Roald Dahl’s Matilda, the Musical

Book by Dennis Kelly

Music & Lyrics by Tim Minchin

Based on the book, Matilda, by Roald Dahl


Director: Allyson Paris

Music Director: Charles Hutchins

Choreographer: Erin Kacos-Pott

Stage Manager: Kieran Smith


Precocious Matilda lives in a world of imagination with no boundaries.  She needs to.  Her mom is a self-absorbed dancer.  Her father is a deceptive swindler.  The headmistress at her school, Miss Agatha Trunchbull, is a tyrannical disciplinarian.  Her only reprieve is getting lost in the worlds found in her imagination or her books, and time with her teacher, Miss Honey, who takes interest in her intellect and wit.  With the help of her new ally and a touch of magic, Matilda manages to navigate everything from family drama to unifying her classmates against Miss Trunchbull’s evil ways.  A scrappy story of heart, filled with colorful characters, that celebrates how different life can be when you take a stand for your future.
