Nottingham, 6 to 8 February 2024 – Squires Avenue will be filled by the smell of rebellion when The Bulwell Academy in Nottingham presents Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical JR.

Based on the beloved book “Matilda” by Roald Dahl and adapted from the award-winning full-length musical, Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical JR. tells the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.

Drama teacher, Miss Crick, who is leading the production, is delighted with the efforts of our cast members who have been rehearsing since November: “I am extremely proud of each and every one of them – they have been working really hard rehearsing songs and learning lines ready to give a fabulous performance to students, families and members of the Bulwell community. Their commitment to the show has been fantastic!”.
