From The Director: I am very excited to direct Matilda. I have always loved the book, but I love the musical even more. Matilda’s strength and determination inspires everyone around her to become a better person. I also love working with a cast that includes both adults and children. The children share their energy and idealism with the adults, and the adults share their experience and professionalism with the children.
