“And don’t worry about the bits you can’t understand.
Sit back and allow the words to wash around you, like music.“
Matilda by Roald Dahl
Amazing! Just as we were about to announce our Summer 2019 season, the performance rights to Matilda the Musical were released. We are beyond excited to be the first company in Ottawa and in Perth to be licensed to perform this fantastic show!
Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Matilda The Musical is the captivating masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda has won 47 international awards and continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages around the world.
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!
We will be rehearsing and performing the full and complete two-act production onstage – an epic undertaking, and one we can’t wait to begin! Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to join us in one of the most fantastic shows ever written!
Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs and an unforgettable cast of star characters, with tons of awesome characters for everyone to play, Matilda is a joyous kid power romp. Don’t miss it!
