Over the production period of Matilda the Musical, we came to appreciate how important Matilda’s story is to all of us. Whether standing up to cruel and nasty people in power like the Wormwoods, bullies like Trunchbull or anything else life throws to test you, Matilda’s advice is clear: Do not give in. If something is wrong, you have to put it right and sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty to do the right thing. Matilda reminds us of the importance of friends, the delights of learning and the value of a person’s character; a message most befitting and as relevant now as it was when it was first written by Roald Dahl over thirty years ago.
Sincerest thank you to our St Hilda’s School community for your support of our production, and to The Southport School for hosting us in the beautiful Annand Theatre.
Finally, thank you and congratulations to our remarkable Matilda cast and crew on a stellar production.
