The Academy of Children’s Theatre is performing a production of “Matilda: The Musical” for two consecutive weekends beginning September 27. The show brings to life the classic story by Roald Dahl of an extraordinary girl with a vivid imagination and sharp mind who courageously struggles with cruel parents and a headmistress.
Playing the lead role of Matilda, is Hannah Kamrell, a junior at Kamiakin. Jamie Goad plays the hilarious role of mean headmistress Miss Trunchbull. Portraying the goofy heinous parents are Stephen Miller and Megan Vaughn Boggs. The play is directed by Josh Darby and features a cast of 53 youth actors and five adults. The musical is engaging, thought-provoking, and profoundly funny.
Performances are September 27, 28, October 5, 5 at 7 p.m.; September 29 and October 6 at 3 p.m.
Attendees are asked to bring a children's book for a book drive to benefit the local Children's Reading Foundation.
