From Road Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) comes another classic childhood story. The unlikely hero Matilda Wormwood is born to parents who prize their own ignorance and disdain books, learning, and any information they can't get from television. Despite her parents, Matilda somehow manages to emerge a genius. Maybe even a magical one. However, she and the rest of the school are under the tyrannical rule of a deliciously devious villain, principal Agatha Trunchbull.
Matilda The Musical embraces the fearful and terrifying moments of childhood with humor, hard-earned optimism, and astoundingly witty musical numbers. Songs like "Miracle," "Naughty," and "Revolting Children" will ring true to adults and belong in the survival kit of any child making their way through preadolescence and beyond.
