“What have you done to my son? Our shy, quiet introverted boy comes out head held high, full of joy, energy and confidence” Amy

Drama accelerates the social and educational development of children. Auditioning for a part and performing on stage, builds resilience and confidence. Friendships and teamwork are nurtured through the process of supporting each other. Role play inspires creativity, empathy and the skill of resolving conflict. These experiences run through every Dramacube rehearsal, production and workshop as we share with children the magic of the performing arts through acting, singing and dancing..

Matilda the Musical Jrsing dance & perform

Dramacube are delighted to present Matilda the Musical Jr officially licenced from Musical Theatre International.

Rebellion is nigh in Matilda JR., a gleefully witty ode to the the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination! This story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the children she inspires will have audiences rooting for the “revolting children” who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson.

Matilda has astonishing wit, intelligence… and special powers! She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils’ saving grace!

Packed with high-energy dance numbers and catchy songs, Matilda JR. is a joyous girl power romp. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

Rehearsals & Castingsing dance & perform

Weekly rehearsals for Matilda JR are led by our professional Musical Theatre team in Hampton Hill, Twickenham, Esher & Walton on Thames.

Whilst rehearsing songs, scenes and routines, children will also learn about stage direction, characterisation and the importance of supporting ensemble. If your child enjoys acting, singing and dancing, they will love it!

Weeks 1-2: Workshops & Auditions

Our Musical Theatre team will help young performers explore and learn the story, characters, songs and routines in 2 weeks of workshop auditions. Young performers are asked to list the three parts they’d like to audition for and one part they definitely don’t want to play.

Week 3: Casting Announced

The Director will aim to cast every child in a role they’d like to play and that stretches their development. Everyone will have lines, songs and routines to learn for the show. We start rehearsals with our BIG opening number so the whole cast are involved and working together.

Week 3 to showtime! The cast will come together for 2.5 hours per week, 2 – 3 additional 4-hour weekend rehearsals and a full tech & dress rehearsal (on stage) culminating in 2 full scale performances at Hampton Hill Theatre.

Cast sizes vary depending on the number of roles available and places will be offered on a first come, first served basis so don’t miss out – enrol today! (see full terms & conditions).
