Matilda: The Musical at UMW
book by Dennis Kelly
November 2 – 19, 2023
Step into a world of enchantment and adventure with Matilda the Musical, the Tony Award-winning musical based on the beloved children’s novel by Roald Dahl. Matilda Wormwood is an exceptionally gifted child with an extraordinary love of books, an incredibly vivid imagination, and just plain rotten luck in the parental department. Along with her friends and her teacher, Miss Honey, she stands up for injustice against the headmistress (scathingly but appropriately dubbed “The Trunchbull”) and other adults who “can’t be bothered with the affairs of wretched, filthy children.” With an incredible score and a cast of colorful characters, Matilda will awaken the childlike wonder in everyone!
“Dazzlingly inventive with considerable magic. I can’t wait to see it again.” —The Hollywood Reporter
“Truly revolutionary. The most satisfying and subversive musical to come out of Britain.” —The New York Times
