Matilda The Musical

The award winning Matilda the Musical will be presented by the HHS Drama Program in the Hanover High School auditorium April 21, 22 & 23. Friday and Saturday shows will start at 7pm. The Sunday matinee will start at 2pm. The show will feature district-wide students from elementary, middle and high school to fulfill the roles of young and old students as well as the main characters.

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical is the captivating masterpiece that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. Matilda has won 47 international awards and continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages around the world.

Matilda loves to read. She 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! Audiences will enjoy musical numbers such as NAUGHTY, THE SCHOOL SONG, the high energy REVOLTING CHILDREN and more!

British children’s author Roald Dahl, who had also written Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, wrote the original novel Matilda in 1988. The novel was adapted into a 1996 American film directed by Danny Devito. The musical opened on Broadway in 2013 and ran for 1,555 performances. Matilda the Musical was most recently made into a Netflix Movie this past December.
