Matilda Jr. – A Vandalia Youth Theatre performance

November 17, 2023  - November 18, 2023


Arbogast Performing Arts Center
500 S. Dorset Rd | Troy, OH 45373

We are thrilled to share some exciting news from Vandalia Youth Theatre. 12 talented kids from the Troy community, along with 1 exceptional student from Troy Christian and 7 incredible kids from Tipp City, have been cast in our upcoming production of “Matilda Jr.”  And our very own 5th grader at Heywood will play Matilda!   This delightful show promises to be a memorable experience for our young performers and the entire Miami County community.

Rebellion is nigh in Matilda JR., a gleefully witty ode to the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination! This story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the children she inspires will have audiences rooting for the “revolting children” who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson. Matilda has astonishing wit, intelligence… and special powers! She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. 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!

Three performance times:
Friday, November 17th, 7pm
Saturday, November 18th, 2pm & 7pm
