Columbine United Church
Based on Roald Dahl's beloved novel, Matilda the Musical tells the story of an extraordinary little girl who uses her vivid mind and telekinetic abilities to take a stand against her cruel parents and brutal principal. Campers will sing and dance to their favorite songs like "Revolting Children" and "When I Grow Up" while exploring eccentric and lovable characters in this thrilling story of love, growing up, and the power of imagination.
Matilda camp and performance will take place indoors at Columbine United Church in Littleton:
6375 S Platte Canyon Rd
Littleton, CO 80123
Camp Price: $215
A non-refundable deposit of $90 will be due at the time of registration. Families may choose to pay in full, or may pay only the non-refundable deposit. The remaining amount will be automatically withdrawn from the entered payment method on Friday, June 21st. The $90 deposit is non-refundable under any circumstances. No refunds of any amount will be issued after June 21st
As part of Stagebugz's mission to make arts education available to all, Theater Accessibility Grants are available to those unable to cover the entire cost of registration. Please visit our Financial Aid page to learn more.
Matilda will culminate in a final performance where students can show off what they learned to family and friends. The performance will be held at 12:00 PM on Friday, June 28th in the same location as camp.
Auditions and Casting
Every student is guaranteed a role with at least one line and one solo upon registering. Auditions simply help us to determine which spot each performer will enjoy and gain the most from. Summer camp is a great opportunity for every young actor to break out of their comfort zone and have a chance to take centerstage, so every camper will play a featured role.
Auditions for Matilda will be run workshop-style on the first day of camp. No prior preparation is required. The cast list will be sent out by the end of the night on June 24th. We do our best to find a role that each child will be excited about, but please remember that in Stagebugz shows, there truly are no small parts. Additionally, many factors go into casting a show, and not receiving their desired role is not a reflection of a child's level of talent.
