In Matilda the Musical Jr., Broadway’s biggest little hero, Matilda, is an extraordinary little girl with a vivid imagination. Unloved by her cruel parents, Matilda is armed with astonishing wit, intelligence, and mysterious powers. At school, she catches the eye of her sweet schoolteacher, Miss Honey, but also the mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, who loves to think of clever ways to punish children. Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other and together they dare to take a stand against Miss Trunchbull to change their destiny.

Book by Dennis Kelly. Music and lyrics by Tim Minchin. Directed by Nate Bertone. Choreographed by Roderick Justice. Assistant Directed by Maddie Burgoon Jones.

All The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati’s Broadway-style MainStage productions, including ROALD DAHL’S MATILDA THE MUSICAL JR., are performed in the historic Taft Theatre, at 5th and Sycamore Streets in Downtown Cincinnati.

Sensory-friendly performances:

The sensory-friendly performance of ROALD DAHL’S MATILDA THE MUSICAL JR. on February 9 at 1 PM is intended for individuals on the autism spectrum, as well as children (and adults) with other special needs who may benefit. To create a sensory-friendly performance, the show is performed in a welcoming, supportive environment for those with sensory challenges. Slight adjustments to lighting and sound are made and effects such as fog, strobes, and lights that extend into the audience are minimalized. A downloadable Social Narrative (in Word format) is made available on the TCT website one week before the performance. At the theater, TCT provides an area staffed by specialists in the field where patrons can take a break from the performance if necessary, and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center has trained staff on hand.
