TIME Magazine’s #1 Show of the Year comes to the Orpheum (March 28 – April 2)! Winner of 50 international awards, including four Tony Awards®, Matilda The Musical is the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.
Based on the beloved novel by Roald Dahl, Matilda The Musical continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages in London’s West End. The Wall Street Journal says, “The makers of Matilda have done the impossible – triumphantly! It is smart, sweet, zany and stupendous fun.”
“REJOICE. It is even more glorious than promised.” – New York Times
“WELCOME TO THE DELIRIOUSLY AMUSING, HEARTWARMING, HEAD-SPINNING WORLD OF MATILDA THE MUSICAL. YOU WON’T WANT TO LEAVE.” – Bloomberg News
Ninety students from Oakdale Elementary are traveling from Menomonie, Wisconsin to see Matilda the Musical! Below they say “hello” to the cast before they start their journey.
In Matilda Wormwood’s world, there are some awful adults who refer to children not so endearingly as “maggots.” The adults don’t fare much better with the children calling them “assorted fools,” “idiots” and “nincompoops.” And they all speak lightning-fast with British accents.
