On 21 October Matilda: The Musical had its opening night at the Teatro Theatre at Montecasino to an audience of excited children and adults.

The multi-award winning production is based on the beloved children’s book by Roald Dahl and tells the story of Matilda (played jointly by Lilla Fleischmann, Kitty Harris and Morgan Santo), a young girl who uses her amazing mind to get the better of her dreadful parents, the Wormwoods (Stephen Jubber and Claire Taylor), and heartless school principal, Miss Trunchbull (Ryan de Villers).

The performance wowed from the very first scene and the end saw the audience give a standing ovation to the actors.

Matilda: The Musical runs until 2 December at the Teatro Theatre at Montecasino.
