Matilda JR.

We are delighted to announce that our next production is Matilda the Musical Jr!!!!

The wait is finally over!  We have secured the performing rights for Matilda the Musical Jr. based on the hit West End show and famous Roald Dahl story Matilda.

After asking our current cast to vote, this was the clear favourite and we are absolutely thrilled to have obtained the rights for a show which has been in development for so long.

Rebellion is nigh in Matilda JR., a gleefully witty ode to the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination! This story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the children she inspires will have audiences rooting for the “revolting children” who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson.

Matilda has astonishing wit, intelligence… and special powers! She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just 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!

Packed with high-energy dance numbers and catchy songs, Matilda JR. is a joyous girl power romp. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

With plenty of parts to go around including Mr. Wormwood, Miss. Trunchbull, Bruce Bogtrotter, Miss. Honey and of course Matilda herself Matilda the Musical JR. is an ideal production for our youth company ensuring every one of our young actors is fully involved throughout with lines, songs and routines to learn.
