Based on Roald Dahl's classic children's book, Matilda is a story of an imaginative girl who escapes her terrible family life by reading books. With the care and nurturing of her teacher, Miss Honey, Matilda dreams of a brighter life in which she fights injustice and creates a positive future for herself. Students in this class learn the lively songs and dances from the Broadway show and share highlights of the musical on the last day of class.
