Join the REVOLT!

Rebellion is nigh in Matilda JR., a gleefully witty ode to the the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination! This is the story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the children she inspires. Join with Not Just Dance next year and root for the “revolting children” who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson.

Matilda has astonishing wit, intelligence… and special powers! She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for 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 and catchy songs, Matilda JR. is a joyous girl power romp.

Saturdays, 1 pm – 4 pm

Please see below about additional dates and extended times as we get closer to the actual performances. Please make sure both the scheduled performance dates and the snow makeup dates are available dates for your students before registering

Auditions

Aug. 17, 18, 19; Call Backs, if necessary, and by invitation only, Aug. 22nd.

See below for more information on auditioning and for cast descriptions.

Note: This is an advanced class. As such, an audition is required for participation. We highly recommend that students enroll in a “back up” class in case they are not cast. See below for information about casting decisions. Also, if registering for more than one performance based theatre class, be sure to let us know if one is a backup or if the student intends to do “both” if cast in the advanced class. Students may also audition, at the same time, for BOTH advanced performance based classes. Again, let us know if the student is more interested in one over the other and if they are interested in doing both if cast in both.

Tuition

See Tuition Rates. The first monthly tuition payment will be charged on Aug. 1 or the date of registration (whichever comes first). Those accepted into the program will continue to be charged a monthly tuition amount through Jan, 2021. Please note that this class has a dance requirement. All students must be registered in dance or show proof of taking dance at another studio by Sept. 1st. If neither of those have happened, students will be automatically enrolled in a dance class that has openings and parents will be charged for the dance class along with the tuition for the Advanced Musical Theatre class. See the Tuition Rates page for examples.

Those not accepted into the program will be refunded any specific tuition paid towards the Advanced Musical Theatre class (only). Adjustments will be made to month tuition based on other registrations.

Requirements

This is an advanced class for students serious about musical theatre. The class has a dance requirement (see information under Tuition above). In addition, we expect students to be enrolled in choir at school or taking private voice lessons.

Fees

A registration fee will be assessed at the time of registration. A performance fee will be assessed on Oct. 1, 2020. This fee includes a performance t-shirt, DVD, 2 tickets and costume cleaning/rental fees. Note: Sibling registration and performance fees are discounted. See Tuition page for details.
