WVHS Theatre Presents Matilda Jr.

AURORA – The Waubonsie Valley Fine Arts Department will be presenting Matilda Jr., the school’s 2021 spring musical, on April 29, 30 and May 1 at 7:00 p.m. and May 2 at 2:00 p.m. in the Waubonsie Valley Auditorium.

Matilda is billed as “the story is about a daughter of abusive parents, Matilda, who finds refuge in library books, which she reads quickly, and in creating her own stories. Things are no better at school, where Matilda also must face a tyrannical and cruel headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. She finds companionship in her teacher, Miss Honey, who, though well-intentioned, is shy and fragile. Brave little Matilda knows she has to stand up against the adults in her world, and in doing so, discovers her own remarkable powers. Matilda’s bravery teaches Miss Honey and her classmates an important lesson — that even though life can be hard, ‘nobody but me is gonna change my story’ so ‘sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty.'”
