Playhouse on the Square
Based on the Roald Dahl novel of the same name, Matilda is the story of an extraordinary girl with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind whose talents are constantly belittled by her cruel parents, and hostile headmistress the wicked Miss Trunchbull. Reclusive, but with an ever-growing imagination and sharp mind, Matilda dreams of a better life – and proves that no matter your age you have the power to control your own destiny.
