We believe that every role in theatre is important.  We aim to challenge youth with each course to have them play increasingly challenging roles- be it through technique, being part of a group, learning a solo; all the while developing their work ethic and life skills to grow as a well rounded performer & awesome human.
Matilda has won 47 international awards!

Synopsis: 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.

We pride ourselves on the individual attention with each student. For example, we have a “check-in” to kick off each rehearsal, inviting students to share thoughts about their day, so that we can better gauge how they are feeling physically and emotionally.Melanie Miles, Creative Director & Matilda Director
