Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, with book by Dennis Kelly and music and lyrics by Tim Minchin, this is the story of Matilda. Her dreadful parents can't stand her. Her headmistress is a horrible, nasty, name-calling, life-sucking tyrant who puts kids in cupboards with nails and broken glass. (And you thought you had it bad.) This captivating girl-power romp revels in the anarchy of childhood. Celebrating the tenacity of the small, Matilda proves that the strength to be yourself (along with a little telekinetic power) will prevail at the end of the day. The production runs April 28 through June 23, 2019 on the UnitedHealth Group stage at Children's Theatre Company.
