    Has anyone double or triple cast the school kids and other small parts in Matilda? Or if you have a good sense of which characters could be doubled...Just had auditions and I can't use everyone for this production.

    We just finished Matilda. I broke down the entire show / cast so we knew the bare minimum number of actors needed. If you would like, I can share it with you (it's a Google Sheet). If so, send me your email!

    I would take a Matilda scene breakdown.

    It sounds like you have a growing dept. I usually double anything with 15 lines (text or sung) or more to maximize parts if helpful... I also doubled the escapologist and acrobat, Phelps, even Sergei cause I had two newer theater students in that role...

    PS Also on everyone's off nights for those smaller roles they were just in the big or small kid ensemble. It makes rehearsing a bit more complicated but you basically put the off-night Phelps in the same position in for ex. a dance number so no matter which Phelps is on your ensemble numbers and choreo also looks the same etc...

    To clarify, I only have 20 actors and need to know which roles/characters can be doubled/tripled. In other words, I need to know which actors can quickly change to other characters/scenes.
