Once upon a time, Matilda Wormwood, an under-appreciated child with an extraordinary mind, sets about to change her own story, and bring hope to the lives of those around her.

But when her scheming, neglectful father enrolls her in Crunchem Hall Elementary School, under the authoritarian leadership of Ms. Trunchbull, Matilda's magical mind is called toward a different, revolting, adventure.

Matilda, based on the beloved children’s book by Roald Dahl, has been staged from the West End to Broadway, toured around the world and now lands at the Grand Theatre. Matilda and her classmates remind us that all stories can be rewritten; you just have to be a little bit naughty!




Is presented through a special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
