We had an amazing time seeing Matilda. The cast was fabulous. We were in awe of their musical talent. One of my daughter’s dance friends is in the cast, so we personally enjoyed watching her sing and dance her heart out.
My favorite character was Michael A. Shepperd as “Miss Trunchbull. Exactly the character I remembered, Michael had us roaring with laughter as he disciplined and taught the children.
We also enjoyed having the opportunity to meet the kid cast after the show. They are quite a group of talented youngsters. We especially loved the scene with the revolting children.
