Armed with a sharp mind and a vivid imagination, Matilda buries her nose in books, living vicariously through the characters in her favorite stories. But things only get worse for Matilda when she’s forced to attend terrible Crunchem Hall, where she meets the oppressive headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. Faced with rotten circumstances, Matilda bravely decides to take action in an effort to change her fate. With the help of her friends and the kind-hearted Miss Honey, this miraculous little girl inspires her own revolution, ensuring that no one will ever overlook her again. Set to songs like the amusing “When I Grow Up” and the exuberant “Loud,” Matilda the Musical is guaranteed to delight and inspire audience members both big and small.
