Join us for a fun filled week of musical theatre as we work towards putting on performances of Matilda Junior in our Neville Studio Theatre, with book by Dennis Kelly and music and lyrics by Tim Minchin.

Matilda has astonishing wit, intelligence . . . and special powers! Though unloved by cruel parents Matilda makes an impression on her kind schoolteacher Miss Honey. School life isn’t plain sailing, especially as the mean headmistress Miss Trunchbull hates children and loves punishment. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts and could just be the school pupils saving grace!

For one week a group of young people will work together as a company to perfect the show and become the best bunch of ‘Revolting Children’ Nottingham Playhouse has ever seen.

Once booked on to the week, you will receive an email asking you to confirm an audition date in mid July.

We will be accepting bursary applications for this programme until midday on 5 July.

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International. All authorised Performance materials are also supplied by MTI
