Students from The Academy at Century Theatre present Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical JR.
Based on the beloved book “Matilda” by Roald Dahl and adapted from the award-winning full-length musical, Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical JR. tells the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.
Sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty if you want to change your story.
Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical JR. is adapted from the full-length musical which was based on the book by Roald Dahl, and features a book by Dennis Kelly and music and lyrics by Tim Minchin. The show opened on the West End in 2011 and made its Broadway premiere in 2013. The musical earned seven Olivier Awards, including “Best New Musical,” and five Tony awards, including The Tony for “Best Book of a Musical.”
Matilda, a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers, lives with cruel parents. They find her to be a nuisance, a lousy little worm, and a bore. Matilda enters her first term at school and captures the attention of Miss Honey, a kind teacher. The two form a wonderful friendship.
Unfortunately, the school is ruled by a tempestuous and mean headmistress named Miss Trunchbull, who hates children and delivers cruel and unjust punishments to all her charges.
Matilda is determined to change her story. Will her cleverness and courage be enough to withstand the reign of Miss Trunchbull?
Don’t miss this wonderful musical – a fantastic show for the whole family to enjoy!
Duration: 1 hour.
