Role Description

Mrs. Wormwood: mother of Michael and Matilda, and wife of Mr. Wormwood. Obsessed with her amateur ballroom dancing and her looks. Like her husband, she thinks very little of Matilda’s unique abilities and often berates her. As loud in her makeup and dress sense as she is in her voice. Must have strong comedy. Needs a really strong belt voice, with matching vocal stamina. The number “Loud” is a hard sing, and requires a very strong tone, up to top F/G, with higher ad libs. Should have strong dance (Latin a particular advantage).
