The Gilbert Players proudly present Matilda, the musical. Matilda is an extraordinary little girl who, armed with a sharp mind and a vivid imagination, dares to take a stand and change her destiny. She is a genius who is born into a less brilliant family… her dad is a car salesman with a few scruples loose and her mum is an amateur ballroom dancer who values looks over books… not a great match for a girl who reads Dostoevsky in the original Russian. Things only get worse when Matilda’s parents send her to school at the ghastly Crunchem Hall, where she meets the tyrannical head mistress, Miss Trunchbull. Matilda, faced with these ridiculously rotten circumstances, bravely decides to take action. With the help of her friends and her kind-hearted teacher, Miss Honey, this miraculous girl inspires a little revolution proving that everyone has the power to change their story.
