Revel in the anarchy of childhood with Matilda the Musical at Theatrikos Fun for the whole family Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Matilda The Musical is the captivating masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda won 47 international awards and continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages around the world. Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the loveable Miss Honey. Her school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace! “Audiences can expect high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs, and a joyous girl-power romp”, said co-director Jan Rominger. “This show features the talents of 30 performers, ages 9 and up.” Added co-director Joe Maniglia, “Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.” Choreography by Jan Rominger and Will McDonald with musical direction by Kenlynn Winsor.
