Calling all young artists age 10-18! Last chance to audition for youth theater production of Matilda

For younger artists, Dr. Phillips Center's Youth Theater offers the chance to be part of full-scale pre-professional productions here in Orlando.

Dr. Phillips Center's Youth Theater

Calling all young artists ages 10-18! Audition now through October 27 for our youth theater production of Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical.

Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher Miss Honey. During her first term at school, the two forge a bond as Miss Honey begins to recognize and appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves to punish 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!

Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs and an unforgettable star turn for a young actress, Matilda is a joyous girl power romp. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.
