South Coast Repertory Theatre Conservatory Presents The Summer Players in

Roald Dahl's
The Musical


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.

Recommendation: Age 6 and above. Contains strobe lighting effects.

Running time: Approximately two hours and 15 minutes including one intermission.
