PM by Mark Eberhard

WHO MAY AUDITION?
  • Students that live in the East China School District or attend East China Schools using schools of choice
  • Students that attend SCHS or will be attending SCHS in the future will be given preference
  • Students currently enrolled in Grade 4 or higher will be eligible to audition
  • PLEASE understand we will most likely NOT be able to offer all that audition a role in the show
THE ROLE OF MATILDA 
  • We will audition and consider females ages 10 to 18 for the character of Matilda
  • Physically it  is important for the telling of the story that Matilda be of small stature 
  • We will most likely cast 2 or 3 different Matildas and share the role; this is so one young female does not have to carry all 6 performances - which we feel would feel is irresponsible if it is a young girl of 10-13 years of age
