Notice: Due to the protests in Hong Kong, this event has been postponed. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Matilda The Musical will be making its debut in Hong Kong from 20 September at The Lyric Theatre, Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. Inspired by the beloved book by famous author Roald Dahl, the award-winning musical has been shown on London’s West End and Broadway and received five-star reviews. Having toured Australia and New Zealand from 2015 to 2017, this is the first time it has ventured into Asia, debuting in Singapore in early 2019.
The musical tells the story of Matilda, a precocious five-year-old girl who loves reading and learning, but is suppressed by her TV-obsessed parents who pay her little attention. As she grows up, she begins to resist the challenges and obstacles presented to her. Seeking solace in the library in a world of her imagination and creation, Matilda forms strong bonds with adults such as Librarian Mrs Phelps and her class teacher Miss Honey. Together they give her the confidence to embrace her special gift and individuality which is needed to reclaim her life.
