Based on the Roald Dahl children’s novel, Matilda the Musical is a fun,

spirit and abilities. Matilda is the neglected child of a ruthless car
salesman and self-absorbed amateur dancer who find more amusement in
their television than their offspring. Intimidated by her intelligence,  Matilda’s parents send her to Crunchem Hall, a school with strict set of

triumphant tale of small proportions; proving big voices can come from
small packages. $30-$85. 7:30pm Tue, Jun 6, Wed Jun 7, Thu Jun 8, 8pm Fri June 9, 2pm & 8pm Sat Jun 10, 2pm & 7:30pm Sun Jun 11, Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston Street, (210) 226-5700,
