Theatre 121’s Production of Matilda The Musical
Theatre 121 presents Matilda The Musical at the historic Woodstock Opera House from March 6th-22nd.
Matilda – the Musical is based on the children’s novel of the same name by Roald Dahl and adapted by Dennis Kelly, with music and lyrics by Tim Minchin. The cast of 24 is under the direction of Jordan Rakittke (Artistic Director), Aaron Gomez (Assistant Director), Sarah Inendino (Vocal Director) and Chesney Murphy (Choreographer).
The show contains your favorite characters from the novel. "Matilda Wormwood is one of the strongest, bravest, and tiniest heroines in literature. She changes her own destiny when she realizes no one else can do it for her, and then in finding that power within herself, she uses it to advocate for the world around her. It’s such an important story in this world we currently live in. I hope everyone who sees this show leaves empowered to make changes in this world and stand up for those who need it. We need more Matildas in this world,” says Jordan Rakittke, Artistic Director.
Matilda The Musical has won 47 international awards and children and adults will be delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.
