Linked below are the CREW Assignments for Matilda Jr. We had too many applicants for available positions. The first priority went to those who auditioned for Matilda Jr, but were not cast. The second priority went to those who applied for crew for Romeo & Winifred and were not assigned a position. From there, it came down to your choices, the number of available positions, and finally, the order in which forms were submitted. If you didn't get a position, please apply for crew or audition for the shows next year, either here or at Free State. Please send me an e-mail if you have questions.
