ABOUT THE SHOW…
"The most satisfying and subversive musical ever to come out of Britain" - The New York Times
"An explosion of joy, the most exhilarating and flat-out best musical since “Billy Elliot.” -Variety
Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s book about a little girl with the power to overcome any obstacles (or just move them with her mind), will explode onto our Washington Park stage in August.
Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace!
Featuring the students of Playhouse Stage under the direction of Chuck Kraus, Matilda is perfect summer entertainment for the entire family to enjoy! Note: Matilda is a family-friendly musical, appropriate for children (and adults!) of all ages.
