Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical

Matilda faces incredible odds with neglectful parents and a cruel headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. The only person who sees her and her gifted personality is her lovable teacher, Miss Honey. Using her extraordinary imagination and psychokinetic powers, Matilda overcomes every obstacle and teaches classmates and grown-ups alike to stand up for themselves and find their magic within. Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical is a delight for all ages.

Please join us in the West Lobby 30 minutes prior to each curtain for a pre-show talk presented by Playhouse staff.
