‘Revolting children’ ready to hit the stage

A Noosa school is now just weeks away from showcasing the outstanding talents of their awesome actors, dynamic dancers, and sensational singers in their latest musical.

This follows the disappointing postponement of the highly anticipated Noosa District SHS production of Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical due to COVID last year.

Rehearsals are hotting for the excited and proud cast and crew as they add the finishing touches needed to make this production Noosa High’s biggest and best yet.

The Roald Dahl children’s classic tell the story of Matilda, a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers.

She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey.

Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other’s lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda’s extraordinary personality. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils’ saving grace!

Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

Performances will be held at the Noosa District State High School Hall at the Cooroy Campus on Thursday 5 August, Friday 6 August and Saturday 7 August. Doors will open at 6pm for a 6.30pm start. Hot food and drinks will be available before the show and at interval.

Tickets are available at Trybooking.com and also at the door on the night.
