This story, inspired by the beloved book by Roald Dahl, tells the inspiring story of a girl who rises above her circumstances with wit, bravery, friends…and a bit of magic. “Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs and an unforgettable star turn for a young actress, Matilda is a joyous girl power romp.
