Here’s some reflections from both a young person’s perspective as well as a mom’s…
I really enjoyed the creativity and ingenuity of all of the sets. I thought the interpretation was well thought out, the creators of the musical were very clever with its dialog and how they portrayed the Roald Dahl story to the audience. The actors were also very talented and you could tell that this was their passion and they loved what they were doing. My two favorite characters were the Principal, Agatha Trunchbull and Matilda’s dad Harry Wormwood. I was tickled by their sense of comedy, expressions and everything that they did. – River Tompkins, Do512 Family contributor, age 11
I was so impressed watching all the young actors, and of course, the star of the show, Matilda, was simply amazing! The songs and performances had me both tearing up and giggling, and I can’t wait to take my 8 year old to experience the magic as well. – Sharon Clark, Do512 Family Sales & Social Media Manager
