Matilda, JR

September 22, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Come watch the New Broadway Classic, direct from London, “MATILDA Jr.”.  with over 40 local kids onstage and running the technical parts.


Matilda JR 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 creates 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 Hall’s motto: “Children are Maggots.” She finds companionship in her teacher, Miss Honey, who, 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. Matilda’s 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.”


Songs include: Naughty, Revolting Children, The Smell of Rebellion, Quiet and more.


Performances will be at the Bigfork Center for the Performing Arts on Friday and Saturday September 22nd, 23rd, 29th  & 30th at 7:30PM with a Sunday Matinee on October 1st at 2:00.  Tickets can be purchased online or at the Box Office one hour prior to performances.  Don’t miss out – tickets are going fast.
