A performance certain to delight audiences of all ages, the story follows Matilda, a brilliant young girl with a powerful imagination and an even more powerful gift of telekinesis. Her opposition to her father’s unscrupulous ways and her mother’s preference for looks over intelligence leads to conflict with her parents. They send Matilda to Crunchem Hall, a school under the care of the cruel headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. When she witnesses the brutal methods of discipline, she decides to take action. With the help of Miss Honey, a friendly teacher, she fights back to control her destiny and free her friends from Miss Trunchbull in this inspiring story of childhood wonder and the power of imagination.
