Drama Club - Matilda
Participants will learn the nuances of performing arts and showcase their efforts in a culminating end-of-season performance.
Award winning ‘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. This play is inspired by acclaimed and prolific British author, playwright and novelist, Ronald Dahl, whose works also include some of the best-loved children’s stories of the 20th century; Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, The Witches, Fantastic Mr Fox, The BFG, The Twits and George’s Marvellous Medicine.
Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, Miss Honey. 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, participants will learn the nuances of performing arts and showcase their efforts in a culminating end-of-season performance in front of live audiences!
