Early Light Academy in partnership with Kensington Theatre is please to present Matilda!
Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical is the captivating masterpiece that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination, and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life.
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 lovable Miss Honey. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss 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 leading character, Matilda is a power romp. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.
- Auditions: There will no open auditions for Matilda. Because of COVID-19 we are approaching this production differently so it can still happen and we have confidence in the caution of our own organization’s management of procedures during this crazy time. We will be collaborating with Early Light Academy on this production and including adult actors from Kensington by invitation only.
