On Wednesday Eve and I went to an audition information session for Northern Stage’s upcoming production of Matilda: The Musical. This will be a professional production that runs through the holiday season. In order to audition she needs to memorize a “cut” from one of the songs (they gave her the sheet music with lyrics), plus a “cut” from a contemporary Broadway musical of her choice, plus a head shot and a resume. Upon hearing this she leans over and whispers, “What’s a resume, Mom?” I think hers will be fairly short!
I’m not sure she has the stamina for such an activity, and truthfully I’m not sure this family has the stamina for it either. However, she is excited and we are going with that. The director reminded the kids that he isn’t looking for “beautiful people with beautiful voices,” he’s looking for quirky kids. Eve was happy to hear that. :)
Auditions are June 2nd.
