About the Show…

Roald Dahl’s Matilda, is a stage musical with music and lyrics by Tim Minchin and a book by Dennis Kelly, based on the 1988 novel Matilda by Roald Dahl. The musical’s narrative centers on Matilda Wormwood, a precocious 5-year-old girl who lives with her brother and parents, who are unappreciative of her. She utilizes her telekinetic abilities to overcomes obstacles caused by her family and school, and helps her teacher to reclaim her life.
