Matilda Jr. Callback Information

Callbacks will be Wednesday, January 12th

Dance callbacks will be held from 3:10 - 4:00pm!

Students called back for a vocal or script reading need to stay the entire time.

Students who are not called back for a vocal or script reading callback may go home when the dance audition is over at approximately 4:00 p.m. 

Congratulations on being called back for a part in Matilda Jr.!

We are so excited to see what you bring to the characters.

Callbacks help the directors see more than your original audition.   Just because you get a callback does not mean you are guaranteed a lead.  Just because you didn't get a callback doesn't mean you aren’t in the show. Callbacks will include a vocal and script reading (audition side) segment(s) for that character.  

A few people were called back for multiple parts.  We understand that it is a lot to ask you to learn in such a short amount of time.   Just do your best!   


Please take time over the next few days to make sure you are 100% prepared for the callback.   

  • Music and dialogue do not need to be memorized.  But, they do need to be PREPARED! You may use the music and sides as a guide.

  • Do research on your character

    • Who are they?   What is their personality?  What can I bring to the character?

  • There are “Guide Vocals” to assist in learning the music.   When you audition, we will be using the “Accompaniment.”   Please make sure you practice with the accompaniment track.

  • All characters should be sung/acted in the appropriate accent. (Do your best.  We don’t expect it to be perfect)

  • This Little Girl, whole song
