From Page to Stage, Matilda Will Enchant Audiences As It Did Readers

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning show, 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. Now, you can see this beautiful story unfold before your eyes at the Mañana Theatre, beginning Friday, March 20th!

The story centers on Matilda, a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence…and psychokinetic powers. Crazy, right? In spite of all this, she's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality.

Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however. The school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't follow rules. But. Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts and could be the school pupils' saving grace! With a book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda has won 47 international awards and continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages around the world.

Matilda will play at Casa Mañana Theatre from Friday, March 20th to Sunday, April 5th. You can enhance your theatre-going experience with a pre-show tea party, complete with tea, treats, and a meet-and-greet with Miss Honey and Matilda. Tickets are available at www.casamanana.org.
