Alpine Theatre launches search for child stars

Print Article

Alpine Theatre Project is conducting a statewide search for actors to star in its upcoming production of Roald Dahl’s “Matilda the Musical.” The Whitefish-based theatre company, known for featuring Broadway actors, is currently the only theatre company in the Western United States that has been granted permission to produce the Tony Award-winning musical. Apline Theatre Project will be holding auditions for the musical’s eponymous star as well as Matilda’s classmates. Auditions will be held for young actors between the ages of 8-11 years old from 4:30-8:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 3 at the Whitefish Performing Arts Center, located at 127 Spokane Ave. in Whitefish. Registration begins at 3:30 p.m.

“Matilda the Musical,” an internationally-recognized and Tony Award®-winning production, tells the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.

During the auditions for the show, all actors will be asked to learn a small dance combination. Female actors will be asked to sing the song, “Naughty,” from the show. Male actors will be asked to sing the song, “Revolting Children,” from the show. Callbacks will be held at a later date at ATP’s headquarters in Whitefish.

“Matilda the Musical” is part of ATP’s 2018 Broadway Summer Season, which also includes the 50’s-era musical revue, “Smokey Joe’s Cafe,” and the one-man comedy, “Fully Committed.” “Matilda the Musical” will open on July 7 and run in rotating repertory with the other productions until July 20. Rehearsals for “Matilda the Musical” will begin lightly in May with full rehearsals beginning June 5.
