Step into the enchanting world of “Matilda,” a captivating stage adaptation of Roald Dahl’s beloved story. Join Matilda Wormwood, a brilliant and resilient girl, as she navigates a peculiar school filled with eccentric characters, including a tyrannical headmistress and a caring teacher. With the help of her extraordinary powers and unwavering spirit, Matilda embraces her uniqueness, triumphs over adversity, and shows us the transformative power of imagination and knowledge. This heartwarming and magical theatrical experience will inspire audiences of all ages to believe in themselves and celebrate the power of intellect and compassion.

This year, the students had asked for Matilda; interestingly, some were asking because they had seen the 90’s movie, some had read the books, and some had seen the musical. So I’ve put together, I hope, the best bits from all those versions. It’s been great for them all this term to get to know each other, as we have quite a few new students, which has been great. Their main struggle is remembering which stage we are on, as this is the first time they’ve had to work with different levels.

I really hope they have enjoyed creating our version of Matilda and that you enjoy you enjoy watching it.

Enjoy the show!
