Syracuse Stage to hold children's auditions

Syracuse Stage will host general auditions for children ages 8–13 for multiple roles in the 2020/2021 season holiday show, Matilda The Musical, on Friday, April 3, 5:30–7:00 pm, and Saturday, April 4, 9:00 am–2:00 pm, by appointment only, at the Syracuse Stage/SU Drama Complex, 820 E. Genesee St. Callbacks will be held on April 18.

Matilda The Musical is Syracuse Stage's annual holiday production. Co-produced with the Syracuse University Department of Drama, the show celebrates the deliciously twisted sense of fun and the singular genius of the great Roald Dahl. This Tony Award-winner is a captivating treat that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. (Not to mention there's a gloriously vile villain, Miss Trunchbull.) Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs and featuring an unforgettable little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers, Matilda is a delightfully thrilling musical for children and adults alike.
