Matilda Jr.
Kind, clever and precocious, young Matilda dreams of a better life even as she navigates a tumultuous childhood in Matilda Jr., a humorous, musical ode to the power of perseverance and imagination as embodied onstage by Mount Madonna Schools (MMS) middle school cast.

Performances are December 11 and 12 at 2:00pm at the Hawks Nest Theater at MMS. Adult tickets are $15; $10 for 18 and under; all seats are reserved.

Despite insensitive parents who leave her feeling lonely and unloved, Matildas extraordinary intelligence and special powers attract the attention of her teacher Miss Honey, who becomes her unexpected ally. School is no safe haven, however, as the headmistress despises children and inflicts creative punishments on those who dont abide by her rules. An unlikely heroine, Matilda inspires rebellion in her classmates who seek to teach a lesson to unkind grown-ups.

Matilda was a great choice for these current times were living in, commented Director Gitanjali Lori Rivera. What I love about this show is that its really dark, much in the tradition of Grimms Fairy Tales, and provides an opportunity to explore how we find the little beams of light, the little bits of magic that bring us hope.

In the story, students of the Crunchem Academy are faced with a bully in the form of the headmistress Miss Trunchbull, she continued. With the help of Matilda, who is faced with bullies at home and at school, and the magic of resilience, the students band together and overcome this oppression. What I am hoping our cast members take away from this story is an understanding of how resilience can lead to triumph, and with the power of community you can meet any challenge.

Mount Madonna Schools production of Roald Dahls Matilda The Musical Jr. book by Dennis Kelly. Music and lyrics by Tim Minchin. Matilda Jr. is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com
