About Matilda The Musical
Matilda The Musical brings the charming adaptation of Roald Dahl’s heartwarming story to the stage at Cincinnati’s Aronoff Center for the Arts. This show boasts more than fifty international awards, including TIME Magazine’s “#1 Show of the Year.” Popular with audiences of all ages, the show combines wit and zany humor with memorable musical numbers to create a wonderful ride. Matilda celebrates the wonder of childhood and the power of a vivid imagination.
Matilda is a precocious young girl with a vivid imagination and extraordinary talent. She struggles with ignorant parents who prize beauty over brains and decide to send her away to school at Crunchem Hall to whip her into shape. She encounters the cruel discipline of the school’s headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. With the help of a kind teacher, Miss Honey, she begins to take charge of her own destiny. Chaos and hilarity ensue as she applies her quick wit and telekinetic ability to stand against tyranny, set her friends free and create a new life for herself.
