Matilda the Musical

Community Players Theatre presents Matilda the Musical, taking the stage as the final show in our 99th season. Sponsored by Miller Park Zoo and based on the beloved book by Roald Dahl, Matilda the Musical brings the story of a little girl named Matilda to life with music and lyrics by Tim Minchin and book by Dennis Kelly. Matilda is an extraordinary girl who, armed with a sharp mind and vivid imagination, dares to take a stand to change her destiny. She reminds us all that everyone has the power to change their story, and sometimes…well, “sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty”.

Matilda the Musical opens Thursday, July 14th with a pay-what-you-can preview performance at 7:30 p.m. The show runs three weekends in July (July 15-17, 21-24, & 28-31, 2022). Thursday, Friday & Saturday performances at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday performances at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are $20 for Adults, $18 for Seniors/Students/Active and Retired Military and $10 for Children 10 and under. Tickets can be purchased online at CommunityPlayers.org, at the box office, or by calling (309) 663-2121.
