“…an exhilarating tale of empowerment as told from the perspective of the most powerless of them all… little children.” -New York Times
This Tony Award-winning musical follows the struggles of Matilda against her neglectful parents and cruel headmistress. An avid reader and brilliant young girl, Matilda dreams of a better life and a happy home. With the help of her kind teacher Miss Honey, the other students in her class, and a touch of magic, Matilda takes a stand against the evil forces in her life. The toe tapping score will have you dancing your way to the lobby after the curtain call and singing the songs long after you leave the theatre. Starring Ben Layman as the evil Miss Trunchbull and directed by the group production of Jeff Payton & Matt Shaffer.
A Maine Premiere!
