MATILDA THE MUSICAL Comes to Layton, August 11

Over 50 cast members of all ages, accompanied by a live orchestra, will take to the stage at the Layton High School Auditorium for 6 performances of Matilda the Musical beginning Thursday, August 11th.

Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a sharp mind and vivid imagination dares to take a stand and change her destiny.

"For some, it's become an annual event. And, thanks to Layton RAMP and all of our partnerships, we continue to expand our audience engagement numbers and have become a natural addition to this wonderful community."
