Matilda The Musical San Jose Tickets
Matilda The Musical
Matilda The Musical brings Roald Dahl’s heartwarming story to the San Jose stage with what TIME Magazine called “the #1 Show of the Year.” The musical charms young and old audiences alike with wit, zany humor, and award-winning musical numbers that combine to create a memorable experience. The production boasts fifty international awards including four Tony Awards. A fan favorite, Matilda continues to enjoy big box office success in London, New York and all across the U.S.
Matilda is an extraordinary little girl. She is smart and precocious, preferring to read Doestoyevsky in the original Russian rather than watch TV. With such a big intellect, a vivid imagination and the unique gift of telekinesis, she struggles with her difficult family. Her father, an unscrupulous car salesman, and her mother, who prefers looks over books, vindictively insist that she be “normal”. Her parents send her to school at Crunchem Hall where she finds herself in conflict with Miss Trunchbull, the school’s tyrannical headmistress, who applies cruel discipline to keep order. Together with her friends and the help of teacher and friend, Miss Honey, she creates her own destiny in this inspiring story of overcoming obstacles and the power of imagination.
