Welcome

Los Alamos Light Opera Presents!

MATILDA

Director: Wendy Caldwell Lanchier
Music Director: Gretchen Amstutz 
 

 

LALO is thrilled to bring you Matilda in February 2023! We need singers, actors, and dancers of all ages! Auditions will be held at the United Church on Saturday, October 22 and Sunday, October 23, from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m.
 
Adults/teens: Please prepare about 16 bars of a song that shows your vocal range with READABLE sheet music.
 
Kids (8+): The music director will select a portion of music from the show for you to learn and sing. Watch this space for more information.
 
Younger children: The opening number is a great opportunity for younger children to have some stage time with minimal time commitment! 
 
Auditions will consist of singing, reading from the script, and dancing. Please arrive at 1 p.m. for singing and acting. If you are ONLY interested in dancing, please arrive at 3 p.m.
 
If needed, callbacks will be held Monday, October 24 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Rehearsals will begin in November. Vocal rehearsals will meet more often at first so that the chorus has plenty of time to learn harmonies. 
 
Dance numbers will include Latin ballroom, contemporary, hip-hop, ballet, and Broadway/jazz. Dancers may opt for any/all styles they are comfortable performing. In addition to rehearsals, dance numbers will be recorded and made available for extra practice. NOTE: intermediate/advanced dancers participating in December performances through our local dance studios will NOT be required to attend dance rehearsals until after their December shows with endorsement from their dance instructor (but are of course welcome to).
 
You may contact the director (wendykcaldwell@gmail.com) to schedule an alternative audition time if needed.
