Join us for our Sensory Friendly Preview of Matilda!  

This performance will be different from the other performances in the way lights and sound are used, and will have minimal effects, in order to provide a positive experience for those who have epilepsy, are autistic, are neurodivergent, or otherwise need or prefer a performance without intense sensory experience.

Another great novel by the famous Roald Dahl, Matilda has inspired people all around the world – and now the story finally comes to the CTE/FVTC stage! Matilda is a brilliant girl who loves books and her teacher Ms. Honey – and she has astonishing telekinetic powers! Matilda’s home life is one of sadness and loneliness, but through her powers she begins to see what lies inside her is truly remarkable. Can she even lead the students to rise up against the tyrannical headmistress, Ms. Trunchbull? Can she outmaneuver her conniving parents? Matilda is truly a heroine for the ages, and her tale proves that wit, optimism, and a pinch of magic can truly save the day.  Matilda the Musical has won 47 international awards, and we are thrilled to finally bring it to our community!
