SEVEN OLIVIERS. FIVE TONYS. ONE INCREDIBLE GIRL.
TO CHANGE THE WORLD, IT TAKES A LITTLE GENIUS.
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER
Based on the beloved novel by Roald Dahl, Tony Award-winning Matilda The Musical will dazzle audiences of all ages at the Civic Arts Plaza this spring! With inspiring and fun songs and lyrics written by Tim Minchin, this extraordinary girl will show you how a sharp mind and vivid imagination can help you change your destiny!
A creative genius born into a family that doesn’t understand her, Matilda uses her imagination and intelligence to transport herself into a world of her own.
After being sent away to Crunchem Hall, run by the merciless Mrs. Trunchbull, she and the other students must band together. With the help of Miss Honey, Matilda is able to navigate her new surroundings and inspire those around her.
The tale of Matilda is a touching and often zany look into what happens when one dares to fight the unjust and takes control of their destiny.
"It would be easy to call it the best British musical since Billy Elliot, but that, I’m afraid, would be underselling it.
You have to go back to The Lion King to find a show with as much invention, spirit and genre-redefining verve."
