NYMT is hard to get into but not impossible and it is fab. And if a child is good enough to be in Matilda they would have a very good chance.

Is she 9 before the tour starts? That is what they will be looking for. Working hours for under 9's are shorter, that is why they stipulate age. They like to look for future potential as well.

From what I remember, rehearsals aren't covered by licence, so you should be OK. Best of luck to everyone going for this.

I wonder if it is different for certain councils then as Kent regulations definitely apply to rehearsals and performances. They can do longer hours when they are aged 9 and over

Gingerbam I wouldn't worry about your DD ballet grade, my niece has recently come out of matilda and they don't need ballet for the show or audition, it's more sharp dancing they like xx
