Matilda the Musical
Celebrating the opening of our Fall/Winter 2019-2020 Season we start with our incredible all age production of Matilda the Musical.

October 18th - 26th, 2019.
The Rio Theatre, Santa Cruz

"The story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny."

Matilda is the story of an extraordinary little girl with extraordinary powers. The daughter of abusive parents, Matilda finds refuge in library books, which she reads quickly and in creating her own stories. Things are no better at school, where Matilda also must face a tyrannical and cruel headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, who believes in Crunchem Halls motto: Bambinatum est Magitum, or Children are Maggots.

She finds companionship in her teacher, Miss Honey, though well-intentioned, is shy and fragile. Brave little Matilda knows she has to stand up against the adults in her world, and in doing so, discovers her own remarkable powers. Matildas bravery teaches Miss Honey and her classmates an important lesson -- that even though life can be hard, nobody but me is gonna change my story so sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty.
