I first saw Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical in New York, securing a last-minute ticket to the show that has won seven Olivier Awards and five Tony Awards. The musical is based on Dahl’s children’s novel and will perform at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts this Fall.
Matilda the Musical
Matilda the Musical follows the story of Matilda, a precocious 5-year-old girl who has the unique gift of telekinesis. With a sharp mind, a vivid imagination, and a love for books, Matilda boldly takes a stand against the tyranny of adults who seek to crush her imagination. Along with her classmates, Matilda overcomes the obstacles in her home and school life, and helps her teacher reclaim her life. Filled with exciting dance numbers and catchy songs, Matilda will delight audiences and inspire kids to stand up for what is right, including advocating for those who cannot.
