Georgian Bay District Secondary School is thrilled to present their first in-person school play since the pandemic. Matilda: The Musical is being performed to live in-person audiences from May 26 - 28.
Two dozen students in the cast have been rehearsing for months to present this fun musical retelling of Roald Dahl’s heartwarming tale of a special little girl with an extraordinary imagination. A full live band made up of 10 student musicians helps to bring the show richly to life.
About the Show
Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical is the captivating masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the spiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life.
Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace!
