The film Matilda The Musical (PG) will be showing at The Phoenix Theatre and Arts Centre in Bordon on June 1 at 11am.
Matilda Wormwood (Alisha Weir) is a little girl with big curiosity, a sharp mind and a vivid imagination – and the worst parents in the world.
While her parents (Stephen Graham and Andrea Riseborough) content themselves with trashy TV and dodgy money-making schemes, Matilda loves to lose herself in the pages of her beloved books.
On meeting her inspirational teacher, Miss Honey (Lashana Lynch), Matilda is encouraged and begins conjuring her own fantastical tales. Excited to attend Crunchem Hall, Matilda is surprised to find the school is an ominous and oppressive place led by the huge and villainous Miss Trunchbull (Emma Thompson).
Filled with an overwhelming sense of justice, Matilda dares to take a stand for what is right and teach Trunchbull a lesson she won’t forget.
Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical is a tale of an extraordinary girl who discovers her superpower and summons the remarkable courage to help others change their stories while also taking charge of her own. For tickets, priced £4 or £14 for a group of four, visit www.phoenixarts.co.uk
