CTA To Present Roald Dahl’s “Matilda The Musical”

Show Runs October 21 Through November 6


Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl’s “Matilda The Musical” is a captivating masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. With a book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, “Matilda” has won 47 international awards and continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages around the world.

“Matilda” is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Ms. Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Ms. Honey have a profound effect on each other’s lives, as Ms. Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda’s extraordinary personality. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Ms. 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, catchy songs and an unforgettable star turn for a young actress, “Matilda” 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.

The artistic staff includes director Atticus Cooper Boidy, music director Emily Sergo and choreographer Brandon Glass.

Show dates are Fridays at 7:00pm, Saturdays at 11:00am and 4:00pm, and Sundays at 2:00pm from October 21 through November 6.
