From the pages of Roald Dahl to the stage: Matilda the Musical has opened in Milwaukee

About Matilda (website)

From the amazing mind of Roald Dahl comes the story of a most unlikely heroine. Unloved by her parents and belittled by her child-hating headmistress, Matilda boldly steps up to set things right with her cleverness, the help of her friends, and the support of her kind-hearted teacher. Straight from Broadway, this full-length Tony Award-winning musical will prove to audiences that everyone has the power to change their story. Performance runtime is approximately two hours & forty minutes.
