Matilda: The Musical
Inspired by the genius Roald Dahl, this uplifting story celebrates the power of imagination. Matilda is a little girl with wondrous wit, intelligence, and special powers. She is forgotten and unloved by her outrageous parents and her school’s cruel headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. Matilda finds an ally and friend in her loving teacher, Miss Honey, who not only recognizes but appreciates her extraordinary personality. Through Matilda’s courage and cleverness – and her dream of a better life – she dares to take a stand against the oppressive forces that have tried to hold her back as she begins to create her own destiny.
