Based on the Roald Dahl children’s novel, Matilda The Musical is a fun, sweet and inspiring story about one brilliant young girl of incredible spirit and abilities. Matilda is the neglected child of a ruthless car salesman and a self-absorbed amateur dancer who find more amusement in their television than their offspring. Intimidated by her intelligence, Matilda’s parents send her to Crunchem Hall, a school with a strict set of rules and a frightening head master — Ms. Trunchbull. Matilda finds friendship in the quirky kids around her and kindergarten teacher Miss Honey. While swapping secrets, Matilda shows Miss Honey that she can move objects with her mind. Fine-tuning her abilities, Matilda prepares the schoolchildren for a revolt against the tyrannical Ms. Trunchbull. With music and lyrics by composer Tim Minchin, Matilda The Musical is a triumphant tale of small proportions; proving big voices can come in small packages.
