Nominated for 12 Tony Awards, this dazzling musical will delight ALT audiences!
Finally! ALT is just a couple of weeks away from getting this exceptional musical on the stage. Originally scheduled for May of 2020, this show was postponed due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus. Always optimistic, ALT rescheduled the production for September 2020. As the pandemic continued to rage in our world, it became necessary to postpone the production again. Our persistence and the cast’s flexibility have made it possible to present this show to our audiences as it opens on May 13.
Based on Roald Dahl’s classic children’s book of the same name, Matilda follows Matilda Wormwood, a bright little girl who immerses herself in books. Matilda is discarded and belittled by her dimwitted parents—her father insists on calling her a boy and harps on her “stupidity” for preferring reading to watching the telly—and her hostile headmistress, the outrageous and wicked Miss Trunchbull. Reclusive, but with an ever-growing imagination and sharp mind, and with a caring protector in her teacher, Miss Honey, Matilda dreams of a better life, daring to take a stand against unjust forces and to grasp her destiny in her own, tiny hands.
One of the reasons we continued our efforts to produce Matilda is because we think the show is going to be spectacular and we have an absolutely phenomenal cast. It stars twelve year old ALT Academy student Laken Derington in the title role. Also starring in the cast is Nels Bjork as Miss Trunchbull, Mikayla Garren and Ryce Garren as Mrs. and Mr. Wormwood, Anna Bahn as Miss Honey, and Kissey Cummings as Mrs Phelps.The remainder of the cast includes Beth Alexander, Cinda Alexander, Brooklyn Cano, Mabry Fristoe, Dennis Humphrey, Hanson Irving, Emerson Johnston, Darby Laird, Sawyer Laird, Phoebe Laur, Piper Laur, Tiffany Laur, Caroline Nite, Maddox Nite, John Nite, Jace Norris, Bodi Parks, Zoë Parrish, Laken Reyes, Dakota Warren, Ellison Wyrick, and Jeff Wyrick.
We have waited long enough for this great show! It’s time for you to get your entire family to the theatre for an evening of nonstop fun. Get your tickets today!
Please note that ALT will be taking a cautious step forward toward “normal” as we will open up more seating which should get us up to about 75%. Although we won’t be completely full, we will increase our audience size significantly. We hope that this first step will help to propel us ever closer to operating at full speed in the coming season.
EVERYONE REMEMBER FACE COVERINGS ARE REQUIRED THE ENTIRE TIME YOU ARE INSIDE THE ALT FACILITY. NO EXCEPTIONS.
