Inspired by the creative genius of Roald Dahl, Matilda The Musical revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life.
Matilda is a girl with remarkable wit, intelligence and unexpected powers. Unloved and unappreciated by her parents, who value television over books, Matilda decides to rewrite her own story. First, she has to survive her first year of school with a headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, who loves rules, hates children, and loves to find cruel ways to punish anyone who doesn't follow her rules. Matilda finds an ally in her timid teacher, Miss Honey. But will Matilda's creativity and courage be enough to save her and the other students from Trunchbull's torture?
Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs, and even an acrobat, Matilda is a modern ode to girl power. The actors of Young Professionals Youth Theatre, who range in age from 7 to 18, will bring this story to life and have you tapping your toes and cheering on Matilda and her friends. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of this special girl with an extraordinary imagination.
