LOCATION: The Landers Theatre


Matilda is an extraordinary girl who, armed with a sharp mind and vivid imagination, dares to take a stand and change her destiny. She is a genius born into a less brilliant family. Her dad is a car salesman with a few scruples loose and her mom is an amateur ballroom dancer who values looks over books—not a great match for a girl who reads Dostoyevsky in the original Russian.

Things only get worse for Matilda when her parents send her to school at the ghastly Crunchem Hall where she meets the tyrannical head mistress, Miss Trunchbull. Faced with these ridiculously rotten circumstances, Matilda bravely decides to take action with the help of her friends and her kind-hearted teacher, Miss Honey proving that everyone has the power to change their story.
