Attention maggots!! This October, the award-winning Stage Door Theatre Company will transport you into the imaginative world of Roald Dahl with their production of Matilda jr.
Stage Door Theatre Company has built up a name for itself by producing top quality productions with a community focus. Previous shows have included Hairspray, Oliver, Billy Elliot, Annie, Jesus Christ Superstar, Rent and Les Miserables.
Matilda jr. is the story of an extraordinary little girl with extraordinary powers, astonishing wit, and intelligence. She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. However, at school Matilda must also face the tyrannical and cruel headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, who believes in Crunchem Hall’s motto: “Bambinatum est Magitum,” or “Children are Maggots.” Miss Trunchbull hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. Brave little Matilda knows she must stand up against the grown-ups in her world, and in doing so, discovers her own remarkable powers. Matilda’s bravery teaches Miss Honey and her classmates an important lesson — that even though life can be hard, “nobody but me is gonna change my story” so “sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty.”
