Role Description

Matilda: (Lead) must be 4'2" or shorter. Strong singer and confident speaker. Good understanding of text and intelligent approach to acting. Should look like the runt of the litter. She does not appear posh or contemporary, rather more damaged and weak from a working class background. However, she is extremely bright, fearless and focused, and able to speak assertively. A fiercely clever child, living in an abusive household she escapes into books and her imagination.
