Perform on the Big Stage!

ABOUT THE SHOW

Matilda, a precocious young girl who is neglected by her family, finds solace in the library and her compassionate teacher, Miss Honey. When the school principal Miss Trunchbull makes school unbearable for her classmates, Matilda uses her powers of telekinesis to overcome the bully and create a better life for herself. 

Matilda originated in London’s West End in 2011 and features an unforgettable score by musical comedian Tim Minchin. The musical is the winner of seven Olivier Awards and five Tony Awards.
