The Fine Arts Department at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s Perkinston Campus will be holding open auditions for the spring musical “Matilda” on Thursday, November 14. Auditions will begin at 6 p.m. in Malone Hall Auditorium. Anyone from the community and college is invited to audition for this family-friendly production.

“Matilda” is based on the beloved children’s book by Roald Dahl. It’s the story of a little girl with a love of books who uses her special powers to fight against the tyrannical principal at her new school. This show just finished a successful Broadway run and is a wonderful and fun family production.

To audition, please bring a prepared monologue of no longer than one minute and a song, and be prepared to dance. Children auditioning should be in at least first grade.

A workshop to help those planning to audition will be held on Thursday, November 7 at 6 p.m. in the Malone Hall Auditorium. The director will provide information about preparing for the audition along with general information about the musical.
