About this Event

Sometimes You Have to Be a Little Bit Naughty

The streets of Gateshead will be filled by the smell of rebellion when students from Eve Trew CATS presents Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical JR.

Based on the beloved book “Matilda” by Roald Dahl and adapted from the award-winning full-length musical, Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical JR. tells the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.

When Matilda sings, ‘Even if you are little you can do a lot’. It’s such a powerful reminder for each of us, tall and small, to take ownership in how we can create our reality. Through the process of putting on this musical, the students from CATS are doing just that: they are joining together and working hard to create this extraordinary event for their community. We think you will all enjoy what they, along with all their teachers, have worked so hard to produce.

Those who come to watch may receive the biggest hug in the world, one that even might hug all of the air out of them.

N.B. No photographs or videos whatsoever will be allowed in the auditorium. No videos or Flash photography will be permitted during the performance. This is to avoid disturbance to performers and to comply with copyright regulations and the regulatory children’s Act. 

Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical JR. is adapted from the full-length musical which was based on the book by Roald Dahl, and features a book by Dennis Kelly and music and lyrics by Tim Minchin. The show opened on the West End in 2011 and made its Broadway premiere in 2013. The musical earned seven Olivier Awards, including “Best New Musical,” and five Tony awards, including The Tony for “Best Book of a Musical.”

Matilda, a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers, lives with cruel parents who find her to be a nuisance, a lousy little worm, and a bore. When Matilda enters her first term at school, she captures the attention of Miss Honey, a kind teacher, and the two form a wonderful friendship. Unfortunately, the school is ruled by a tempestuous and mean headmistress named Miss Trunchbull, who hates children and delivers cruel and unjust punishments to all her charges. Matilda is determined to change her story, but will her cleverness and courage be enough to withstand the reign of Miss Trunchbull?

Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical JR. is presented through special arrangement with and all authorized materials are supplied by Music Theatre International 423 West 55th Street, New York, NY 10019, 212-541-4684, mtishows.com.
