The Henry Beaufort School
Production of
Roald Dahl's Matilda the Musical JR.

This is a story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the children she inspires will have audiences roosting for the "revolting children" who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson.

Packed with high-energy dance numbers and catch songs, Matilda JR. is a joyous girl power romp.

Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

Matilda: Well, I needed to learn to read words so that I could read sentences because basically a sentence is just a big bunch of words. And if you can't read sentences, you've got no chance with books.

Miss Honey: I believe Matilda Wormwood is an exception to the rules.

Agatha Trunchball: Do you think I would allow myself to be defeated by these maggots? Did you? Who do you think I am Miss Honey? A weakling? An idiot?

Miss Honey: I don't think this is teaching at all, I think it's just cruelty!

Agatha Trunchball: That is because you, Miss Honey, are pathetic. You are weak. You are in fact, a snivelling... little...

Come join the fight against Trunchball!
