Looking to cast Bruce in Matilda, the Musical at the Kitsap Forest Theater

Kitsap Forest Theater/Mountaineers Players

About the project and the company

The Mountaineers Players invite you to create the enchantment of Roald Dahl’s Matilda, the Musical at the magical Kitsap Forest Theater. This show revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. We are looking to finish casting for this show with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs and an uplifting message. We are specifically looking for an actor with a boy soprano or a high tenor voice who is 5’2″ or shorter and can play young and can sing the challenging Bruce song. Stipends are available for some roles.

Show dates are May 26, 27, June 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16; 2:00 pm – 2024

Other details

The beautiful Kitsap Forest Theater is owned by The Mountaineers, a 501(c)3 outdoor education and conservation organization in Seattle. This year was our 100th Anniversary year! We strive to produce high quality shows with stellar acting, singing and dancing. We value strong character development and fast-paced shows. We typically have actors and production staff from both sides of Puget Sound. Performing out of doors in our beautiful and unique outdoor theater brings many joys (and challenges) that bonds the multi-age cast together and delights the appreciative audiences. It's a great venue for all ages - kids included!

We have some weekend rehearsals at the theater in Bremerton (Saturday or both days with an overnight stay possible). Many actors choose to spend the night at the theater on Saturday night and enjoy the camaraderie of "hanging out" together at Kitsap Cabin where volunteer cooks prepare Saturday night dinner and Sunday breakfast and lunch. We encourage carpools and sharing commuter ferry passes to help with transportation costs.

It is our policy to carefully schedule rehearsals so that you are not called unless you are needed. Main characters can be expected to come to most rehearsals.

We have a "Survival Guide" with more information about rehearsing and staying at the Kitsap Forest Theater and information about The Mountaineers Players on our audition page.
