Matilda the Musical Jr Wows Audience

This year’s production of Matilda was a sight to behold: slick, professional and enthralling throughout. The messages that you can control your own story and that rebellion and protest can defeat the bullies was deeply embedded as the cast told the story with relentless energy, comedy and power. All of the characters were completely believable, adorable, scary, sweet and feisty in equal measures, and the relationships touching. The singing and dancing were second to none providing ample opportunity for the young cast (Years 7-9) to exhibit their spectacular skill and energy through the brilliantly choreographed company numbers.

This truly was an ensemble piece and it was apparent that everyone on stage was having the time of their lives.  Audience comments include:

“I just wanted to get in touch to let you know how blown away I was by yesterday‘s performance! It was absolutely incredible! The standard of the acting, singing and dancing was absolutely through the roof. The children were incredible and so professional. It was super slick. The casting was perfect and every single child on stage was invested.”

“Every single performance was incredible and I had to pinch myself that these were effectively children performing in front of me.”

“I just wanted to congratulate you and the whole cast and crew on an absolutely incredible performance. I had a feeling it would be good but I was completely blown away by how professional the production was. Every single cast member was brilliant and utterly committed. I honestly felt like I was watching a professional production.”

“Wow! What an outstanding, incredible show! We absolutely loved it! Imaginatively put together and full of energy! The children were amazing! “

“What an energy-filled, giggletastic 120 minutes of glee.”

I’ve just returned from my second performance of the day, this evening with my family, and we absolutely loved it. I’m just sorry that Thursday night is sold out, otherwise I would have loved to come again!
