The Theatre at West Kings is excited to present the Annapolis Valleys debut of Matilda the Musical.

Direction by Hal Jessome, music by Richard Bennett and choreography by Netanya Backhouse, Matilda is sure to offer something for audience young and old.

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, this Tony Award-winning musical tells the story of Matilda, an extraordinary girl who, armed with a wonderful spirit and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her destiny. Packed with high energy dance numbers and memorable tunes, Matilda is a joyous girl power romp that tackles contemporary themes like bullying, neglect, and the positiveness of friendship through a whimsical and touching story line. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of a special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.
Some of the most notable songs include “Naughty,” “When I Grow Up,” and “Revolting Children”.

West Kings has earned a strong reputation in Nova Scotia for the quality of performances presented by the school of only 600 students. Next year 3 of the graduating students will be enrolled in post-secondary theatre programs across the country to follow dreams that were fostered performing for valley audiences. Drama at West Kings is the most participated extra curricular club available to students at West Kings with rehearsals typically on Thursdays and Sundays through the year and daily as we get close to show time.

The theatre program at West Kings is supported by a small group of community volunteers made up of former students, educators, community members and professionals from the industry and always looking for additional support, especially with fundraising. Please contact us if you might have a special skill that might help us foster and grow our exposure in the community.

Last year most of the musicals’ shows sold out so you are encouraged to order tickets in advance to avoid disappointment. Looking forward to seeing you in the audience and supporting performing arts at West Kings and the Annapolis Valley.

Adults $15
Students $10
