Mt. Gretna Playhouse


– The Sunday Times

The Tony Award winning Broadway hit! From the marvelous mind of Roald Dahl comes the story of a most unlikely heroine. Unloved by her parents and belittled by her child-hating headmistress, Matilda boldly steps up to set things right with her cleverness, the support of her kind-hearted teacher, and a little bit of magic. Based on the beloved book and movie, this musical will show audiences of all ages that everyone has the power to change their story.

Running Time: 2hrs, 40min with one intermission
