Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis completes its 2018-2019 season with an exhilarating retelling of the four-time Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical. 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 kid-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.
“There’s nothing better than watching a young person who is strong, smart, funny, and determined stand up and make a difference,” says Peter C. Brosius, CTC Artistic Director and Matilda director. “It’s incredibly inspiring.”
See Matilda, Bruce, Lavender, and all their schoolmates face off with the monstrous Miss Trunchbull when they take the stage April 28-June 23.
