ABOUT THE SHOW:

The story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny. 

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda has won 47 international awards and continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages around the world.

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!

Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs and an unforgettable star turn for a young actress, Matilda 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.

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM:
Our largest production of the year, the All Company Holiday Play provides students the opportunity to work in a large ensemble of mixed ages with a live pit band. The play is selected for its potential to engage students in dance, song, and uplifting themes of hope and redemption. Following the notion that “It takes the whole cast to tell the story,” emphasis is placed on creating an ensemble made up of highly specific, individualized characters.  Through training in viewpoints, movement, voice, and physicalization, each actor is given the tools to create a memorable character that allows the ensemble to come alive.  Whether a veteran actor or a first timer at NEYT, all will learn, grow, and enjoy the process of putting this grand show up on its feet.
