Live theatre returns to the Warren Community Center Auditorium this weekend with Warren Civic Theatre’s Presentation of Matilda The Musical. This is the first live event in the WCC’s Auditorium other than city meetings. All other events were put on hold due to COVID. The staff is excited to have performances back in the auditorium and Warren Civic Theatre is excited to return to the stage as well.
Matilda The Musical tells the story of “a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence, and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly lovable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other’s lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda’s extraordinary personality.” The story was made popular by the 1996 film, starring Mara Wilson and Danny Devito. However, before the movie, it was actually a children’s novel by Roald Dahl, which was released in 1988. Whether you like the movie, the book, or both, after this weekend, you’ll love the musical as well.
There will be two performances of Matilda The Musical, one on Saturday, November 6 at 7 p.m. and the other on Sunday, November 7 at 3 p.m. Tickets range from $5-$15 and can be purchased online here.
