ABOUT THE SHOW
Meet Matilda, a precocious little girl who is ignored by her parents and bullied by the headmistress at school. With a wry sense of humor and a penchant for justice, she will win your heart. A "Best Musical" Tony winner based on Roald Dahl's popular children's novel, Matilda is a triumphant tale - exuberant, quirky, and over-the-top fun!
Actors! You won't want to miss this opportunity! As this is a musical, actors will need to be able to match pitch.
