PacRep Theatre is pleased to present the Monterey County premiere of Matilda the Musical, by Tim Minchin & Dennis Kelly, playing February 6th through March 15th at the Golden Bough Playhouse in Carmel. Adapted from the well-known children’s novel by Willy Wonka creator Roald Dahl, wonder and amazement abound with this Tony award-winning Broadway Musical.
Packed with comedy, high-energy musical numbers and 16 catchy songs, Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical tells the story of a courageous, smart, and telekinetic young girl, with an unbounded imagination, who proves that despite the odds you can do anything – including righting wrongs and changing your destiny.
Under the direction of Susanne Burns, with musical direction by Michael Blackburn and choreography by Corinne Agro, the production features Lucia Gaglioti and Colette Gsell (double cast in the title role), Bri Slama as Matilda’s compassionate teacher Miss Honey, and Rhett Wheeler (Ursula from PacRep’s Little Mermaid) as the overbearing headmistress Miss Agatha Trunchbull.
Also appearing in major roles are guest artists Aimée Puentes, Christopher Scott Sullinger, Jennifer Nix Michael Blackburn and John Daniel, accompanied by a cast of over 30 regional performers. Musical numbers include such memorable songs such as “Naughty”, “Revolting Children”, “When I Grow Up”, “Miracle”, and “Bruce”.
