Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Matilda: The Musical tells the story of Matilda, 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. 

Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other’s lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda’s extraordinary personality. 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’s pupils’ saving grace!

Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs and amazing flying effects, Matilda is a joyous girl power romp unlike anything Columbia has ever seen. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination!
