Matilda The Musical

Matlida is in town! The children in the show are amazing (especially Jaime MacLean as Matilda) but my favorite was Miss Trunchbull played by Dan Chameroy. He/she reminded me of the British pantomimes of my childhood. I did occasionally find it difficult to understand the children who all had high pitched squeaky voices, but apparently they had a speech tutor to teach them to speak that way and with a London accent. Although it was a wonderful performance I would be careful of taking small children to see it. There are lots of loud bangs and shouting and a few scenes that they might find scary. Their next stop on the tour is Oklahoma.

If I had been in town this weekend, I would have gotten tickets to see this. It's had great reviews. Glad you had fun.
