Olney Theatre Center Matilda
From the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory comes another unlikely hero: Matilda Wormwood. Born to parents who prize their own ignorance and disdain books, learning and any information they can't get from television, Matilda somehow manages to emerge ... a genius. Maybe even a magical one. However, she and the rest of the school are under the tyrannical rule of a deliciously devious villain, principal Agatha Trunchbull. Matilda embraces the fearful and terrifying moments of childhood with humor, hard-earned optimism and astoundingly witty musical numbers. Songs like "Miracle," "Naughty" and "Revolting Children" will ring true to adults and belong in the survival kit of any child making their way through pre-adolescence and beyond. Book by Dennis Kelly. Music & Lyrics by Tim Minchin. Based on the book Matilda by Roald Dahl. Music Directed by Christopher Youstra. Choreography by Byron Easley. Directed by Peter Flynn. Age Guidance: If this were a film it would be rated PG.
