SECOND Auditions for MATILDA!

The North Canton Playhouse is looking to cast 6 male actors/dancers age 16-adult and 2 age 10-14 for Matilda the Musical. The 16-adult ages would possibly play multiple roles.

We also need some very specific single role characters as well:

  • Mr. Wormwood and the Doctor/ Escapologist – LOW commitment to rehearsals; these roles sing but there is little or no dancing required.
  • Rudolpho… dancer and vocals!
  • All other roles/multiple roles have heavy choreo so a full commitment to rehearsal dates is required.

Show dates are August 8-11 and will be performed at the Hoover HS auditorium (Hoover Hall).

Auditions will be held on Sunday May 19 at 6:30 at NCP’s Youth Theatre location at 1210 South Main Street in North Canton.

Please prepare 32 bars of a musical theatre song in the style of the show that best shows your vocal ability. A speaker will be available to connect your music device. No accompanist.

Please email Delorna to sign up for an audition.
