Directors, Brittany Welch and Chase Grabowski, say, “You can’t go wrong with any of Roald Dahl’s stories. This musical adaptation of Matilda has all of your favorite moments from the book as well as the 1996 film and is supported by a fantastic score of memorable songs by Tim Minchin. With an amazing cast of young and adult performers, we are very excited for our community to experience this production.”

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 inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. With the 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 Miss Honey. During her first term at school, the two forge a bond as Miss Honey begins to recognize and 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 to punish 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, children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

Performances will take place in the Herbert L. Williams Theatre on the UW-Green Bay, Marinette campus. Please learn more by visiting  If you have questions or concerns, please contact Lauryn Albaugh, Director at the Herbert L. Williams Theatre, at
