Matilda The Musical

Book by Dennis Kelly Music & Lyrics by Tim Minchin

On Stage August 29 – September 22

Adults – $27 | Students / Children – $13

Matilda is a clever little girl with the extraordinary ability to move things with her mind. Unloved by her cruel parents, Matilda also is mistreated by Miss Trunchbull, her school’s child-hating headmistress who lives to dream up terrible punishments. But Matilda’s teacher, sweet Miss Honey, loves her for being a bright, brave young dreamer. The kindness of just one person, plus Matilda’s own vivid imagination, empowers her to find the courage to change her destiny. Inspired by the dark whimsy of Roald Dahl’s book and the beloved 1996 film, this is a thrilling, joyous, girl-power romp full of catchy songs and high-energy dance numbers. Children and adults alike will fall in love with Matilda!
