This workshop is inspired by our potential upcoming production of Matilda, but student, nor parent need to be auditioning for that upcoming show to participate. These sessions will be a great opportunity to hone audition skills, whether for Matilda or any show!


Participation in this Audition Workshop does NOT guarantee a role in Stageworks Theatre’s Main Stage production of Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical, but it does teach invaluable auditioning skills that can be used in future productions.
