About the Camp
This is a two-week, full-day summer camp session for kids ages 8-15. Camp meets Monday-Friday for both weeks, with a final performance on Friday, June 30th at 4:00. Auditions are held during camp, and every camper receives a role! Campers will spend two weeks learning the full script, songs, and dances of Matilda the Musical JR., and will perform all they’ve learned for friends and family at the conclusion of camp!
About the Show
Rebellion is nigh in Matilda JR., a gleefully witty ode to the 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!
Packed with high-energy dance numbers and catchy songs, Matilda JR. 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.
