CK's Matilda the Musical JR. Production Camp (3-Week Camp)

Rebellion is nigh in Matilda JR., a gleefully witty ode to the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination! This story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the children she inspires will have audiences rooting for the "revolting children" who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson. Packed with high-energy dance numbers and catchy songs, Matilda JR. is a joyous girl-power romp.

CreativeKids production camps require actors to audition so that specific parts are already assigned before we begin our camp rehearsals. Actors must be available for all performances in order to participate in a production camp.

Auditions for all CreativeKids shows: (please note corrected dates)
Saturday, May 21, 11 am-1 pm OR Sunday, May 22, 1-3 pm
Auditions held in the Thompson-Jones Library on campus (building with the clock tower)

Show Dates:
Friday, July 22, 7 pm
Saturday, July 23, 7 pm
Sunday, July 24, 2 pm

A typical audition includes reading from the script and singing a portion of a song from the musical which will be taught and rehearsed during the audition. Auditions may include an improvisational theatre game to see how well the actors interact with one another. Our goal at CreativeKids is to make the audition process non-intimidating and fun! All parents will receive an email with a cast list for the production. Once cast, parents are asked to enroll their child in camp within two weeks to ensure their child’s part in the production. We encourage students to understand that the number of lines given to an actor in no way indicates their importance in a play.

At CreativeKids, we pride ourselves on highlighting the unique talents of every actor and producing plays where all actors experience significant stage time. Production camps take what would normally happen over 6 to 10 weeks at a theatre and condense it into 3 weeks of high-energy fun! Actors will learn warm-ups, play theatre games to accomplish various acting techniques, study the script extensively, and receive blocking and coaching from the director. Theatre encourages self-confidence, critical thinking skills and cooperation in a creative and meaningful way. It is our belief at CreativeKids that giving your child the opportunity to be a part of a theatrical production is giving them a gift and memory they will treasure for a lifetime.
