Matilda The Musical is the multi-award winning musical from the Royal Shakespeare Company, inspired by the beloved book by the incomparable Roald Dahl, and this Autumn local company ‘Lights, Camera…Confidence,’ bring it to life on the stage of CRAIC Theatre for two shows ONLY!
Welcoming to stage Matilda, Lavender, Bruce and friends, the amazingly talented Miss Trunchbull, Miss Honey, Mr and Mrs Wormwood, (to name but a few) this will be a show not to be missed!
With a tinge of sadness, rebellion, naughtiness and humour it is a roller-coaster of emotion, drama, laughter and magic… with a cast age-range from 4-18 and some of the most incredible talent we have brought to the stage so far, this promises to be a show-stopper for ALL ages.
