Welcome backstage! 

Here you will find all the information you need regarding additional rehearsal information, theatre drop off times, costume requirements and access to rehearsal materials.



Information regarding which casts are performing which show performance can be found by visiting the productions section and clicking on 'about the show'. Alternative you can click here.


In addition the the weekly rehearsal times, this show will have the following additional rehearsals which all cast are asked to attend (please note: Sunday 27th March rehearsal has been moved to 3rd April) :


Sunday 3rd April at Wigle Studios:

Tuesday rehearsal group 10.00am - 1.30pm

Thursday rehearsal group 1.30pm - 5.00pm

Sunday 10th April at Theatre Severn:

Tuesday rehearsal group 5.30pm - 8.00pm

Thursday rehearsal group 3.00pm - 5.30pm

On Sunday the 10th of April, drop offs and collections are to be at the main stage door. This is outside the front of the Theatre Severn, to the left of the main entrance.

We would like both teams to stay for both theatre rehearsals on the Sunday. This allows them to perform one run through and also watch the other teams run. We have found this to be very beneficial for previous casts. 

Please provide your child enough food and drink for the duration of both rehearsals on the Sunday as they will not have the opportunity to leave.


If your child can not stay for both rehearsals, please email Danni via to let her know.  


Access to an online version of the script can be found by CLICKING HERE.

A Facebook group called GYWO Matilda has been created where videos of the dance routines will be posted throughout the rehearsal process for children to practice at home. Please request access and ensure you mention the name of your child.
