The Story of Matilda the Musical

Matilda the Musical is a heartwarming and whimsical stage adaptation of Roald Dahl's beloved children's novel, brought to life on stage. The story follows an extraordinary young girl called Matilda Wormwood, a precocious and intellectually gifted girl who faces neglect and mistreatment at the hands of her shallow and self-absorbed parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wormwood, and the tyrannical school headmistress, Miss Trunchbull.
Matilda’s awful parents are only interested in watching TV and her school life isn’t much better with the terrifying headmistress Miss Trunchbull who makes the children’s lives a misery every day. Luckily one day Matilda discovers that she has superpowers and she decides it’s time to teach these grown ups a lesson they will never forget! With a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, we see Matilda take a stand to change her own destiny.
