The genius of Roald Dahl comes to life in an inspiring musical about an extraordinary girl who dreams of a better life. Matilda’s talents are constantly belittled by her cruel parents and nasty Miss Trunchbull, the school’s headmistress. Using her sharp mind, vivid imagination and a love for books, Matilda dares to take a stand against Miss Trunchbull’s tyranny—with the help of her classmates and support from her teacher, Miss Honey. An exhilarating tale of empowerment filled with high-energy music and dancing from SCR’s Summer Players, talented young actors who audition for their roles after completing at least a year in the Theatre Conservatory.
