was told my daughter is too tall for Matilda but maybe a classroom child. I wonder if they are doing Matildas first?

My daughter auditioned for classmates in March and has now been invited in for ‘blue kids’ on Friday. Does anyone know what the ‘blue kids’ are? I’m thinking maybe the older kids in the school as my daughter is relatively tall....

Class Mates
Looking for real children with bags of personality and individuality who appear in production numbers as Matilda’s classmates.
Must be EXCELLENT dancers.

Prefects
They need to be competent with a dance background, able to navigate stairs and travel at speed and move like machines dominating the hallways.

Maroon
Must be excellent dancers. Think Flawless, Diversity types.

Scarlet
Looking for a variety of different types for this group, think individuality.

Blue
Looking for EXCELLENT Dancers.
This is the strongest ability dance group and need VERY physically confident and experienced dancers.

Red
MUST be brilliant dancers with loads of energy.

Hazel
We need really strong counters for this group.
Precision and attention to detail is key here.
Excellent movement skills.

Acro

I was wondering that too - I think it varies group to group - blue is up to 4’11’ but I think others are much smaller. Also wondering if all groups require the kids to be London based?

I heard rumours they re filming near the Chilterns, so I doubt only London based kids. Most film studios are outside of London. x

Yes, I would think Pinewood or Shepperton - maybe location shoots in Chilterns?

We have not heard anything so I think my daughter is out.

Good luck everyone. x
