The inspiring story of an extraordinary girl comes to life in Roald Dahl’s "MATILDA THE MUSICAL."
Based on the beloved novel, "MATILDA THE MUSICAL" is the magical story of a courageous little girl with an unbounded imagination.
Armed with intelligence and telekinesis, 9-year-old British heroine Matilda Wormwood overcomes obstacles set in motion by her indifferent and self-indulgent parents.
The Wormwoods provide a dark comic relief with their love of money and all things kitsch!
Unable to deal with Matilda’s brilliance, they send her to a school run by the iconic – and sadistic –headmistress Miss Trunchbull.
The precocious bookworm fiercely defends what’s right, not only standing up for herself, but for her classmates and her like-minded teacher Miss Honey.
Her convictions coupled with a vivid imagination – and a little bit of magic – enable Matilda to transform her life into the one she’s always yearned for.
"MATILDA THE MUSICAL" is directed by award-winning director, and The Company Theatre co-founder, Zoe Bradford.
The show features musical direction by Mel Carubia and choreography by Brad Reinking.
Reese Raciot of Plymouth will be featured as Matilda, along with Winslow Levin of Hingham as a Matilda alternate.
As Miss Trunchbull, headmistress, Christie Reading of Bryantville and Ron Vorce of Boylston each bring an overpowering presence and twisted sense of humor to the tyrannical giant who frightened the life out of her pupils.
"MATILDA THE MUSICAL" proves that despite the odds, you can do anything you put your mind to—and change your destiny!
