Matilda the Musical

King's-Edgehill School is proud to present Matilda the Musical, a delightful adaptation of Roald Dahl's timeless tale. This school production has the whole community buzzing with anticipation as the cast and crew have been hard at work to bring Matilda's story to life.

Matilda the Musical follows the extraordinary journey of a young book-loving girl with a knack for telekinesis. She faces a world filled with quirky characters, and with a dash of courage and a sprinkle of imagination, she takes control of her destiny.

What's remarkable about this production is the collaboration between Junior and Senior School students. The senior students have taken on mentorship roles, guiding and supporting the younger ones in the cast and crew. This partnership has not only elevated the quality of the performance but also fostered a strong sense of community and teamwork.

The dedication and enthusiasm of the cast and crew are truly inspiring. Rehearsals have been intense, filled with laughter and shared moments. From energetic dance numbers to touching solos, the students have poured their hearts into their roles, and it shows.

Behind the scenes, the crew's hard work is equally impressive. Staff and students have been working together to create a visually stunning production. The result promises to transport the audience into Matilda's whimsical world.

The excitement is building, and the school community eagerly anticipates the opening night of Matilda the Musical. It's a testament to the power of the arts in fostering individual talents and a strong sense of community.
