Description:

When I Grow Up...

Inspired by the fantastic genius of Roald Dahl, and combined with the witty music and lyrics of Tim Minchin, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical is a captivating Broadway masterpiece new to the CharacterWorks stage! Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit and intelligence. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the loving Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace! Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of this special little girl with an extraordinary imagination!
