Matilda, The Musical

By Roald Dahl

Directed by Brian Cowing

The story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, proves that despite the odds, you can change your story and your destiny. Unloved by her parents and belittled by her child-hating headmistress, Matilda boldly steps up to set things right with her sharp mind, the help of her friends, and the support of her kind-hearted teacher. This Broadway hit and winner of 16 Best Musical awards is packed with high energy dance and wonderful songs.
