Current Production

Based on the beloved Roald Dahl Children’s novel, this musical follows young Matilda, an exceptional young girl with a thirst for reading and learning, who also happens to have a magical gift. Her obnoxious family and bully headmistress at school incite strife that with the help of new found friends, Matilda not only overcomes, but also helps her beloved teacher thrive along the way.

Come join Matilda and her “MIRACLE” friends, as they get a little bit “NAUGHTY”, all while becoming “REVOLTING CHILDREN” in this truly enjoyable adventure.
