Matilda – 2022 Fall Musical!

November 4, 2022

Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women proudly presents
the magical musical, MATILDA, with music/lyrics by Dennis Kelly and book by Tim Minchin. The
show will run November 10, 11, 12 at 7:00 pm and 13 at 2:00 pm in the Our Lady of Mercy Dismas
Center for the Performing Arts. (1437 Blossom Rd.)
Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by
her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of
her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other’s lives, as Miss
Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda’s extraordinary personality. Matilda’s
school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss
Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by
her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils’
saving grace!
Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs and an unforgettable star turn for a young
actress, Matilda is a joyous girl power romp. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted
by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.
The show stars Mercy’s finest young female performers in grades 8-12, along with a young male
performer from Hilton High School. General admission tickets for MATILDA are available at the door
for $15. There are also discounted tickets available at $12 for seniors 55+, veterans and students
under 18.
