Theatre Tulsa Seeking the Perfect ‘Bruce’ for ‘Matilda The Musical’

Theatre Tulsa is conducting a search across Green Country to find the best young actor to play the role of “Bruce” in its upcoming production of “Matilda The Musical.”

“We are seeking a small actor with a big voice,” said Jarrod Kopp, executive director of Theatre Tulsa.

Theatre Tulsa is seeking a male actor who fits the following requirements: between the ages of 8-12, no taller than 5'2", and with an unchanged voice.

“The role of Bruce is a lot of fun, but it requires a young actor with a high voice who can sing with a lot of heart and soul,” added Theatre Tulsa Artistic Director Sara Phoenix.

To audition, young actors are encouraged to record a video of themselves singing the opening and closing sections of “Revolting Children” from the soundtrack of “Matilda The Musical.” The video file or link should be sent to for review. The Deadline for submissions is Friday, June 4.

Rehearsals for “Matilda The Musical” will begin June 14. Performances will be Aug 13-29 at The Tulsa Performing Arts Center.

Rehearsals will be held Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays at 6:30-9:30pm, and some Saturdays through the summer.
