Event Details

Matilda The Musical is an adaptation of the 1988 Roald Dahl novel written by Dennis Kelly and Tim Minchin and commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company. SAYT’s production is directed by Susan Candey, with choreography by Skylar Taavola, music direction by Jeff Bruning, orchestra direction by Matt Mitchell, and stage-managed by Aubrey Wolck.

Matilda is the story of a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, Miss Honey. The school’s tyrannical headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for anyone who doesn’t abide by her rules. Matilda, who has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, could be her classmates and Miss Honey’s saving grace! Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.
